End of the year awards!

Two of my favorite blogs have end-of-the-year awards. Andrew Sullivan runs a series of awards through the year, mostly about pundits and politicians mouthing off about something ridiculous, although his Yglesias Award goes to people who challenge the ideas of their own party/ideology. Last year, Talking Points Memo created the Golden Dukes, recognizing the egregiously stupid and venal in politics. Elizabeth Dole won, for example, for Sleaziest Campaign Ad. I will not miss her. Best Election Season Fib is Sarah Palin and the Bridge to Nowhere.

Congrats to all!
