Atrocious! Progressives In 2010
2010. I remember when I was growing up how 2010 sounded so futuristic. And now it’s come and gone. As a kid, I used to think that by the year 2010 we’d have flying cars and that everything would be so space-age. What do we have to show for 2010? The iPad. The Chevy Volt. Those little gel toilet dots that supposedly keep you from having to clean the toilet as often. So much for a wide-open future of technological innovation.
At the same time, during my politically precocious childhood, I was captivated by the seemingly limitless optimism of the Reagan era. I thought there was nothing we couldn’t do as a nation, and I truly believed that we wouldn’t again see anything like the Carter years. I didn’t know how to define it at the time, but I was convinced that what I now know as the Left was defeated.
Little did I know that, all these years later, progressives would be more galvanized and stubborn than at any other era of history. And just when you think they couldn’t get more outrageous, the Left continues to surprise, amuse, and anger much of the American populace, often achieving all three at the same time.
Whether they’re turning a scandal into a circus, passing unpopular legislation, whitewashing their own or someone else’s history, living it up on the taxpayers’ dime, or revealing their own ignorance and insanity, Leftists engage in more ridiculous behavior than ever before. It’s hard to believe their constituents continue to let them get away with it, but they do.
This past year was a banner year for Leftist atrociousness, and before we consign 2010 to the dustbin of history, here’s a special year-end look at ten of the Left’s most ridiculous moments of the year. These moments are guaranteed to make you laugh uproariously or grumble in anger — or both. Regardless of your reaction, I’m certain you won’t soon forget these episodes.
