Keep in mind these are Nice Deb’s top posts – not the top stories of the year by a long shot, as you will soon see. These are simply the posts that brought in the most traffic, here, for whatever reason – *cough* big blogs linked *cough*.
So thanks to Michelle Malkin, Ace of Spades, Hot Air, Doug Ross, NRO, and even Instapundit in one case (he usually shuns me), and a slew of smaller blogs, these posts turned out to be my biggest hits of the year.
Without further ado, the fab five of 2010:
Remember the excitement and high hopes we had for Scott Brown when it was dawning on everybody that he had a real chance of beating the supposed shoo-in, hapless Martha Coakley? Even though he didn’t turn out to be the conservative hero activists were hoping for, the fact that a Republican took Teddy Kennedy’s seat in one of the bluest states in the union, in a year when Dems were trying to pass ObamaCare in his loving memory…. is still pretty damn sweet.
I knew for weeks before the event, that the moonbat convergence known as the One Nation Rally was going to be a huge boon for conservative blogs. All one had to do was look at the list of sponsoring organizations to know that it was going to be a debacle. It was, as numerous videos and photos could attest. Socialist group-thinkers, hippies, moochers, Islamists, union drones, and no-accounts showed up, and proudly displayed their true colors for all to see. And then they left behind a depressingly predictable huge pile of trash, which was also recorded for posterity.
I think a lot of people were in shock over the strikingly unpresidential tone Obama took in his defiant and demagogic State Of The Union address, and wanted to savor the Hammer’s delicious smackdown.. The won’s swipe at the Supreme Court had lasting ramifications, too, with Alito, and Roberts reportedly planning to sit the next one out.
Oh, and we can stop waiting for Obama to “pivot”, already. It. ain’t. gonna. happen.
Oh yes. Jason Levin was a big hit magnet, last Spring. What kind of person initiates a covert operation like Crash the Tea Party, by starting a website called “Crash the Tea Party” on the world wide web for everyone to see? Tea partiers were ready for Levin and his fellow moonbats, and their (unintentionally) comical efforts flopped big time, but that didn’t stop him from continuing his online buffoonery, as this story proves. At some point, I started to suspect that Levin was some kind of Republican plant, put out there to make lefties look ridiculous (as if they needed any help). But he lost his teaching job over the whole deal.
And the number one post at Nice Deb for the year of 2010:
1. Video: Patches Channels Matt Foley, Motivational Speaker
Last March, Patrick Kennedy made an incoherent and unhinged speech on the House floor. What’s newsworthy about a Kennedy making a fool of himself in public, you ask? Nothing really. But thousands of Americans who were watching that rant on the news, or on YouTube, were asking themselves, ” Who does he remind me of???…”
This video answered that question:
Incidentally, Patches leaving office, next week marks the first time in 63 years there won’t be a Kennedy serving in elected office in Washington.
All together now, “Awwwww!”
