There's no getting around the fact that politics are fueled by fear, from smear ads convincing us the other candidate is going to raise our taxes and take away our guns, to people trying to tell you that the President wasn't born here and is going to kill our grandmas. That's why we're not surprised that Stephen Colbert wanted to hold a March To Keep Fear Alive (Now part of Jon Stewart's Rally To Restore Sanity And/Or Fear). Colbert just wants to continue the time-honored tradition of scaring people into making important decisions. So, we chose 14 people (and animals/things) who keep fear alive in politics as well as our daily lives. We gave them our own rating from 1-10 Colbert heads (of course), but tell us what you think by voting for the scariest one!
