I don’t want to vote in that contest. Sheriff Joe isn’t on the list.

Looking at the categories, makes me wonder if ACORN is involved:

COMMUNITY CRUSADER Creating solutions to a local problem or social issue

DEFENDING THE PLANET Innovative efforts to preserve and protect the environment

PROTECTING THE POWERLESS Advancing the cause of human or equal rights

and for that key age group, 14 thru 40 according to Zeke:

YOUNG WONDER Outstanding achievement by a person 25 or under

I vote for Glenn Beck as hero of the year. He’s uncovering political corruption in the highest office of the land and in the US Congress.

Where do we nominate someone other than the CNN picks?

Seven of ten are minority group members. The other three are white guys.

Aren’t there any white female heroes out there?

I was going to say, "What? No Barack Obama?"

I'm sure the rest of the heros are rated based on how Obama-like they are. If B.O. were on the list, there would be no point to HAVING a list.

He's just that awesome.

Your wish will be granted, sir.
Communist news network created the award and have decided that it will go to the dear leader. They just have to go through the motions of pretending to have a contest.
Just another participation award.

Hey, CNN! What about these categories:

PATRIOT

ENTREPRENEUR

DEFENDER OF FREEDOM

DEFENDER OF TRUTH

DEFENDER OF JUSTICE

Yeah... I thought not...

Would have liked to have seen some soldiers on the list, but it is CNN. I actually read some of the profiles and voted for the double-amputee. This kid got both legs cut off by a boat propeller. It’s tough to complain about things in my life when I read about something like that.

Glen Beck - far and away the most courageous and done the most to inform the nation of the enemy within.

The true definition of “hero” was represented by the incredibly brave action of US Air pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and his flight crew by saving 155 lives in the Hudson River crash landing.
