Open thread: New Year’s Eve!

posted at 7:30 pm on December 31, 2007 by Allahpundit

I’m around but busy with non-blog work, so if you’re snowed in or just too beta a beta male to scare up last-minute plans, feel free to sound off about resolutions, TV recommendations, whatever. The Fox News NYE special starts at 11 ET. Will Megyn Kelly follow her “all miniskirts, all the time” rule even in the chill of Times Square? Keep hope alive, my friends.

The last Des Moines Register poll is due out sometime this evening; check in if you’re eager for the CW going into Thursday. In the meantime, for your drunken amusement: Netdisaster. I recommend this configuration. Or, if you want something a little meatier, spend five minutes on this. Obeying the dictates of Shia Islam’s supreme religious authority versus keeping your graft gravy train running? Perhaps we and the Iranians aren’t so different after all.

yes, somthing I learned from my old man years ago.

Harmony is more important than pride.

Your old man was smart. Cheers, pal.

Just finished up watching the Jason Bourne trilogy for entertainment. Enduring the last few minutes of Greta before the FNC coverage kicks in. Will go out at midnight to watch the fireworks over the Mississippi here in New Orleans (I live directly across the river from downtown).

Happy 2008 to all and the best of wishes.

Yes, As they say, you can be happy or right. You choose wisely.

sunny on December 31, 2007 at 11:00 PM

Happy New Year, Hot Heads!

On TV now: Clarence Thomas and John Bolton. Is it warm in here or is it just me? :-)

baldilocks on December 31, 2007 at 11:08 PM

It was a very mutual decision over 24 and a half years ago. Wow! Its been a hell of a ride!

SouthernPride on December 31, 2007 at 11:10 PM

Before I get too snookered as well, my NUMBER ONE Wish is for all of our troops world-wide to have a VERY HAPPY 2008!!!

Return home safe and sound to your families, very soon. We love you all and THANK YOU for all you do!!

SouthernPride on December 31, 2007 at 11:13 PM

Amen

sunny on December 31, 2007 at 11:14 PM

Impossible to argue with that!

Unless, of course, you are Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi or any other Democrat that wishes ill on our troops.

I say Amen to your thoughts and hoping that these traitors get their drubbing in the 2008 elections.

So, So true.
Sooooo….my idea is to keep those a-holes out of tonights New Year’s posts and let our Troops read messages from those of us who love and appreciate them, their jobs and what they stand for!!!!!!!!

SouthernPride on December 31, 2007 at 11:30 PM

2007 has ended on some GREAT notes!

1. Raleigh and surrounding areas got copious amounts of rain, extended our water supply by another month!!

2. Another democrat in the NC House has been indicted!

3. Clemson loses bowl game! WOOHOO!

Happy 2008 to y’all! May all your dreams come true (as corny as that sounds!)!! And go Rudy!

SouthernGent on December 31, 2007 at 11:39 PM

Don’t know about you, but 2007 totally sucked the wazoo for me. Glad to see it go.

Good point! A very good point!!!

The more we marginalize these anti-war bastards the better.

To all my friends serving in Iraq and Afghaistan, Happy New Year. I wish you nothing but the best. Thank you for your service and rest assured that those of us back here have your backs.

highhopes on December 31, 2007 at 11:58 PM

Happy New Years all! Managed a few minutes away from a sick grandson to watch Dick Clark (God bless him!) and the ball drop. Fireworks going off a couple blocks from my house – first time for that in my small city.

Y2K seems like yesterday. Time flies.

Oh Lord. Conservnut and myself definitely understand. Our son was very sick for ages 2-4. Whether it was infections requiring hospital stays or eye problems needing surgeries, it was soooo very traumatic for us. We undertand and our prayers are with you, Mom & Dad and the grandbaby. God Bless!

Keep hopes up! Our precious son is about to join the Navy!

May 2008 be a happy one for 99.9% of us at the beginning of Nov. It’s going to be a long and hard political year.
