Ask 43 conservative bloggers to name the worst Americans of all time, as Right Wing News did, and the results aren't kind to Jimmy Carter. The top 5:

  1. Jimmy Carter
  2. Barack Obama
  3. Franklin Delano Roosevelt
  4. Ethel and Julius Rosenberg
  5. (tie) Woodrow Wilson, Benedict Arnold

Check the full list for the rest (including Jane Fonda, Timothy McVeigh, Michael Moore, and the Clintons) and the participating bloggers. Hmmm, wonders Tommy Christopher of Mediaite: "In all of American history, 11 of the worst 25 villains are still alive?" Even fellow conservatives don't get it. Way too many "garden-variety Democratic politicians," complains Jim Geraghty of the National Review. "Not one villain from America’s business world?" (More Jimmy Carter stories.)
