I think Rachel should've been on there somewhere, but that's just me.

They probably thought it would be seen as self-serving. But, yeah, Rachel was a big story -- at least a big media story -- in '08!

Letterman's obsession w/ the size of KO's head showed up again in last night's Top 10 list* at #7.

The Bush shoe attack got a reference, too, at #2:

"It's so cold, Iraqis are throwing snowshoes at President Bush."

:LMAO

Wasn't that a wonderful show?? A very entertaining wrap-up to one hell of a political year. I watched it once, then taped it later for absent friends.

Excellent show. Loved to watch those (not so old) clips again.

During the recap of SNL clips, they interspersed with clips of the real folks, and I swear, you could not tell the difference. Which means, SNL got it absolutely right, and the real folks ought to be ashamed of themselves. Except it was nice to have comedy coming from real life.
