10 Things I Hate About the Year in Review
Show Notes

New year, new theme music, new BST!

We've got a couple 2020 in review pieces that suggest maybe the hell year we're all traumatized from wasn't so bad after all. 

We start off with Never Trumper-turned-Trumper Hugh Hewitt's piece in the Washington Post, which contends that, sure, there was the whole pandemic thing, but there were also some bright spots, such as the amazing work Trump has done combatting the virus. We challenge you to name a U.S. president who has handled COVID-19 better.

Next, we go for some Canadian content from washed up Liberal partisan hack turned Conservative hack Warren Kinsella, who gives us his 10 winners and losers from the year that was. To give a preview of the list's coherence, his top 3 were the country's premiers, Doug Ford (a premier) and Brian Pallister (a premier).
