The Worst People in America
The Dummocrats staff participated in John Hawkins' poll to determine the worst people in America. While some of our picks (Fred Phelps, Noam Chomsky & Jimmy Carter) made the list, Kellie Pickler, Warren Anderson and Duke Cunningham were conspicuously absent.
Lists like this are fun to make and read, but there's also something a little bit depressing about them. These really aren't the worst people in America. The RWN list is full of obnoxious people that "right of center" bloggers disagree with. Despite what some loons at the Democratic Underground might think, disagreeing with someone's politics doesn't make them evil. I really don't think Hillary Clinton is evil. I just think she's wrong about a lot of things. I think liberals believe their policies are the right thing for the country. Conservatives feel the same way. We all want to do the right thing, sometimes we disagree about what that is and how to get there:
There ain't no good guys
There ain't no bad guys
There's only you and me
And we just disagree
When I think of the worst people in America, I think of the people on Dateline getting busted trying to have sex with minors they met on the Internet. Or I think of people beating up their wives and kids. Or a egomaniacal boss making his employees' lives miserable. I don't think of liberals. Really.

|Generally a reasonable statement, but Jimmy Carter?
I'm glad you don't think I'm evil, btw.
