Limbaugh Beats Hillary On ‘Most Admired’ List

From the Washington Examiner:

Hillary Clinton ranks last on U.S. ‘most admired’ list, behind Rush Limbaugh, Bush

By PAUL BEDARD | JANUARY 12, 2014

Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state who leads all 2016 presidential polls, ranks dead last on a new top 10 poll of who Americans admire most, and at the bottom of who the world admires most, behind celebs like Angelina Jolie and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

According to the new YouGov.com poll conducted for the Times of London, Microsoft’s Bill Gates is the most admired person in the world, ahead of Pope Francis and President Obama, the runner-up on that list. Clinton ranks 27th on YouGov’s world list.

On the U.S. list, she does even worse, coming in 10th of 10 listed and most named. Among Americans, Pope Francis is the most admired, followed by the president, evangelist Billy Graham and former President George W. Bush. Even Rush Limbaugh, the nation’s most popular conservative talk radio host, beat Clinton. He came in ninth.

And Pope Francis probably wouldn’t be where he is on this list, if it wasn’t for Mr. Limbaugh.

For the poll, YouGov went to 13 countries that hold more than half the world’s population and asked people to name who they admire most. Only those living were allowed to be listed.

But [Hillary] Clinton, who plans to run on her record as a world diplomat, doesn’t show up in the top 10 of the other highlighted lists in the YouGov poll online.

U.S. secrets tattletale Edward Snowden appears up on some lists, including Russia and Germany.

Which is bitterly ironic, since Hillary has done more harm to the US than Snowden ever has.

  1. I see the Vatican’s PR Team is working overtime ..

    Nelson Mandela would surely have been ranked No. 1, had it not been for his recent and untimely death. In which case Hillary would have been bumped from the Top Ten altogether.

    Also interesting to note that No. 2, Barack Obama, had No. 7, the Dalai Lama, put out the backdoor of the White House with the garbage. Small world.

    Petronius’ All-Time Top Ten :
    (excluding divine, semi-divine, and mythical figures)

    1. Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton

      10. Q

      Note, three of the mentioned are real people. I like the first three because they’re Jewish. I like Mr Spock because he was always the voice of reason but he’s #8 instead of higher because he could be a real party-pooper. (Just ask Trelaine).

      My top ten list is ridiculous…but then…aren’t all top ten lists?
