Should put "talking head for Fox News" on your list Visegrip. Or better yet just simply "conservative talking head". Fox News has been found to tell the TRUTH only 18% of the time! Rush Limbaugh, another cultural hero for the rightwing, has been found to tell the WHOLE TRUTH only 7% of the time, and SOME TRUTH another 7% of the time. Frankly I don't know anybody from your list of 4 professions that lies as much as Fox News or Rush.

Just curious....why do you have prostitution listed as a "dishonest profession"? Seems pretty straight up to me...you pay for her services, she renders them, bam....transaction complete. Unless you paid up front and found out later it was a Ladyboy or she raised the price after the fact I don't see anything "dishonest" about the act. Illegal certainly (at least in this country), but not dishonest.

I agree.

What's dishonest about prostitution? You want a BJ. They're selling BJ's. You pay money and you get a BJ.

Prostitution was added for comparison purposes as it is an illegal profession.

Since you won't put any of my suggestions on the list I'll go with politicians.

BTW.... The NYTimes has just published the home address of Darren Wilson. Not even politicians have stooped this low.
