25 Greatest? Hardly.

AOL and the Discovery Channel, as guided by the American public, goofed again. They’ve turned this into a popularity contest instead of an honest appraisal of our country’s history. Here is their latest list of the 25 Greatest Americans (presumably ever):

  • Muhammad Ali
  • Neil Alden Armstrong
  • Lance Armstrong
  • George W. Bush
  • Bill Jefferson Clinton
  • Walt Disney
  • Thomas Alva Edison
  • Albert Einstein
  • Henry Ford
  • Benjamin Franklin
  • Bill Gates
  • Billy Graham
  • Bob Hope
  • Thomas Jefferson
  • John F. Kennedy
  • Martin Luther King Jr.
  • Abraham Lincoln
  • Rosa Parks
  • Elvis Presley
  • Ronald Reagan
  • Eleanor Roosevelt
  • Franklin D. Roosevelt
  • George Washington
  • Oprah Winfrey
  • Orville & Wilbur Wright

The ones marked in red do not deserve to be on the same list as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln.
