the bastard was getting ready to wind down 2005 when he noticed that left hand rob had posted a link to a column by my favorite batshit crazy new york times columnist, paul krugman, and it got me to thinking about his offer. you see rob and i are on opposite sides of the political spectrum but we have mutual agreement to not believe each other's sources. actually, it makes for a good deal. i dn't believe him and he doesn't believe me. but i also don't believe anything paul krugman says. i mean come on, he has his own crew of conservative "fans" who fact check his "lies" (and i put that in quotes because that's the fair thing to do) and report back to you on what he is or isn't telling you. anyway. rob and i are working out a deal where i am going to read a left wing blog for a week and he's going to read a right wing one and we're going to report on our mutual disbeief. we just haven't decided how to work that one out yet. anyway, until then, here's frontpage magazine's The Top 10 Stories (and Non-Stories) of 2005 to counter the krugman column. i would insert some manner of fair and balanced or we report you decide horsehit but, we should leave marketing to the marketers. enjoy. and happy new year lobster.
