2012 Liberty Medal Recipient To Be Announced Next Week, And We Hope It’s Not Gonna Be Someone Annoying Again
Oh, Liberty Medal. Year in, year out, and so much squandered potential. Just look at this list of compromised, WTF “winners.” It’s crazy to think that it’s been nearly a decade since they gave this thing to someone who didn’t provoke an initial reaction of “Really?” And what have we got to show for it? Kim Delaney getting all cuckcoo? A very odd Bono/Rendell photo op? In recent years, it just hasn’t been worth it. In fact, it’s time the National Constitution Center named a recipient that could finally be universally agreed-upon and turn the Liberty Medal train around — and we’ll find out who that is on July 5th, when the announcement is made. We’ve got our fingers crossed: Please say it’s this guy.
