The New York Post Shamelessness Scale

The New York Post specializes in faux-outrage (accompanied by plenty of sexy pics of said outrage!), but never more than in the dead news days of August. Below, we rate the shamelessness of the Post's current faux-scandals. We're outraged!

[Shamelessness is ranked on a 1-10 scale, lowest to highest. "1"= Inklings of genuine shame, "5"= Milli Vanilli-level shamelessness, "10"= Donald Rumsfeld.]
