Hot Air’s Top 40 for 2012: 31-40

posted at 7:01 pm on December 29, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Every year at this time, we like to look back at our most-read posts and take a trip down Memory Lane.  Which topics got the most traction?  What really burned up the wires?  As one might imagine, the top 40 posts in terms of traffic include a number of election topics, but it wasn’t just the election that kept Hot Air readers riveted in 2012.  We’ll take a look over the next few days at the top 40 most-viewed posts, starting with slots 40-31 today:

More tomorrow!

Avalanche of sexist comments in 3…2…1…

red_herring on December 29, 2012 at 7:04 PM

#1: Obooba reelected.

Akzed on December 29, 2012 at 7:05 PM

what the fluke exactly is a sexist comment?

Slade73 on December 29, 2012 at 7:06 PM

Please desist from running Ms. Fluke’s photo.

Mason on December 29, 2012 at 7:06 PM

Ahh Fluke it. I haven’t even had dinner yet. Thanks a lot.

CW on December 29, 2012 at 7:07 PM

Sandra’s a flukeing slut.

that’s not sexist, that’s just true

Slade73 on December 29, 2012 at 7:08 PM

Cliff hanger posts? Really? :-s

Valkyriepundit on December 29, 2012 at 7:10 PM

where’s the “Obama’s a half white Kenyan Indonesian Asian Hawaiian dog eater” post?

Slade73 on December 29, 2012 at 7:12 PM

Friggin’ Tease!!

Tim_CA on December 29, 2012 at 7:18 PM

I never saw the 80 mph video, somehow I missed that treasure. I want to know who she voted for. Any guesses?

msmveritas on December 29, 2012 at 7:19 PM

#37. this is how luciferian the enemy is in the USA. there is absolutely nothing they would not lie about to further their idiotic and destructive agenda.

tom daschle concerned on December 29, 2012 at 7:25 PM

Is this the place to list the most pitiful and outrageous leftist puke troll comments? Hope so, cause this would be my pick.

Go find a ditch to die in.

More credit than due?

Bmore on December 29, 2012 at 7:28 PM

So, we’ll have to count the number of comments. At the risk of sounding like one of the low-info Bamavoters, can you put the comment number with them?

msmveritas on December 29, 2012 at 7:19 PM

I hadn’t seen it either. Several years ago I drove a school bus in Olathe, KS. A driver was stuck in stop and go traffic on I-35. She radioed in to let the dispatcher know she was going to be late in case the school called. She said, “I’m only going about a mile a minute.”

davidk on December 29, 2012 at 7:39 PM

That does it! Third time today I’ve seen a picture of the Georgetown whore as somehow being relevant in life let alone 2012. She’s a shill for the left that by her own admission blows through $1000 of contraception in any given year. I’m so tired of seeing this slut who has no value to society, contributes nothing, and is the ultimate epitome of an Obama supporter. All taker and mooch who could disappear tommorrow and it wouldn’t make a bit of difference. She’s no hero. Just a slut with 15 minutes of fame.

Happy Nomad on December 29, 2012 at 7:45 PM

Sandra Fluke

Um, the scary bird attacks thread is like 1 block South of here.

When it comes to the “Ultimate Goal”, there is NO lie too outrageous, and NO action too heinous. The ends justifies the means, PERIOD.

You know, that’s an excellent idea. There have been oh so many despicable troll comments, surely one of them should be declared worthy of being a “winner”.

scalleywag on December 29, 2012 at 8:14 PM

I don’t care…

Obama is Awesome!

It’s a must-see.

And Tootsie makes it in to the top 40 by a whisker…above its lip.

fitzfong on December 29, 2012 at 8:21 PM

Where has Sandra Fluke been lately, anyway? Has the president given her a post yet in return for all her support? Someone has to be in charge of distributing all that free contraception we’ll be giving out, it may as well be her.

scalleywag on December 29, 2012 at 8:24 PM

lostmotherland, no worries. I have a good shovel.

Bmore on December 29, 2012 at 8:26 PM

Of course per your wish. It will be shallow.

Bmore on December 29, 2012 at 8:27 PM

lostmotherland isn’t so much a troll as our retarded sibling we keep chained up and feed Baby Ruths

Slade73 on December 29, 2012 at 8:28 PM

#40 – The testimony made Sandra Fluke a star, at least for this election cycle.

No, Rush Limbaugh’s attempt to slut-shame Ms. Fluke is what put her on the national stage.

Sheesh, you’re not even trying, are you Ed?

Actually it is BOOOSH’s fault.

Go back a little further..

Nasty Pelosi pulled a fast one and had Fluck spew in front of a fake forum.

Electrongod on December 29, 2012 at 8:38 PM

For lost and chump. Remember the line starts to my left. ; )

lost and chump, just in case you two aren’t on mobile devices. The line still starts on my left. ; )

Bmore on December 29, 2012 at 9:21 PM

Why someone that looks like Fluke would be concerned about having her birth control paid for I will never understand. Reminds me of some of nerdy unlucky with the ladies guys I knew back in the day that would buy a huge box of condoms…it was laughable as they would be lucky to ever use one let alone a whole box! Hell, they probably still haven’t opened the box!

Seriously, Fluke is so damn homely there isn’t enough beer in the world for the beer goggles it would take to lay down with her!

Liberty or Death on December 29, 2012 at 9:26 PM

Fluke should buy Rush a box of his favorite cigars every month for the next year for making her famous.

Big Orange on December 29, 2012 at 9:42 PM

Heh. Sums it up.

davidk on December 29, 2012 at 10:10 PM

One would think that Fluke’s mustache would be all the birth control she would ever need.

justltl on December 29, 2012 at 11:07 PM

So, who’s the dude in the photo — and of what relevance is he to the topic at hand, Ed?

Kenosha Kid on December 30, 2012 at 12:18 AM

The only bright spot in all of this is the surety of knowing that one day, Sandra Fluke will be nothing more than one of the answers to a Politics in 2012 question in some future edition of Trivial Pursuit.

pilamaye on December 30, 2012 at 7:30 AM

Good idea in theory, but I don’t think any trolls ever get banned. At least not since CFA Appreciation Day.
