    Edit: After reading that list, the poll options surely could of been much better.

    Tricky Dick, because it's funny.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I could only fit 9 on there, and I only wanted one per president for variety. Technically Abe's nicknames could make up half the list. I did include an "other" option.

    Fair enough, I guess.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
