Person of the Year

I don't know about ye socks, but 2008 is a year yours truly can't wait to put in the rearview mirror.

As a tribute of sorts, I thought I'd rip off both Time Magazine and David Letterman and compile my list of the top ten people who made it such a downer:

10 & 9. Tied, Democratic governors Rod Blagojevich of Illinois and Eliot Spitzer of New York. One for ALLEGEDLY trying to sell a US Senate seat, and the other for ALLEGEDLY buying . . . well, something else.

8. CBS executives who cancelled "Jericho."

7. The pregnant "man." I don't care what kind of surgery it has undergone or how hairy the hormones make it, it's not a man.

6. "Reverend" Jeremiah Wright for his lifetime of damning America.

5. The guy who was brave enough to throw his shoes at President Bush, but wasn't so gutsy when Saddam Hussein was in charge.

4. The "Big 3" who showed up on private jets to ask for a multi-billion dollar hand-out.

3. Mortgage brokers who accepted "stated income" from loan applicants.

2. Oprah, for too many reasons to enumerate.

1. The Tragedy in Waiting, whose schemes to redistribute wealth (among other things) threaten to make 2009 an even crappier year.

OK, OK, OK, I promise to get out of this funk and post something more uplifting tomorrow. But, I'm gonna need some inspiration . . . pass the eggnog!
