As 2009 comes to a close, it’s time for the first annual “Best Of” series at The Conservative Journal!  2009 has been quite a year, so what better a way to close it out than to reflect on the best (and worst) of what we’ve seen over the past 365 days.  Here are the details:

With the exception of a few categories (Most Popular Posts, Top Referrers, etc.), all of the Best of/Worst of are chosen by you.  Votes will be cast by entering your choice in the “Other” blank in the appropriate poll.  This is the easiest way to gather votes easily and accurately.  For the slower readers, there will be an example provided before each poll to ensure you vote in the proper manner.  You may vote for each category once a day, and you don’t have to vote in every category.  Details on what’s eligible for each category will be listed before each poll.  Here are the categories you will be deciding:

  • Top 10 Best/Worst Songs of 2009
  • Top 10 Best/Worst Albums of 2009
  • Top 10 Best/Worst Books of 2009
  • Top 10 Best/Worst Singers of 2009 (Including Male, Female, and Overall)
  • Top 10 Best/Worst Movies of 2009
  • Top 10 Best/Worst TV Shows of 2009
  • Top 10 Best/Worst Websites or Blogs of 2009

  • Top 10 Best/Worst People of 2009
  • Top 10 Best/Worst Politicians of 2009
  • Top 10 Best/Worst Events of 2009

Voting starts as soon as the categories are posted and ends December 31st at 11:59 PM.  Results will be posted by Midnight on January 2nd.  If you have any suggestions for additional categories, be sure to let me know!

After the poll for each category is posted, they will obviously be burried beneath pages of polls.  To view a complete list of categories including links to each category’s poll, visit the “Best of 2009” page by clicking the on the Hall of Fame page, or by clicking here.

The Top 10 Worst People of the Week: Adam Lambert, Oprah, Jon Gosselin, and CBS

This is something new I’m going to start doing with the help of my new writers.  The title is pretty self-explanatory, we’ll just go through and name the top 10 worst people of the week and a little bit about why.  This post will probably be posted on Saturdays, but seeing as this is Thanksgiving week and I’ll be busy Saturday, we’ll go ahead and do it tonight.

10. CBS- After CBS jumped at the opportunity to book Adam Lambert and be the shelter for the “kicked puppy”, they blurred out the Lamber/Male keyboarder kiss, while not blurring out the Madonna/Britney kiss that was shown in the same slide set.  I’m glad they blurred out the Lambert/Keyboarder kiss, but they should have been consistent and blurred both.  Watch out folks, hypocrisy earns you a spot on my list.

9. Google- Go back in time a week, google image search Michelle Obama.  What pops up?  A monkey.  True story.  Google lands on the list because they removed the photo and the website from their searches.  Don’t get me wrong, I find blatant racial attacks to be despicable and unwarranted in today’s society, but come on Google.  There are MILLIONS of offensive images on the internet, why try and play police with this one?  That image has been circulated to millions of American’s by now, and this all making much ado about nothing.  Everyone needs to quit being so dang sensitive.

8. Oprah Winfrey- Oprah started off great by announcing she was ending her tv show……… then she continued by saying it wouldn’t be over until 2011.  Geez Oprah, you got me all excited.

7. “President or Jihad” Billboard guy- Come on man, have some sense!  Sure I’d love for B.O. to show us the birth certificate, but really?  I’m not a member of the “AHH! HATE CRIME” group, I just think it’s ignorant.  I must say, it gave me a HUGE laugh when I first saw it though.  For those who missed this story, read it here.

6. Climatologists dismissing the e-mails- No one can take responsibility for their actions anymore.  3 of the climatologists who were a part of the global warming e-mail scandal last week came out today saying that it was nothing but a smear campaign.  When did “smear campaign” become the word of choice when trying to dodge a sticky situation?

5. Perez Hilton- The fact that I can’t stand him aside, Perez really aggravated me on the AMA’s.  They gave him 10 seconds of screen time and he used it to say “I caught up with Derek Hough….. in the bathroom”.  Perez has a chronic case of pedestalitus; he can say whatever he wants, but the second anyone else steps up, cue the tears and Vlog.

4. Jon Gosselin- He’s just a bully.  His latest episode includes being a bully to his twins for preferring their mom over him.  The two twins said they enjoyed being with their mom more, so Jon through them inside and wouldn’t let the poor girls sell lemonade.  I think he’s just bitter that his 15 minutes are officially ovahhhh.

3. WikiLeaks- I’ve never heard of this website until today, but apparently they’ve discovered thousands of 9/11 texts and have released them to the internet.  Why stir up memories with these messages, some of which were extremely personal and heartbreaking?

2. Keith Olbermann- Uhhhh…. He’s just annoying.

1. Adam Lambert- I’ve never seen anyone more desperate for publicity in my life.  I could tolerate him on Idol, but he took it too far at the AMA’s and continues to take it too far as he does interviews throughout the week.  Adam, you may not be “a babysitter”, but that doesn’t mean it’s fair game for you to force simulated oral sex on some back-up dancer in front of 15 million people.  You may think the the world is carrying out one big hate crime and discriminating against you, but I was just as appalled when Britney kissed Madonna.  Save it for pay-per-view, not a show with a rating of TV-14.

Who do you think is the worst person above?  Leave your comments below or send an e-mail to theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Don’t forget to bookmark The Conservative Journal and sign up for the RSS Feed and the daily e-mail newsletter.

Song of the Day: “Speechless” by Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga’s latest studio album, The Fame Monster, features the surprisingly normal ballady song, “Speechless”.  She performed this song on the AMA’s and I was highly impressed.  So when I reader tipped me off to the studio version, I was sold.  Here’s the full length song, courtesy of the marvelous YouTube:

The Conservative Journal Family Just Got a Little Bigger

A few weeks ago, I sent out an “SOS” asking anyone who was interested in helping me handle this blog to please come forth, take the virtual blogging pen, and write to their heart’s content.  But with no real incentive, who’s gonna do that?  I still blog here because it’s like a child to me; I grew it from a lowly WordPress blog with one post into a lowly WordPress blog with a lot of posts.  So after I posted that plea, I realized it was probably in vain.  However, to my surprise a couple of interesting responsive.  One went a little too far and wanted me to give them blog, which I wasn’t ready for.  But a few others actually wanted to write and help out, and I can’t thank them enough.  So without further ado, here’s a quick overview of the 3 who will be joining me on this blogging adventure:

Michael: College student by day, Conservative Journal writer by night.

Suzannah: You can call her “Mama Suze.” (Pronounced Sooooze)

Angelica: Don’t mess with her.

More on all 3 of the wonderful people when they give me their bios, but here are some more details on how this will work:

  • We’re not really sure how much or what each will be posting, and it probably won’t be all ironed until 2010.  Until then, they will be giving their opinions when we do reviews and stuff.  That’ll be a good way for everyone to get to know them before they start doing independent posts.
  • As I said above, everything won’t be 100% until early 2010.  Until then, posts will continue to say “posted by: Rick” regardless of who wrote it.  If the author is different there will be a note of that.  When everything is together, Michael, Suzannah, and Angelica will all have their own accounts that they can use to post whatever.

I’m looking forward to what’s ahead, and I hope you’re patient with us as we work all of the details out.  If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment or send us an e-mail.

Song of the Day: “Temporary Home” by Carrie Underwood (Review)

EDIT: A full review of Play On is right around the corner, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

The second single off of Carrie Underwood’s phenomenal 3rd album, Play On, is this stirring number titled “Temporary Home.”  The song tells the story of 3 individuals, a foster-child, a single mom in a halfway house, and an old man on his death bed, who are experiencing hardship but realize that their current situation is only temporary, and that they will soon be on to something much, much better.  Aside from the beautiful arrangement and vocals, the lyrics are exceptionally touching.  In the final verse, Carrie sings “He looks up and says/I can see God’s face,” a lyric that’s so real it will surely shake some of the winter ice off of the hearts of many.  The song is traditional country in sound, but Carrie takes a lot of chances with this one in that, while it’s similar in topic to the Paisley/Parton collaboration “When I Get Where I’m Going,” the lyrics are straight forward and very powerful.  Listen to the full song below and see what you think.
