The Ugly American
: How did I miss this? The BBC held a poll and found that Homer Simpson won the title of greatest American with 40 percent of the vote, beating out Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King at 10 each; Mr. T at 8 (!) Bob Dylan at 6 (!!); Bill Clinton at 4 (!!!).
They did this for a show about America’s place in the world. I can just imagine what a lovefest that must have been. Any of our British friends see it?
