For the first time since 1989, the losing presidential candidate will not be attending the inauguration.
History notes that Michael Dukakis ate a tuna sandwich and watched the '89 proceedings on television, most likely dressed in an oversized tank gunner's helmet.
We don't know how Mitt Romney is spending his time today, but we do know that he has gone plenty of places in the past few months–places that are, apparently, more important than the events in Washington.

Hello and welcome to our very last post of 2012. Thanks for reading, commenting, following us on Twitter, liking us on Facebook and following us on Tumblr. What better way to review the year that's almost past than with an exclusive interview?
Indecision: Hi, 2012. Thanks for talking with us.
2012: [stares, dazedly]
Indecision: It's okay. You've been through a lot.
2012: I'm so tired. I'm just so tired.

In a year marked by giant egos striding across the national stage, one man stood out for not standing out at all, if he even showed up in the first place. His family was subjected to the sort of scrutiny that only befalls presidential candidates and Lindsay Lohan, yet he remained a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in shiny teeth. For that, Ben Romney, you are Comedy Central's Indecision's Person of the Year.
What more can we say about this majestic, unknowable creature?

If you thought Sarah Palin peaked in 2008, you haven't been paying attention to her in 2012 (not that we blame you). So we're pleased to present an exclusive analysis we're calling The Worst Sarah Palin Moments of 2012 (So Far).
8. Palin calls Time magazine irrelevant for naming President Obama its Person of the Year, when really it's irrelevant for still trying to be in the print media.
7. In response to the mass shooting in Newtown, Palin sums up this horrific tragedy with a Cee Lo song and a crappy joke about the president.
6. Palin's son Trog (or something) gets a divorce after 18 months of marriage, and his family-values-having mom has no comment, because… family values.
