Maureen Dowd, who writes a column in the New York Times let her conservative brother Kevin provide his views for the Christmas column.
Here are some of his observations about 2009. Just a list of Republican talking points and little else. This is a good example why Republicans deserve to lose in 2010, again. Anyone who thinks that Beck is a journalist or that Cheney is a patriot needs to have his head examined.
