As we ring out 2007, and ring in 2008, our bloggers are looking back on the year that was (goodbye "wide stance," bald Britney, juiced up ballplayers, Melamine-tainted pet food, recalled toys, heavily-armed school shooters, Karl Rove's historical revisionism, Miss Teen USA's views on education ("like such as..."), Bill Clinton's fears of "rolling the dice," Don Imus apologizing, Michael Vick apologizing, David Vitter apologizing, Marie Osmond dancing, Lindsay Lohan rehabbing, Alberto Gonzales testi-lying, Blackwater thugs, and fired US Attorneys) and looking ahead at the year to come (hello primaries, conventions, November 4, and the end of the Bush presidency), as well as offering up their New Year's resolutions. Here are a few of mine:
To cut back on my Blackberry use, from having three with me at all times to only two (I tried this earlier this year, but this time I mean it!).
To resist the overpowering urge to bang my head against the wall the next time Democrats cave in to Bush -- as they can't seem to stop doing.
To find a love as powerful and pure as the one between Rudy and Judi Giuliani (ie someone willing to take my cell phone calls during important speeches and provide me with a police escort, even if it means billing obscure city departments).
To laugh as hard as Hillary, party as hard as Bill, and relax as hard as Fred Thompson.
Okay, HuffPosters, now it's your turn. Use the comments section below to tell us: What are your resolutions for 2008? What stories or people from 2007 would you just as soon never think of again? What are your picks for the year's best movies, TV shows, books, or news stories? What about the year's worst? And what are your predictions for the coming year (we'll check back next year and see how many came true).
In the meantime, here's wishing you a Happy New Year. May your 2008 be filled with love, laughter, and lots of blogging, blog reading, and blog commenting. And so that you don't forget why we must have real change next year, take a look at our three Bush Years posters (and click here to order yours).
