Dec. 14, not Dec. 6. Showing, not snowing. Where are all the editors for The Stir? Not to mention most of these were just stupid things Republicans did this year. You didn't mention Obama's terrible performance at the first debate, or Joe Biden accusing Republicans of wanting to go back to the days of slavery, or Chris Matthews saying "I'm so glad we had that storm [Hurricane Sandy]." Come on. Maybe the right does a few more dumb things than the left, but at least be fair.

You forgot my very favorite "YOU DO NOT WANT A PRESIDENT WHO IS A LIAR, DO YOU" BILL CLINTON
