George W. Bush More Vilified than Bin Laden, Hussein, and Satan!

In a recent AP-AOL poll readers were asked who their villains and heroes were. Honestly, the results are H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!

1. If you were asked to name a famous person to be the biggest villain of the year, whom would you choose?

  • George W. Bush, 25 percent
  • Osama bin Laden, 8 percent
  • Saddam Hussein, 6 percent
  • President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, 5 percent
  • Kim Jong Il, North Korean leader, 2 percent
  • Donald Rumsfeld, 2 percent
  • John Kerry, 1 percent
  • Rosie O’Donnell, 1 percent
  • Dick Cheney, 1 percent
  • Hillary Clinton, 1 percent

More After the flipOK, now before anyone even tries to begin to comprehend why George W Bush is considered a more sinister character than Osama Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Ahmadinejad, or Satan, it’s important to note that this was a random telephone poll of 1004 adults Americans. The same person that was “elected” twice to be leader of the free world was named the most villainous person of 2006. This begs the question, how did we get here?

Even sHillary made the list

Respondents were also asked to name their heroes of 2006.

2. If you were asked to name a famous person to be the biggest hero of the year, whom would you choose?

  • George W. Bush, 13 percent
  • Soldiers/troops in Iraq, 6 percent
  • Oprah Winfrey, 3 percent
  • Barack Obama, 3 percent
  • Jesus Christ, 3 percent
  • Bono, 2 percent
  • Angelina Jolie, 1 percent
  • Al Gore, 1 percent
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger, 1 percent
  • Colin Powell, 1 percent

The President was also chosen as the people’s choice for hero of 2006 but only by a 13% margin versus the 25% that “the decider” received for his sinister ways. The Soldiers/Troops in Iraq really are the real heroes who regardless of their political beliefs are doing their job.

What’s really surprising about this poll is that since about 83% of Americans identify as Christian that Jesus Christ ranks just fifth on this list of heroes.

Now it’s your turn to take part in my own poll.
