We’re getting to the heart of the 50 most-viewed posts at Hot Air in 2013, and it’s a great mix of stories. We have a very bad day for John Kerry, a question of biblical scholarship that for once doesn’t involve MSNBC, and a very bad day for burglars who hit the wrong house. We also have two different cases of terrorism and a splendid demonstration of the filibuster in action. Enjoy!

Tomorrow we’ll crack the Top 20, and we’ll start working on a reader poll of the top stories of 2013, too! We’ll set that up to deliver the results on New Years Day. Be sure to list your nominees in the Green Room post above!
