The year 2008 in review:
The highlights of 2008 for me, and proof positive that the Easter Bunny gods sure do have a sense of humor:
1: The video of President Bush nimbly ducking two shoes thrown his way during a press conference;
2: Seeing the merry, fun-loving face of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens on the front page of the newspapers the day he was indicted;
3: Watching Sarah Palin's infamous 'turkey pardon' video;
4: Tina Fey playing Sarah Palin - simply by repeating Palin's words verbatim;
5: Ann Coulter's jaw being wired shut;
6: OJ's court conviction and sentence;
7: Elliot Spitzer's $1000/hour date who trashed his entire life and career;
8: John McCain's statement "the fundamentals of our economy are strong" one whole week before the biggest economic meltdown in over 70 years;
9: "Joe the plumber", who campaigned for McCain, and turned out to be a non-plumber, back-taxes-owing deadbeat;
10: And who can forget Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol - raised on the strict 'abstinence' principle - showing up 7 months pregnant right after Palin's selection as McCain's VP pick?
Yepper, there were lot's of other things too, and it sure turned out to be a gut-busting year all right!
