At the end of last year, we took a look at our top posts of the year as part of a retrospective that our readers seemed to enjoy.  Let’s take a tour of the top 50 Hot Air posts of 2011 with the most unique page views, starting with slots 41-50.  The list was generated by Hot Air’s technical gurus late last week, so it won’t include anything from this week — and that may be part of the fun, since this is a good way to revisit some of our most-read posts that may have fallen out of memory.  I’m excluding holiday posts, since those work as open threads and have a bit of an unfair advantage.  That actually only disqualifies our Thanksgiving post on the greatest moment in sitcom history, which turned out to be the overwhelming favorite of most readers.
