Hot Air’s top 50 posts in 2010: 21-30

posted at 3:00 pm on December 29, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

We return once again to the most-trafficked posts at Hot Air this year, courtesy of the web wizards and tech geeks who dove into the numbers to determine the most-viewed articles.  On Monday we listed 41-50, and yesterday 31-40. Today has plenty of recognizable controversies, including the Arizona lawsuit and the Ground Zero mosque, plus forgotten episodes like Tim Tebow’s supposed endorsement of domestic violence.  What wasn’t news?  Well, the fact that I couldn’t make a good Super Bowl prediction …

# #28: Chris Christie to teacher: If you don’t like my education budget, find a new job – And some in the audience applauded. It’s progress!

One of my personal favorites.

I hope Greg Gutfeld gets a prime time slot on Fox someday.

50sGuy on December 29, 2010 at 3:05 PM

I’m guessing we must be getting close to the “Palin zone…”

I’s settle for Red Eye being on at 11 or midnight.

Cindy Munford on December 29, 2010 at 3:10 PM

C’mon, Ed. Hurry up and get to 1-20 so all the Palin fanbois can celebrate the Divine Sarah’s inevitable bloggy triumph over all mere mortals!

#21: Greg Gutfeld: I’m raising money to build a Muslim gay bar next to the Ground Zero mosque –

I had way to much fun with this one!

You two talk about Palin more than Gary & Jenfidel.

That’s scary.

50sGuy on December 29, 2010 at 3:05 PM

..to the Gen-X crowd and later generations, 0100 is a prime slot. It’s only us codgers who have just come back from the “early bird” restaurant specials and 1630 that think BO’REilly and Hannity are prime slots. Hell, I’m so old, Greta Van Sustern is late-night to me.

The War Planner on December 29, 2010 at 3:23 PM

and at 1630

..FIFMyself.

I am a long time Portlandon supporter. However, while I really,really,really like Portlandon, I do not think he understands the dynamics of blog commenting. I don’t think that Port is intellectually dishonest. If Portlandon were to study up on Blog principles, and speak out about Palinista issues I think he could be taken seriously by 2016.

At this point, Portlandon has become a clown.

Did Portlandon quit commenting halfway through his term?

Quitter!

MrScribbler on December 29, 2010 at 3:39 PM

Knucklehead on December 29, 2010 at 3:37 PM

You complain about the Palinistas jumping on everyone in this thread, yet you 2 jokers are usually the first ones to mention her name.

Check for yourself Knuckehead. Who was the first 2 people to mention Palin in this thread?

The Pre-emptive Palin Martyrs.

portlandon on December 29, 2010 at 3:40 PM

We record Red Eye every night on DVR and watch it with our morning coffee….. great way to start the day. If he/they were on earlier I’m afraid the censors would overheat from all the bleeping.

umm this Gen XYer gets up at 4 and goes to bed at a freaking 9 (thought sometimes later due to work) usually. Don’t judge a book, young man!

upinak on December 29, 2010 at 3:43 PM

That Chris Christie video should be required viewing for all (new) teachers. Ideally in all states, but I’d settle for just New Jersey.

If you don’t think that Scribbler’s comment was funny, then you have a serious problem. I used to have a lot of respect for you and always looked forward to reading what you had to say.

Sadly, not anymore.

I couldn’t sleep in Alaska. I need it to be completely Dark. How do people handle it? Just get used to it?

You had better unsubscribe to my fan club. I’ll give you your money back. =(

portlandon on December 29, 2010 at 3:50 PM

For me, #21 and #28 are tied!!!

#21: Who can’t love Christie telling the educational establishment to stick it??

#28: I love a story where a parody of Liberalism (the Ground Zero Gay Bar), is taken seriously and subsequently attacked by Liberals!!! It’s even better that the parody is constructed out of Liberal icons!!!

I got into your fan club during the Free Trial Offer open enrollment period.

Think I’ll stay in until you send me a bill. After that, fuggedaboutit.

Does this have your immortal deuts with Moo-chelle? The soundtrack from the “Cee-Lo Meets Portlandon” video?

I’m so there!

LOL!!

It also has a cameo appearance of Captain & Tennille doing their cover version of California Love.

I’d love to see Gutfeld in a gay bar. He’s hot.

I can handle Hawkdriver. Besides, he’s off making himself irrelevant volunteering for a fringe third party.

American Elephant on December 29, 2010 at 4:52 PM

I was a big fan of #27. It had that “Guam tipping” vibe.
