Take political affiliations out of the picture real quick and remember that Donald Rumsfeld once shook the hand of Saddam Hussein.

Then hear this answer he gave to the Financial Times ' Gideon Rachman during a discussion of football during Super Bowl Sunday.

"Nobody could support the Raiders," Rumsfeld said. "They're evil."

Rumsfeld was pimping a book about his role as Secretary of Defense -- he resigned four years ago under a touch of scrutiny -- and he asked Rachman whether the FT was rooting for the Steelers or Packers.

Rachman responded that he was rooting for the Steelers because he loved their epic battles with the Raiders back in the day, at which point Rumsfeld dropped the quote above, began laughing maniacally and strolled back to his office.

Then he unleashed a plague on the people of Earth. Okay, not really, but this does beg the question: "Who seems more evil, Rumsfeld or Al Davis?"

Davis' appearance gives him an edge in my eyes, but his realm of meddling -- only football -- hurts his evil-ranking by a substantial amount. Add in his age and inability to really do total destruction (and/or forget to create chaos) and Rumsfeld probably takes the cake.

Donald Rumsfeld: Raiders are 'evil'

A politician like Rumsfeld has it so breded into him to accuse others of evil, wrongdoings, etc.  It's the only way he can live with himself by trying to bring others down to his level so he can proclaim his actions were "a message from the Lord" or "to save the children" or "my duty as an American to take down those that have no regard for human life, not even their own".  Oh! wait this last comment was a quote from General Jack Ripper from the Stanley Kubrick classic film, "Dr. Strangelove"!

Donald Rumsfeld: Raiders are 'evil'

wth?!  I know Raiders fans who think Davis is evil... I mean, hell, ISN'T HE?!  No offense, but you have 2 pictures, one for Rumsfeld and one for Davis and only one of them actually looks evil and that's Davis.  But then to be fair... I'm a KC Chiefs fan...

Donald Rumsfeld: Raiders are 'evil'

Full disclosure:  Not a Raider fan.  Rumsfeld could have some personal issues to deal with.  For all we know his mother wife him reading a picture magazine featuring Raider cheerleader Jane Lubeck, a magazine published by a guy who wears pajamas 24/7.  That may have given him shame and the problems that result from that  led him to believe the Raiders are evil.  Just sayin'.

Donald Rumsfield: Raiders are 'evil'

Ah Rumsfeld...  Here are some other things he declared evil:

Cats (No joke, he actually believes that they are "harbingers of the devil"... mmmmkay!)
The exposed breast of the Lady of Justice statue (true)
Women admitting that they poop.
Thoughts of naughty words.
Thoughts of aliens
ANY Thoughts by Athiests and Agnostics
Al Bundy
Mean people who made fun of his quotes, no matter how funny they were.
The Raiders... again... They're double evil.

Donald Rumsfield: Raiders are 'evil'

Who is Rumsfield?  I have heard of a Donald Rumsfeld, but not a Donald Rumsfield.

SirRosis, get it right.  It's Ronald Dumbsfeld.  I'm sure the maniacal laugh referred to was similar to the one he had when responding to someone questioning his assertion that the Iraq War would be over in 3-4 months.  Two traits not favorable for being a good leader 1. Conscienceless liar 2. Stupidity
