To give our beloved staff a chance to celebrate the holidays, we are going to revisit the most popular videos of 2011. Some of them are golden oldies that you, our C&L readers, keep going back to, some are highlights from this year. What's clear is that there is little worry that C&L will suffer from content as we head full force into an election year.
We hope that you have a lovely holiday weekend, full of comfort and joy. And we'll start our recap with the 50th most popular video on the C&L archives.
This is fantastic entry from Heather, whom Amato fondly refers to as "The Machine" for her ability to stomach so many hours of broadcasts and make so many of the clips you'll see on this list.
Here's the thing all these tea party Republicans need to remember, we liberals know our stuff. You can yell and spout off your talking points, but we're gonna get you on the facts every time. Rep. Joe Walsh is a particularly disgusting Republican--a big bully, deadbeat dad and petulant drama queen--but he picked the wrong letter carrier to abuse at a town hall meeting. In a nice bit of comeuppance, Ed Schultz talked to that letter carrier, Melissa Rakestraw and she proved that we average Joes and Janes are far better than what passes for progressive pundits these days.
