Let us now honor famous Americans who have overstrutted and fretted their hour on the stage, and then some:
1. Ted Cruz -- for his faux filibuster against Obamacare, more a gesture to aggrandize him.
2. Miley Cyrus -- for twerking at the V.M.A., for outlandish and ridiculous songs, and having a ferocious bad haircut. Now wearing nipple shieldsunder a see-through blouse. Okay: you're sexy, no longer a Disney Princess. But don't cop out with those damned nipple shields.
3. Johnny Manziel -- for just being a loudmouth douche that's off the track.
At least Rush Limbaugh is quiescent, like a sputtering volcano; and we don't have Keith Olbermann to kick around any longer.
Still, the likes of Nancy Pelosi is running free.
Any there is always the possibility of Emmanuel Rahm sticking his head up like a malevolent whack-a-mole.
