Damn, of course I had to mess up at least one thing - should be "25 Worst."

Well, there are some on that list I agree with (The Rosenbergs and John Wilkes Booth for example) but FDR clearly does not belong on that list. Without him, we would likely have been bounced out of the Western Pacific by Japan while Hitler's U-Boats choked the UK to death. The New Deal was very badly flawed, but FDR cannot be called a "Bad American".

As the author of the page you should see a pencil icon in the upper right corner, under the "wingnuts" topic description. Clicking that icon allows you to edit your page.

Yeah Dark, there are definitely some on there that would deserve to be on any list of horrible Americans. And definitely some of the "liberal" picks on there are complete a-holes. But the fact that you can get over 40 people to write lists of up to 20 of the people they think are the worst figures in all of American history:

- and over 20 will put down Carter, Obama, and FDR
- only 11 will put down the most notorious home-grown terrorist, McVeigh
- only 10 will put down the man who killed Abraham Lincoln
- fewer than 7, and possibly none at all, put down the man who killed JFK
- 7 will put down a man who makes silly, left-wing documentaries
- 9 will put Al Gore, presumably not because they think he was an evil VP, but because he made a movie about global warming

Just mind-boggling the state this country is in.
