This Bush? As in, GW Bush?!?! The fucking Decider?!??!
I hate this poll.
Oh, I get it...they asked Osama Bin Laden and his buddies who they admired most. Now it makes sense.
Not in the world, in the US. The question was asked of Americans, but they could name anyone in the world. But come on, they're Americans.
"Bush wins despite just 10% of Americans naming him, which is two points more than his predecessor, Bill Clinton, receives. That score is Bush's lowest in the seven years he has been named most admired man, and the fact that it is enough to win suggests that no dominant male personality has captured the public's admiration this year.
"The remainder of the top 10 most admired men after Bush and Clinton are former Vice President Al Gore (6%), Sen. Barack Obama (5%), the Rev. Billy Graham (3%), former South African President Nelson Mandela (3%), former President George H.W. Bush (2%), Microsoft founder Bill Gates (2%), Pope Benedict XVI (2%), and former President Jimmy Carter (2%)."
@3: Yes, you're right, sorry. Fixed the post.
OK, so we were lying to the pollsters on the third one.
Next time don't ask us questions when we've had one too many Mojitos.
Here's the real headline:
Americans Admire Liars, War Criminals, Salespeople, And Others They've Sort Of Heard About On The News.
This reminds me of David Cross's bit: "I do believe on a whole that women are definitely smarter than men. I also believe that dogs are smarter than women."
people are cattle.
The people asked were honary members of the LIAR"s club, and Still Hoping for adult Literacy, headquartered in Texas.
