We didn't lose the game; we just ran out of time. - Vince Lombardi
Oh, The Humanity
On the heels of Hal’s post (see below) I’ve decided to add my own category: the Golden Drumstick awards. Why drumsticks? As any turkey eater knows, they are often the best part of the bird, especially with gravy. The Golden Drumstick is to be given to those individuals, places, or things that made the most positive contribution to society this year. Like the Golden Turkey, it doesn’t have to be political.
Arnold Schwarzenegger He’s made mistakes, but he’s stood his ground and is that rare breed-an independent Republican and a Republican incumbent who’s actually popular.
Ron Paul Love him or hate him, you can’t ignore him. He has shaken up the GOP race to the point where Bush Republicans wish he would go away, while actual, conservative Republicans are asking, “Why aren’t any of the other candidates saying at least some of what he says?”
Barack Obama The silver-tongued Senator from Illinois represents the first real generational battle we have seen in politics in a long time. And he has a sincerity factor, whether real or not, that Hillary could never match.
General Petraeus The thinking man’s general seems to have turned Iraq around with his surge strategy and with some out-of-the-box thinking. You know things are getting better in Iraq when the MSM won’t talk about it.
King Juan Carlos of Spain Finally, a leader who had the guts to say to Hugo Chavez what many of us have been wanting to say for a long time. Gracias, your Majesty.
Burma’s Monks I don’t think there’s any explanation needed here.
Anyway, those are a few of mine. Feel free to add yours, and make sure you take home lots of leftovers.
