Late Post Today:

The Rude Pundit's on his way to DC for a couple of reasons. He'll be in the streets during the inauguration orgy.

There's no real reason to post a photo of Tony Blair and George Bush just after Bush gave Blair the Medal of Freedom, other than that it's sort of like watching a rapist give an award for best rape assist to another rapist. And calling the award "The Grand and Glorious Trophy o' Love."

Back later with something. Fill your time with the only year in review that matters, the Buffalo Beast's "50 Most Loathsome People in America, 2008."

Tomorrow: The Rude Pundit's farewell to George W. Bush.
