Who do I admire, and who do
I dislike in politics (from 2004)
35. WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE AMERICAN PRESIDENT?
Jackson WHY? Stud. Handsome stud. He's not on the
20 for no reason. He was our most handsome president. Oh, and he transformed the nature of the presidency through shear charisma.
36. WHO IS YOUR
LEAST FAVORITE AMERICAN PRESIDENT? Taft
WHY? Well, aside from the fact he was a fat slob, he also presided over a major financial scandal that
passed public oil land to his friends for pennies.
37. WHAT CURRENT POLITICAL LEADER (ACTIVE WITHIN LAST FIVE YEARS) DO YOU MOST ADMIRE?
Koizumi, the Prime Minister of Japan WHY? Despite a scandal, he is a good reformer who has tried to take on the mafia and change the power structure
of the country and still get re-elected. He is not perfect by any means, but he is a very charismatic person with some good ideas about moving his
country forward, even though the thought of changing their constitution to allow for an offensive military scares the crap out of me.
CURRENT POLITICAL LEADER DO YOU LEAST ADMIRE? Karl Rove
WHY? He is an evil fundie theocrat. Anti-American to the core.
