We’re coming up to the end of 2013, and one of our annual traditions at Hot Air is to take a look at the year’s most popular posts as we close it out.  We’ve compiled the top 50 most viewed posts for the year, and we’ll do a countdown in reverse order.  Assuming I’ve counted the days correctly, we’ll wrap up on New Years Eve with the top 10 posts of the year.
