Greatest Americans?
Discover Channel is American Idling history - and its pretty sickning. I keep making the mistake of taking a look at it when its on.

Bill Gates? Elvis Presley? Oprah Winfrey? Billy Graham? George W. Bush? What the Fuck?!?! Hell Enistein is on the fucking list and (arguably) he isn't American

Are these really the greatest people our society has produced? OK so a few of them, might- might- be the greatest Americans but really its the every man that are the greatest. Some of these people - like Bush - are just someone that can take credit for greatness. He isn't great ( Bush is bringing about the downfall of civilization...) but people are willing to give him credit for "leading" the country though events such as 9/11 and the Second Gulf War (which he started because he's an impatient bastard proving to Daddy that he's worthy)

Yes they contributed to society (most of them anyways) but are people so shallow and ignorant that we consider Elvis Presley, Oprah Winfrey, and Bill Gates among our "Greatest Americans"?

I hope not, but I seem to be wrong.
