THE GREAT AMERICAN LIST
When I think of Great Americans, I don't think of John Adams, Ernest Hemingway, Ralph Bunche, F. Scott Fitzgerald, James Polk, Marlon Brando, Eli Whitney, Lou Gehrig, Henry Clay, Thurgood Marshall, Oliver Wendall Holmes, Daniel Webster, Edward Albee, Tennessee Williams, John Marshall, or James Cagney.
No, I think of Madonna, Ellen Degeneres, Tom Cruise, Laura Bush, Dr. Phil, and Richard Nixon. You know, the people who have made America great!
I am so proud to be mainstream.
There was, of course, one notable ommission on that list. *cough* Don't make me be immodest.
