Reagan the greatest American???

Give me a frigging break.

Is there some article you’d like to attach or reference, or is this more random babbling against anything to the right of center?

Reagan is to Great Americans as you are to interesting OP’s.

No link yet…Discovery’s 100 greatest Americans.

It was rigged.

I disagree. Reagan, for all his faults and for all I despised the man’s policies and politics, was nevertheless a patriot and an American. Not the greatest, certainly. But still and all . . .

Ooh, this is a logic problem, isn’t it? Let me see if I can figure it out.

While I’m working on it, I’ll comment that the greatest American was, is, and always will be George Washington.

I agree. If only he had handled the Whiskey Rebellion differently…

I voted for him. He finished 4th.

Who were 2 and 3?

Reagan, huh? Reagan.

Why couldn’t they have chosen Jesus or George W. Bush?

Lincoln was #2

Dr. King was #3.

Jesus wasn’t American.

Duhbya was #6.

More rigging.

Oh, holy cow. You have got to be joking. The man who is destroying America is the sixth greatest American?

God…I wish I was.

Scary ain’t it.

It’s like declaring cyanide the sixth best food delicacy.

Oh yes. Any outcome for a Republican which doesn’t entail tar and feathers is rigged. How’s that tinfoil fedora, Reeder?

You know, if you did a phone poll on the greatest movies of all time, you’d probably get Best Man as number one, this week, and Bewitched as number one if you waited a week.

A friend of mine once told me that Europe is where they think 100 miles is a long way, and America is where they think 100 years is a long time. Change the last to “100 days,” and I think you’ve got pop culture nailed.

This doesn’t surprise me at all, and it doesn’t take rigging: it just takes people with no sense of history and no knowledge about George Washington (he was the guy that invented peanut butter, right?) but access to a telephone.


One position above where Don Cherry finished on the Canadian list. Admit it, Canucks, you’re happier about that result now, aren’t you?

Actually, I think Lefty is right. This is very much a what have you done for me lately culture.

I’m not surprised at all. I never watched the show, but when I saw him in the top ten I knew what was coming.

President Bush at number 6? That’s surprising.

I don’t mean this as an anti bush or reagan swipe, but what is wrong with our culture? Crack addled fruit flies laugh at our attention span.

I just have to make sure. Britney Spears wasn’t on the list, was she?

I wonder if John Madden made the list.

This is an accurate statement.

Here’s an alphabetical list of the 100 you could vote for.


Lance Armstrong
BArbara Bush
Laura Bush
Lucille Ball
Tom Cruise
Elen DeGeneres
John Edwards
Brett Favre
Audie Murphy
Michael Moore
Christopher Reeve
Arnoold Schwartzenegger
Pat Tillman
Martha Stewart

It’s starting to look like the top five were a no-brainer.
