Jesus loves liberals. However, the rest of us know they are total assholes.

As is my prerogative, being that I am the self-proclaimed Dead Pool 2013 champion, the first six (6) are carryovers. I have little doubt they will be dropping dead in the next 12 months:

1. Zsa Zsa Gabor

2. Billy Graham

3. Ariel Sharon

4. Eli Wallach

5. Bob Dole

6. I.M. Pei

7. Valerie Harper

8. Fidel Castro

9. Sam Simon

10. Wilko Johnson

Wildcard bonus pick: Bashar al-Assad

Oh, for crying out loud.

Oh, man. I maintain such high hopes for your wildcard, Sterling.

5. Roger Moore
6. Marion Barry
7. David Rockefeller Sr.

That was quick. Sterling and Cliff are tied with 1 only eleven days in.

"This is what a successful presidency looks like." -- Paul Krugmann

I can't access the threads before 2007, but Sharon has been picked since at least 2007, when he was on 13 lists. Here are some others from then who are still alive:

Billy Graham

Muhammad Ali

Henry Kissinger

Nancy Reagan

Eli Wallach

Fidel Castro

Olivia de Havilland

Jerry Lewis

Kirk Douglas

Stephen Hawking

Tony Bennett

Jimmy Carter

Many, many others, but I'm not including people I don't know the current state of or who were oddball choices. These are the first few folks I saw who have all exceeded their reasonable life expectancies from 2007 on.

With Sharon's passing, Abe Vigoda reclaims the title of living (?) man most often presumed dead.

I remember a time, back in the late 90s, when I thought nonsense like this mattered somewhat more than I do now. Now I see well-educated people yammering about the birth control choices of their daughters, or gay marriage, and I think they are morons.

What's the last day for this, or has it already started?

Well, I'll probably go to hell for this, but MLK Day could be a cutoff. I guess you'd have to go back in time to see what happened....

Jesus loves liberals. However, the rest of us know they are total assholes.

Last year it was January 13th.

As the self-proclaimed winner for 2013, I will arbitrarily set the deadline as Friday, January 17th at 9pm Eastern.

Did anybody have this Pears Gelding chick who dropped dead?

If they did they should have like 10 bonus points 1) under 30 and 2) so obscure nobody cares.

Mrs Jax Teller

Only obscure in the US. Very well known in the UK and Australia.Daughter of Sir Bob Geldof and Paula Yates.

Oh, man, this is the year I forgot to do a dead pool, and Mary Stewart is ALWAYS on my list.
