Readers Choice of My Top Fifteen Posts (on The Lid) For 2010


Since it the end of the year many of my favorite bloggers are making their choice of their favorite posts of the year. For example John Hawkins posted The 15 Most Popular Political Posts On Linkiest For 2010 and The 20 Most Popular Non-Political Links On Linkiest For 2010 this morning. As I will be heading out for a few days of family fun tomorrow afternoon, between tomorrow and new years I will be rerunning some of my favorite posts of the last twelve months.:  But before then I thought it might be fun to see what your favorite posts of the year.

The posts listed below are the ones that were read by the most people between January 1, 2010 and today.:  Some of them were published on this site before they appeared anywhere else in the blog world or the main stream media (like the Helen Thomas and the General Jones and The League of Women Voters ACORN posts) others were the product of original research such as the Union Pension Plan article,:  and some were written just because I hate bullies like when Bob Beckel was fresh nasty and condescending to my friend Pamela Geller. Then there were the satires like the Dead Potomac River Scrolls,:  All of the posts were written with the purpose of sharing with you the news that you wont find elsewhere or a unique perspective.

The post you read the most was viewed by over 47,000 people (thanks to being linked by Allahpundit of Hot Air):  and your 15th favorite post was read by 7,000.:  The list is below and they are all hot-linked just in case you missed them the first time around.
