So, it's now pretty much officially the end of the year. Not only that, but it's also pretty much officially the end of the decade.
So, not only are people falling over themselves to write Top Ten lists about something or other, but they're falling over the already fallen selves of themselves to write Top Ten lists about something or other. And, let me tell you something. It is Top Ten listy out there. Wow! You cannot throw an Internet rock without hitting a Top Ten list.
So, in keeping with the zeitgeisty spirit of the times, I would humbly like to contribute the following list of Top 10 (At Least Vaguely) Political Top 10* Lists I Found in the Past 10 Minutes. I hope you like it; I put a lot of time into it…
My dream is that this Top 10 list will make it onto somebody's Top 10 list of Top 10 lists of Top 10 lists. Though, I'm sure the competition will be prohibitively stiff.
* Full disclosure. Not all of the Top 10 lists are Top 10 lists. Some are Top 15 lists or even Unnumbered lists. I am so sorry. So so very sorry.

So, Karl Rove's wife and Karl Rove are getting a divorce, which is sad. I guess. But also kind of good. Because people shouldn't be forced to live together in unhappy marriages, right? Especially not when one of those people is a sociopathic shell of a human being.
However, that's not the really sad part of this story…
Karl Rove, former senior adviser to President George W. Bush, has been granted a divorce in Texas after 24 years of marriage, family spokeswoman Dana Perino said.
"Karl Rove and his wife, Darby, were granted a divorce last week," said Perino. "The couple came to the decision mutually and amicably, and they maintain a close relationship and a strong friendship. There will be no further comment, and the family requests that its privacy be respected."
Huh? Dana Perino, the former White House Press Secretary is now the Rove House Press Secretary? Really? Is that really the best job she could get? Freelance spokespersoning for her old boss?
I realize that the job market is kind of shit out there right now, and that being Press Secretary doesn't provide you with the most useful skill set, but is this really the best job Perino could find? Surely, there must be some corporation out there with a need for a pretty amoral blond woman to stand in front of cameras and say recite made-up things.
Like, if she got a boob job and a collagen injection, I'm sure they'd hire her over at Fox News.

As Dennis reported earlier, yesterday afternoon president-elect Barack Obama paid a visit to the White House and met with ex-president-to-be George W. Bush.
Hours later a tantalizing leak emerged from the meeting: According to some loose-lipped sources, Obama nobly urged Bush to help the U.S. auto industry, and Bush was all, "Maaaaybe, if you stop gettin' in the way of my Colombia Free Trade Agreement, heh heh heh."
For today's indignant denials, let's turn to White House press secretary Dana Perino…
"They did speak about a range of issues, both domestic and international, and they did spend some time talking about the economy." she said. "But in no way did President Bush suggest that there was a quid pro quo when it came to Colombia free trade agreement or the other free trade agreements."
Mrs. Perino also played down rumors that Mr. Bush was angry over the leaks coming from the Obama transition team.
"I've also gotten several requests wanting to know if there is irritation at the White House towards the Obama team, and you're not going to hear that from me," Mrs. Perino said.
Of course not.
The White House already leaked it to Matt Drudge.

Here's a story that the Huffington Post seems to think is either interesting and/or news: According to White House press secretary Dana Perino, President George W. Bush might wait until tomorrow morning to find out the results of the Iowa caucuses.
And? Is that it? Because that's ridiculous. I know that bandwidth is cheap, but that tidbit hardly seems worth the price.
Seriously, what the fuck does Bush care who wins? The results of those caucuses probably affect him less than they affect any other person in the world. And since when is Dana Perino the authority on what the president watches on TV before he goes to bed? She didn't even know what the Cuban Missile Crisis was, so there're good odds that she's also confused about the Iowa caucuses, if not Iowa itself.
You have our word of honor that we will never report or comment on any news story of such trivial significance.
