As the clock ticks toward midnight, I thought I'd summarize some of my favorite political things from this last year.
First of all, I'll point out that - with an assist from Andrew Sullivan - this was the most popular post here at Smartypants in the last year. On a more serious note, the one that came in second is perhaps the one I'm most proud of.
Other than the election (which I'll say more about later), this has to be the moment that brought me the most joy.
I put some of my favorite photographs from the year in this video.
So many of those are fabulous. But my outright favorite has to be this one.
Finally...we did have an election. There were so many memorable moments in the lead-up to that fateful night. One of my favorites was "Please proceed, Governor." But if for no other reason than that the President seemed to enjoy it so much, this one rises to the top for me.
When it comes to "best post-election analysis," this one tops them all (if you don't have time to watch the whole thing, at least watch the first 2 minutes).
Goodbye 2012. Thanks for the memories.
