Democratic Talk Radio announced ties in both the heroes and villains categories of their annual awards foe 2005. Senator Russ Feingold and anti-war protester/Mom Cindy Sheehan tied for Heroes of the year. Texas Republican Congressman Tom Delay and Vice President Dick Cheney tied as Villains of the year according to Democratic Talk Radio hosts Stephen Crockett and Al Lawrence.
Senator Feingold was chosen for the key role he played in halting the Bush Administrations efforts to keep the worst abuses of the falsely-named Patriot Act in force. Feingold managed to protect American civil liberties almost single-handed in 2005.
Cindy Sheehan demonstrated the power of an individual citizen to change the course of public opinion and influence government policy armed only with truth and devotion to purpose. Sheehan exposed the insanity of Bushs Iraq War policies. She is a great American and a citizen hero as clearly shown by the events of 2005!
Tom Delay appears to be at the heart of the influence peddling, bribery and campaign money scandals that are swirling around the most powerful figures of the current Republican-dominated federal government in Congress and the White House. The ties between the Jack Abramoff operations and Tom Delay are vast and close. The entire operation has started to expose a real culture of corruption in the leadership circles of the Republican Party. Delay is the most highly visible government official connected to most of the most disgusting examples of government corruption and abuse of power in the history of the nation.
Vice President Dick Cheney became known as the driving force behind the illegal NSA wiretapping operation of American citizens by the Bush Administration. Cheney looks to be deeply involved in the illegal outing of the secret CIA agent Valerie Palme for partisan political reasons along with his Chief of Staff Scooter Libby. Cheney was exposed in 2005 for the deceptive PR campaign to falsely tie Saddam Hussein to the 9-11 terrorist attacks and WMDs that did not exist.
