Thanks for the kind words on my own attempt at a 20 worst list. I like your suggestions of keeping it to ten. What's wrong with a "top ten"? Remember all those top ten lists a few years back from david letterman's show? Why 20? That's a lot- I could only come up with 15. I stand by my choices, except maybe I was too hard on Sandra Day O'Connor. I would say that she "irritates" me ( as one commenter suggested) rather than makes me ashamed for my species, gender, country like Henry Lee Lucas.
I would say that your list seems really reasonable, except I disagree with you on Limbaugh. I am not any kind of Limbaugh fan, mind you. But the man did help develop the conservative revolution of the '90s by backing Gingrich and the 1994 congress' Contract with America- leading the charge against Clinton's excesses, etc. The people he drew to the movement makes up for the ridicule he drew from his opposition.
I don't think Hannity is in the same caliber, of influence or charisma/presence. O'Reilly has the charisma/presence thing going for him, but I think he gets a little too moralistic sometimes ( like Hannity). People always say O'Reilly is rude, but I notice he always thanks his guests politely for coming on. and makes sure everyone gets a chance to speak. He is loud and opinionated, but i don't know if that deserves the term "blowhard".
You are right on the money with Ann Coulter.
