The Worst People In American History–To Conservatives

Right Wing News conducted a survey of conservative  bloggers to find out who they thought were the worst twenty-five people in U.S. history. John Wilkes  Booth beat out Nancy Pelosi, but only by one vote. Jimmy Carter leads, followed by Barack Obama. Both are well ahead of Timothy McVeigh, who also trails Ted Kennedy, FDR, and LBJ.  The results:

23) Saul Alinsky (7)
23) Bill Clinton (7)
23) Hillary Clinton (7)
19) Michael Moore (7)
19) George Soros (8)
19) Alger Hiss (8)
19) Al Sharpton (8)
13) Al Gore (9)
13) Noam Chomsky (9)
13) Richard Nixon (9)
13) Jane Fonda (9)
13) Harry Reid (9)
13) Nancy Pelosi (9)
11) John Wilkes Booth (10)
11) Margaret Sanger (10)
9) Aldrich Ames (11)
9) Timothy McVeigh (11)
7) Ted Kennedy (14)
7) Lyndon Johnson (14)
5) Benedict Arnold (17)
5) Woodrow Wilson (17)
4) The Rosenbergs (19)
3) Franklin Delano Roosevelt (21)
2) Barack Obama (23)
1) Jimmy Carter (25)

It also appears that, in their view, we are living in really bad times considering how many of the worst people in American history are now living or were around in the not very distant past.

    The survey is useless.  There are no criteria given  for how people were qulaified as a  “Conservative,” and no information about how many people were polled, their geographical distribution, age, education, etc.

    From the results, it appears that many, if not most, of the respondents have little, if any,  knowledge of the significant events and personages who influenced  American history, or of events that took place prior to their own lifetimes, or the lifetimes of their parents..

    Also interesting, perhaps encouraging, that no Justices of the Supreme Court appear on the list.  And Richard Nixon must be spinning in his grave to be bracketed by Chomsky and Fonda!

    In the Kingdom of the Blind, the one-eyed man is king!
