Democrats pick up House and Senate seats, but don't take majority in either house.
Time names Blog of the Year.
Nothing much changes in Iraq; sectarian violence continues but US troop presence staves off inevitable all-out civil war.
Some sharks bite some guys.
Some white women go missing for a few days.
A nasty hurricane hits Florida. Local Democratic city comptroller blamed for inadequate response.

Santorum booted out on ass by Casey.
Paul Hackett loses senate race 51-49.

John Gibson and O'Reilly say a bunch of stupid shit, nobody pays attention to them, until they gin up the War on Xmas again, the day after Thanksgiving.
