Andrew Bard Webber?

Timothy Noah has a nomination for "the single stupidest sentence" ever printed in The New York Times. It's hard to argue with his choice:
Mr. Lloyd Webber is often referred to as the Shakespeare of his time with musicals like Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Cats, and The Phantom of the Opera.

Gloriously wrong on so, so many levels.

In our arts climate today, success equals quality. And thus, we are forced to heap honors and superlatives upon the merely financially successful, from Stephen King to ALW.

Isn't that what the Tony's are all about, anyway?
