Octomom Nadya Suleman = A-Hole
It's irresponsible knuckleheads like this who give a bad name to charity. This woman is vile on several levels, but the worst is knowingly and needlessly endangering the lives of so many children.

NBC Nadya Suleman interviewed by NBC's Ann Curry.
"Is this how she's spending her octo-donations?
Octuplet mom Nadya Suleman was spotted Wednesday in California shopping for video games and was captured on film checking out the Nintendo Wii and its accessories. The Wii retails for about $250. The controllers she was eye cost about $40. If she buys one for all 14 kids, that will addup to about $560.
And how might she pay for such a purchase?
Suleman recently launched a colorful heart-covered website soliciting donations for herself and her gigantic brood.
The Internet web site, thenadyasulemanfamily.com, is decorated with a baby bottle, pacifer and a rainbow - and a giant "donate" button.
"We thank you for the love and good wishes sent to us from around the world," the site reads in bright purple letters resembling a child's handwriting.
"They are all healthy and growing stronger by the day" Suleman, 33, deemed a "proud mother of 14" on the site, gave birth on Jan. 26 despite $50,000 in debt and no job.
Visitors to her new website, therefore, can directly donate with a credit card.
The octo-mom insisted in an interview with NBC that she didn't choose to have the eight children by in vitro fertilization - on top of her six other kids - to get handouts.
"I'm not receiving help from the government. I'm not trying to expect anything from anybody. I just wanted to do it on my own," she said, adding that any assistance she's getting is "temporary."
The Los Angeles Times, however, is reporting that Suleman gets $490 a month in food stamps and another $600 in disability payments for three of her older children who suffer from ADHD, a speech impediment and autism.
The San Francisco Social Security Administration also told the paper that a single parent like Suleman with disabled kids could qualify for up to $2,900 a month in state and federal help."
I feel for these kids, I think they're pretty well screwed, but I could never send this woman a dime. I'd be too afraid it would end up as a botox injection.
