    I find the news that 3 actors are the most trusted people in America sadly disturbing. Well, I take some small solace with the fact that neither snoop dog or tony romo made the list.

    Another celebrated figure on the right, the deceased Jerry Falwell. Leader of the so-called 'Moral Majority'.

    Jerry Falwell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Falwell's staunch pro-Israel stand, sometimes referred to as "Christian Zionism", drew the strong support of the Anti-Defamation League and its leader Abraham Foxman.[18] However, they condemned what they perceived as intolerance towards Muslims in Falwell's public statements. They also criticized him for remarking that "Jews can make more money accidentally than you can on purpose."[19][20]

    It's also interesting to note that many right-wing politicians and spiritual leaders on the right were/are TRULY anti-Semites, yet they continue to receive accolades by some of the same people who would criticize Carter.

    Problem is, who are you going to get that enough people have heard of? I trust my Dad, but for most people he'd elicit a "who's that."
    We agree on something! I don't most people would be answer this poll in a qualitative answer. I have to think pretty hard about someone I trust who people would have heard of, and the best I can come up with is John Stossel. I can imagine people might have said Tim Russert when he was alive.

    Wow....Many wonder why, the US is going down the ****ter

    For the record, President Carter was horrible and is by far the worst President we have ever had

    Carter's man love for Arafat made terrorism chic. Just the thought of him embracing a terrorist is sickening.

    Of course, terrorism can't be applied to anything Israel has done. They are all sunshine and rainbows.

    I can't follow your post. What source? What goat?, What whip? Who should I tell to sit up and beg? What is the meaning of GWShiiteForBrains?

    If you're talking about Mother Teresa you couldn't be more wrong about that evil sadist. Please read the Missionary Position - Christopher Hitchens, or just watch a speech of his or a documentary.

    Also, Ghandi had issues too.
