Top 100 Greatest Americans

Discovery Channel aired one of those annoying Top lists on Sunday. This time it was the Top 100 Greatest American list.

The list has some obvious choices like Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and Neil Armstrong.

The list also contains some downright stupid choices like Rush Limbaugh, Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Bush and Dr. Phil McGraw (Yes, the bald fat guy who provides deranged people with common-sense advice).

Check out the full list here.
