Battle Royale: Obama v. Jesus

Ha. This is brilliant:

An open-ended Harris Poll released this week shows Barack Obama getting the most mentions[as America’s top hero], with Jesus Christ the runner-up.

I don’t think too many people will be all that surprised Obama beats out Jesus as #1 hero in this survey. Personally, I am a bit surprised that Jesus is even #2, predominantly because  “hero” has a much different connotation than, say, “role model” or “idol.” Then again, maybe that’s just my own meandering interpretation of language.

On the other hand, I am highly surprised that George Bush is #5 on this list. Seriously, America? Where have you been for the last 8 years?
