So Jason Collins is a hero because he's gay? Our standard for heroism has dropped quite a bit since Normandy.

Note from the Daily Dude: Jason Collins is a hero because he open declared his homosexuality while still playing-- risking both his career and livelihood, as well as condemnation from douchebags like Shapiro.
So who exactly does Shapiro consider a hero? How about radio host Mark Levin:
On the phenomenal @marklevinshow tonight to discuss 'Bullies'! Very excited. Mark's a hero. amazon.com/Bullies-Cultur...

Or radio personality Adam Carolla:
@adamcarolla is my hero: hotair.com/archives/2011/...

Or freshman senator Ted Cruz:
With Sen. Ted Cruz, Tea Party hero, in green room at @hannityshow! yfrog.com/mnk7sxuj

or the guy who ran against Sherrod Brown in Ohio:
Hero Josh Mandel running an extraordinarily tight race in OH with terrible incumbent Sherrod Brown: rasmussenreports.com/public_content...

Not exactly setting the bar that high, are you Ben?
