It's the Friday Finals, my choices for the week's biggest winners and losers, and the reasons why. First the winners.

The all-star winner this week is Vladimir Putin for the shirtless picture of the Russian president on a fishing vacation in Siberia. Russians were wowed.

The second winner's spot goes to Putin for another shirtless picture on the same vacation. Europeans go weak and pallid with envy.

The third winner goes to Putin for another picture from that same vacation. American presidential candidates are standing in front of full-length mirrors saying, "Uh oh."

Vladimir Putin, all-around winner of the week, sweeping aside any other because, after all, everybody else is a mere mortal.

Now the week's losers, chosen by me and my staff.

John Couey, of course. He got the death penalty in Florida that will be carried out in record time no doubt. You look up "loser" in the dictionary and you see Couey's picture.

Our babe "Anchorwoman" from earlier this week. She had a reality TV show one day about the switch-over from bikini model to anchorwoman and the next day it was cancelled. When she was here I warned her it's a rough business.

John Edwards is a big loser. When Mrs. Obama seemed to take a swipe at Hillary, it was clear she really hadn't. But Edwards saying he'd never rent the Lincoln Bedroom, that left bruises in Clintonland, and Edwards couldn't say it was an accident.

That's My Word.
