“Out of all the gangsters, serial killers, mass murderers, incompetent & crooked politicians, spies, traitors, and ultra left-wing kooks in all of American history,” asked conservative blogger John Hawkins, “have you ever wondered who the worst of the worst was?”
Though I had never thought about it before, a number of candidates instantly popped into my head: Charles Manson, Benedict Arnold, Ted Bundy, Ann Coulter.
Turns out I was way off. Hawkins polled a hundred conservative bloggers who selected the 25 Worst Figures In American History. Naturally, the top three slots did not go to gangsters, serial killers, or mass murderers but to Presidents: FDR (#3), Barack Obama (#2), and Jimmy Carter (#1).
20. Fulton Sheen – For creating the job of televangelist.
19. Joel Osteen – For everything.
18. Billy Graham – Because when I was a kid his televised crusades used to always preempt The Dukes of Hazzard.
17. The producer for the band Stryper.
16. Pope Boniface VIII – He knows why.
15. Anthony Sacramone – He knows why too.
I could say much about this list, but I’m hoping you will beat me to it. Read the rest here.
