10 web design tragedies

I'm of mixed opinions on this website. I think it obvious that the site is meant as a satire. A weird mélange of over-the-top neocon rantings, videos, and brightly colored text, this site does its very best to offend everyone. But does that excuse it's horrible design? Does the insanely bad layout and aesthetics serve the satire? Well, yes, but how long can your eyes and brain handle viewing this site in one sitting?  It repulses the viewer like a six-day old road-kill. It scrolls on and on like that relative who never, ever shuts up. And worst of all, if the traffic counter at the bottom of the page is to believed, this site has had 1,486,959 visitors (+1 counting my most recent viewing).
