Greatest American my butt

I saw a commercial a few days ago for the Discovery Channle's "Greatest American" TV show. Basically, viewers were able to vote on one of 100 people they thought were the greatest American who ever lived. It was down to the final 5. They were: George Washington, Dr. Martin Luther King, Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln, and Ronald Reagan(!). I was floored. I was offended. I was immediately reminded how dumb Americans are that Reagan could end up in the top 5.

Imagine how floored I was when he was named #1.

I was going to go on and on about it, but my friend Ben said all that needs to be said, and said it well. See for yourself.
