What's that? It's a year-in-review cartoon. It's one of the many year-in-review pieces that went up over the weekend:
Kat's "Kat's Korner: 2010 in music" Ruth's "Ruth's Radio Report: 2010," Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "2010: The Urkel Moment," "2010 in books (Martha & Shirley)," "2010: The Year of Enough," Marcia's "2010 in Page Turners" and Rebecca's "2010 in page turners" and Ann's "10 Best DVDs of 2010" and Stan's "10 Best DVDs of 2010" -- year in review pieces in the community. Also "Terry Gross' new low (Ann, Ava and C.I.)" which documents the fact that women made up only 18% of Terry Gross' guests on Fresh Air in 2010. In addition Kat got in one more review for 2010, "Kat's Korner: Mystic Melanie" -- Kat reviews Melanie's brand new album Ever Since You Never Heard of Me.
We're swiping that from C.I. And now this is from Hillary is 44's "Hope And Change 2011:"
As Americans fly through the air after another year of an “economic recovery” without jobs we’ll hope to hit the garbage bags for a softer landing that will leave us only bleeding and hospitalized.
The shiny garbage bags will be better than being beaten with golf clubs. In two years we have seen enough of the golf clubs (already more than twice as George W. in all his 8 years). Mark Knoller has the other numbers detailing all the piles of words, the many trips, the vacations, the basketball, the unemployment rates and the mounting debt.
It’s our first post of the new year so we want to be hopeful and optimistic and full of good cheer. But we have to be honest – those attributes are in short supply for this year. So we’ll stick with reality and the hard times ahead.
We know the stink came from both sides of Pennsylvania Avenue in 2010 and 2009. We know that the best we can expect in 2011 is a bit of stink covering perfume from the Capitol to combat the stink from 1600 Pennsylvania. But we will remain hopeful that the promises of the 2010 elections are kept.
Our sad message for 2011 is – avoid the golf clubs and aim for the garbage bags.So what do you think? It's 2011. The presidential election is 2012. Is he going to get four more years? I hope now. And I hope he realizes it and announces he's not running for re-election so someone else can run. I think if he tries to run he's going to lose.
A lot could change between now and 2012. But the fact of the matter is he only won because of the press hype and people not knowing him. Now they know him and the press hype's gotten old. I don't see him getting re-elected.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
