Like sending a fat, unloved child off to summer camp, today we wave goodbye to the 2008 campaign season, the tears conspicuous by their absence in our eyes. And judging by the tone of some of the comments we've been getting around here ("Fuck you guys!") it's not a moment too soon. America and the world are pretty much politiced-out.
We did have some fun though, didn't we? From the insane amount of Ron Paul insanity on Digg, to the carefree misogyny of the Democratic primaries, to our own Dan O'Brien's quixotic attempts to fingerbang a certain Vice Presidential nominee, there were a lot of good memories this past year, intermixed amongst the thousands of tedious, unpleasant memories. Reflecting my sentimental and hopelessly romantic nature, this whole time I've been keeping a scrapbook of these fun times. I present to you below a small sample.
