the Worst Americans of 2008

1 January, 2009 at 2:12 pm (Historical Figure, This Can't Be Good)

Michael Tomasky, an American who writes for a British paper (The Guardian), has made his list of worst Americans for 2008. You’ll never guess who Number 1 is! (hint: it’s not one of the Bush Administration. Shocking!)

In at least one obvious way, 2008 was a pretty good year in my country. We made history in electing an African-American president. I and 67 million of my fellow citizens brought the era of conservative dominance to a thundering close. For those of us who’ve been told for eight years that we weren’t real Americans – liberals, urbanites, non-believers, cabernet-sippers, same-sex lovers, anti-war-mongerers, Volvo drivers – well, the tables have turned. We’re the real Americans now.
