In at least one obvious way, 2008 was a pretty good year in my country. We made history in electing an African-American president.
I and 67-million of my fellow citizens brought the era of conservative dominance to a thundering close.
But ill winds still blew, and blow, across the republic. It being the duty of journalism to take the measure of these winds, I hereby dedicate my year-end column to ranking some of the worst Americans of the year. It started as a bottom 10 list, but consultations with various associates persuaded me that 10 was not enough, and further research suggested that a non-round and totally capricious number better suited the exercise. Herewith, the Tomasky List of the 19 Worst Americans of 2008.
Well, here’s to a better 2009, for America, the world, and you and yours. And keep yer nose clean. - guardian.co.uk
