    What a bunch of tools.

    I personally like the fact that 10 people found Margaret Sanger as “bad’ as John Wilkes Booth. Hmm. Woman who spoke up for rights of other women and a crazed dude who assassinated the President of the United States.

    And Jimmy Carter the worst? I thought Republicans liked him. His weak presidency lead to the Reagan era. Make up your feeble minds.

    Oh boy. I think the list should be changed to “Approx. 30 Uneducated Nutjobs pick 25 Random People They Don’t Like”

    I’d be shocked if 5% knew who Noam Chomsky is. Got to like that the guy who assassinated the first (what was then named) Republican President was more popular than Jimmy Carter.

    Good lord President Obama number #2 I’m surprise that Rev. Jesse Jackson, Aaron McGruder & Min Farrakhan didn’t make the top 25.

    This kind of stuff is just dumb. It generally comes up when someone is bored and says, hey let’s make a list. It doesn’t really suggest anything. Of the 25, 19 or so are just a random list of liberals that have raised conservative ire in the post ww2 period, with a predictable preponderance on recent history. And then there’s a sprinkling folks like McVeigh and the Rosenbergs and Booth, apparently due to the fact that some folks took the poll seriously.

    But then we already know the internet is a weird place. I did a quick google on “worst conservatives” and one of the top hits included a list of best liberals that had John Edwards on it. Some sort of time capsule, i guess.

  7. Chris Says:

    The list itself is of no consequence, my comment was directed more towards all of the people commenting about the list.
