Greatest American on Discovery Channel outrage
I have not watched the show, but according to press accounts, Jim Anchower was left out of the top five!

This show had to be rigged. Jim Anchower has lead American intellectual thought for so many years. He defines American courage, morality and thoughtfullness. He truly is the greatest American who has ever lived.

So, everyone, email the Discovery Channel and tell them what assholes they are.

3. I thought it was a popular vote.
Obscure figures, however important, fare poorly in mass polls.

5. Mr. Anchower is certainly popular
He has a widely read newspaper column in America's Finest News Source.

8. what was an outrage is that
Ann C was passed off as a mainstream commentator. One wonders if she had her baseball bat with her.

9. It means as much as American Idol.
A useless poll. And on cable/sat TV.

11. Jim Achower is the philosopher/king of America
At least as much as Andy Rooney or Mike Royko.

13. I'm not familiar with him.
I suspect many people aren't, but now I'm intriqued.
I stand by the American Idol comparison.
