By their fruits ye shal know them....

The folks over at rightwingnews.com took a poll of selected bloggers (i.e., they asked people to respond - no, I wasn't asked), asking them to select The 20 Worst Figures in American History. I could discuss the whole list, but it's probably easier just to reprint it:

1.Julius Rosenberg and The Rosenbergs15+5
2.Benedict Arnold19
3.Bill Clinton15
4.Jimmy Carter14
4.Jesse Jackson14
6.Noam Chomsky13
7.Alger Hiss12
8.John Wilkes Booth10
8.Hillary Clinton10
8.Lyndon Johnson10
8.Timothy McVeigh10
12.Charles Manson9
12.Al Sharpton9
14.Aaron Burr8
14.Richard Nixon8
16.Aldrich Ames7
17.Robert Byrd6
17.Lee Harvey Oswald6
17.John Walker6
17.Franklin Delano Roosevelt6
Honorable mention, with 5 votes each, went to Ted Bundy, Jane Fonda, John Wayne Gacy, John Walker Lindh, Joe McCarthy, Michael Moore, and Boss Tweed.

No Spiro Agnew, J. Edgar Hoover, William Tecumseh Sherman, John Dillinger, Clyde Barton, Al Capone, Billy the Kid, Orval Faubus, Lester Maddox, Bernard Law...apparently there's nothing worse to the right wing blognoscenti than being a political opponent.
