"Gip-per! Gip-per! Gip-per!"

By Wyatt Earp | June 27, 2005

The finale of The Discovery Channel’s search for “The Greatest American” was aired last night, and, to be honest, I was surprised at the winner. Ronald Reagan was voted “The Greatest American” last night, edging out Abraham Lincoln by 0.44 percent of the 2.4 million votes cast. (That must have really pissed off Matt Lauer!)

For me, it was a surprise, but a pleasant one nonetheless. Reagan was one of this country’s greatest Presidents (as was TR, but I’m not getting into that again), and his passing is still fresh in many minds. Maybe that’s what put him over the top. Or, maybe it was his astounding poll numbers throughout his eight-year term, his adept healing of a troubled nation, and his never-ending battle against the Soviet Bloc. Remember those guys? Whatever happened to them??

Congratulations, Mr. President. You are The Greatest American.

    True that.
    God bless Ronnie! (And may God have mercy on his twinkle-toes son, Ron!)
