Some of the awards are silly. PolitiFact has a lie of the year.
PolitiFact is a Pulitzer Prize-winning team that checks politicians' statements for lies.
I guess the people at Politifact, tired of shooting fish in barrels, went on to something easier.
This year's lie of the year was a claim by Democrats that Republicans voted to kill Medicare.
Haven't Democrats said that every year since the program began in 1966?
The real lie of the year came from whoever assured the Japanese people that those nuclear reactors in Fukushima could withstand any natural disaster.
A harder task for PolitiFact would be political true statement of the year.
There's your mission impossible.
Who wins is not always as important as who loses.
Even though he broke Eddie Robinson's record for wins this year, Joe Paterno is not going to win coach of the year, any more than Rod Blagojevich or John Edwards are going to win hair of the year.
Time magazine named the Protester the newsmaker of the year.
Given how lefty groups planned the Occupy Wall Street rallies, Daniel Flynn of Human Events declared it the Year of the Fauxtester.
Let's make Fauxtester the pun of the year.
For what it's worth, on my blog I named Navy SEAL Team 6 as the man of the year.
On that, we should all agree.
