The Champions Of 2008

More

Your pick for best Mental Health Break Of The Year: two dogs and a soldier.

The Malkin Award Winner for 2008: Ben Stein, writing in National Review.

The Moore Award Winner for 2008: P. Z. Myers, Pharyngula.

The Yglesias Award Winner for 2008: Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal.

The Poseur Of The Year is Alisa Shvarts, from perezhilton.com.

In a nail-biter, Victoria Jackson and Kim Crawford will just have to share the first ever - and highly coveted - Hewitt Award.

And the Von Hoffman Award nominee for 2008 goes to Bill Kristol for this fantastically wrong prediction.

Congrats to this year's winners. It was a very tough contest in every category (although weaker in the Moore area than for quite a time). The Crawford-Jackson slugfest went every round and was as brutal as the original Crawford-Davis one, if slightly less nicotiney in retrospect.

Meanwhile, vergessen Sie nicht the following Youtube that captures the real, epic, and eternal victory against Mordor that occurred in 2008. However bad it gets, we will always have Iowa.

God fuck you all.
