Honorable Mentions: Justin Amash, Glenn Beck, Jim DeMint, Trey Gowdy, Bobby Jindal, Heritage Action, Louie Gohmert, Darrell Issa, Hobby Lobby, Sarah Palin, Jeff Sessions, Steve Stockman, Scott Walker.

10) Mike Lee: Lee is Robin to Ted Cruz's Batman and whenever there are conservatives fighting the Democrats or the Republican Establishment, he's right in the mix. Replacing Bob Bennett with Mike Lee turned out to be the biggest upgrade since Ronald Reagan took over for Jimmy Carter.

9) Mark Levin: Granted, Levin's push for an Article Five convention is a longshot, but it's a serious idea in an environment where the Democrats and Republicans all too often come across as preschoolers arguing about who gets to play with the toy truck next while the school burns down.

8) James O'Keefe: Who would have ever guessed that one guy with a gaggle of interns, some secret cameras, and a few tricks taught to him by the late, great Andrew Breitbart would be more effective at breaking big stories that humiliate entrenched interests than the New York Times or Washington Post?
