You know what time it is? Time to cast your vote for Ass Clown of the Week.

Select this week's newsmaker who you feel most embarrassed or shamed themselves by words or deeds.

And the nominees...

1. Lori Pellin: The woman who left her pets -- all 27 of them (25 cats and two dogs) -- locked in her Chevy Lumina on a 90-plus degree day while she went to gamble at Ameristar Casino.

2. Tony La Russa: The Cardinals manager upset lefties this week when he made comments at Tea Party Night at Busch Stadium in support of the right-wing group and Arizona's immigration laws. (And no, TLR was not woken up in an intersection just prior to making the remarks.)

3. Mary Wild: The Arnold woman who was sentenced this week to probation and ordered to write a 750-word essay for killing seven dogs that she left overnight in a hot van in June 2009.

4. Nigaila Gibbs: The alleged St. Louis prostitute was charged this week with practicing her trade knowing she had HIV. At least two of her former customers have since tested posted for HIV.
