Reagan, Believe it or Notâ„¢

"After a nationwide poll and AOL-fueled, American Idol-style GOTV campaign, 2.5 million Americans voted RONALD REAGAN the Greatest American who ever lived," writes trampoline. "Yep. The man who lied his way through Iran and all of Central America, who conspired to keep minorities poor... and who held two jobs in his entire life -- actor and politician -- beat out George Washington (who could never tell a lie), Ben Franklin (modern day Renaissance Man), Abe Lincoln (the Great Emancipator) and Martin Luther King (a 20th Century Moses who almost single-handedly saved American Democracy from its own debilitating hypocrisy). Even his son, Ron, seemed bewildered and bemused." (RCFYA)
