It's an embarrassment of riches this week for nominees for the Worst Week in Washington prize. Join The Fix blogger Chris Cillizza for a live video chat in which he revealed his pick.

Drumroll please.

Barack Obama! After dodging the "award" for 13 straight weeks, the President's number came up this time around after the ongoing mosque controversy, declining poll numbers and a trip to Martha's Vineyard!

I'm not saying you personally Chris, but when the Pew report tells us that 60% of those that think the Prez is a Muslim learned that info from the media, it's time for the media to stop and think about how misinformed some people are, and take responsibility for that misinformation. At the very least, personal responsibility for their own reporting.

Who were this week's runners up?

See you next week.
