#1 in my book. The upside is that the politicians don't see themselves as being hoisted on their own petard, but the rest of the country does. Public ownage, FTW.

Citizens are hugely to blame for failing to think 10 minutes ahead.

But that Sandler guy...fuck him. Clinton should be higher.

It's funny they have Raines on there at #5 and Clinton #23, but Jimmy Carter is nowhere to be found. Check out the "Community Reinvestment Act" from 1977. This is the same bill that Clinton really pushed hard when he was in office.

They're no 2 if you sort it by votes. Beat only by Bush. (of course due to the majority voting for him instead of taking responsiblity for their own actions)

Lmao...
My first name is Harrison, and i love TX.
That building is next door to our shop in FORT WORTH.
That was late at night, after the track. First outing on slicks.
I like it because night time is when the car shines, 90% of the time i'm "riding dirty" and i usually work alllll day on it, and the only time i get to drive it is at night.
I would look like shit during the day anyways.

I really like the pic. I honestly thought there was a Harrison, Texas. Hell...there is! It's 6 miles down Hwy 6 from Waco!

Clinton's average rank is "7" and the American Consumer is "8" with 10 being the worst. Therefore, the American Consumer is ranked worse than Clinton.

It's a little confusing because of all the votes, but that is how they are ranking them.

That just means a lot of people are voting for him, doesn't really mean jack. 1,000,000 people could vote you as innocent or not to blame and you would be number 1 if sorted by votes
