It's been an incredibly long and tiring year, filled with scandals, incompetency, ridiculousness, horrors and general malaise. Just a small sampling:
Scooter LibbyI, myself, have come down with a severe case of Scandal Fatigue and I've decided to give this blogging thing a break for a little while. How long is hard to say. Blogging is surprisingly addictive so it's quite possible I'll jump back into the fray as soon as the muse hits me over the head. But in the meantime, I'll leave you in the good hands of John, Atrios, Jane, Digby, TBogg and The Rude Pundit (the last two should cover all your snark needs).
Randy “Duke” Cunningham
Hurricane Katrina/Michael Brown/FEMA/DHS
The Iraq War
Fake News Stories in Iraq
The War on Christmas
Social Security Reform
Bernard Kerik (Dec. ’04)
The Bankruptcy Bill
and, perhaps the topper (since supposedly making our country safer is what got The Big Turd Sandwich reelected), The 9/11 Commission's Final Grades
