ROBOSAURUS
Rank: George The Dude
Nominated by The Dude

Dinosaurs=Awesome
Dragons=Awesome
Giant Fighting Robots=Awesome
Combining the three=SUPER AWESOME!

Nothing says "Awesome" like a giant, mechanical, fire-breathing dinosaur that eats cars and transforms into his own semi-trailer. Created in 1989, and inspired by the Transformers line of toys, Robosaurus has been touring the country, performing at monster truck rallies, airshows, state fairs, and countless other events, spreading it's message of awesome destruction all over the world!

He inspired "Truckasuarus" from the 1990 The Simpson's episode "Bart The Daredevil."

Even Stephen Colbert is a fan. Colbert plays a clip of Robosaurus destroying a car when he wants to "feel better about America".

He even had a pilot for his own television series on NBC called Steel Justice.

It just doesn't get a whole lot more awesome than Robosaurus.

Walter Cronkite
WALTER CRONKITE
Rank: Solo the_mad_nader
Nominated by the_mad_nader

Cronkite is widely known in the United States as "the most trusted man in America." He covered the Battle of the Bulge during World War II, the Nuremberg trials, and several other pivotal moments. The anchor for the CBS Evening News for 19 years, his voice and journalistic integrity attached itself to monumental moments in American history. Cronkite criticized himself for being at a journalistic loss for words in 1969 when man first landed on the Moon. However, his smile and relief when the Lunar Module first touched down spoke volumes, and reflected the world's feelings on that monumental occasion. He is also remembered for his coverage of the Kennedy assassination. His muted emotion lent gravitas to a desperately troubling situation. When he removed his glasses on air and announced that "President Kennedy died at 1 p.m. Central Standard Time." (glancing up at clock) 2 o'clock Eastern Standard Time, some 38 minutes ago."

Cronkite was an enormous proponent of the Space Program, and did a great amount of work for NASA. Cronkite passed in 2009 at the age 0f 92. He was awesome.
