As it's the end of the year, and it seems as though we're all supposed to look back fondly on stuff or something like that, we thought it appropriate to make a nice little list of some of our favorite of each others' posts from 2008.
Considering that this post will be the 4,556th one we've published, you can probably imagine how difficult a task this was for us. But these are some of the ones that stuck out in our minds…
MoveOn.org Needs to MoveOn.org Already
Booing John McCain: A Short Play
Gutsy Half-Hour Revolt Earns One Reporter Thirty Inane Seconds with Sarah Palin
G. Xavier Robillard
Expatriate Clinton Donor Expatriates Herself to John McCain
And we'd be remiss if we didn't also take note of our very early April endorsement of Alan Keyes for president.
See you all in 2009.

Third Party Candidates Treated Like Not-Serious Candidates Simply Because They Were Not Serious Candidates
The Baltimore sun did a little research into the amount of press given to Barack Obama and John McCain compared to that given to third party candidates Ralph Nader, Bob Barr, Cynthia McKinney and that other guy whatever his name is.
And their findings are quite interesting.
But, first, here's a cat on a Roomba…
Hahahahaha. That's so awesome. Go, cat, go!
Anyway, what were we talking about? Oh yeah…
Cats are funny.

One of the things I really like about the Daily Kos website is how thoughtful and even-handed the people in its community are. For example, take this refreshingly erudite critique on Ralph Nader's campaign left on the website over the weekend…
Anyone who sails with the Nader crowd deserves nothing more than ridicule.
Fuck Ralph Nader, and fuck his supporters. If the past eight years hasn't smacked any sense into their addled brains, then nothing will. This site caters to the reality-based community. No one else need apply.
Alright, I know what you're thinking. It's unfair of me to pick out a random comment and post it as though it represents the site as a whole or the site's founder, Markos Moulitsas. And you're right.
That's why I didn't do that. That was Markos Moulitsas.
That guy's gonna be some lucky president's chief of staff one day.

Ralph Nader Isn't Calling Barack Obama a Race Traitor, But He's Got a Cabin Down South to Rent You for the Summer, if You Know What Ralph Nader is Saying
Ralph Nader has a lot of good ideas. I wish that Ralph Nader was tall, handsome and, most importantly, not a crazy old douchebag.

With polls still open in half the country, Ralph Nader has already conceded the presidential race.
He's going to have egg on his face when he ends up winning California, Texas, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Nevada, Hawaii, Montana, Alaska, Idaho, Utah, Alaska, Missouri and Florida.
