I'll admit that I wasn't familiar with the term "blood libel" until this week.  But then again, I'm not producing videos that somehow make me the center of attention during a time of national mourning.  Unfortunately for Sarah Palin, the "try not to find yet another group to piss off" horse has already left the barn so it's too late for this fortune to do her any good.  But then again, tomorrow's another day...

2010: The Gray Flannel Suit Year That Was

Blogstuff
It's been another fun year for me in running this site, and I'd like to thank all of you who visit regularly, irregularly, or even once.  I'd also like to thank everyone who has helped by contributing comments and post ideas.  It's good to know there's at least a few people out there who enjoy my little corner of the intertubes.  Since we're in the midst of year-end review season, let's take a quick look back at the posting year that was 2010 for The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit. Most Popular Posts This is really what it's all about right?  It's always interesting to me to see what content takes off and what content gets largely ignored.  Since I want to stay positive I'll focus on the former.  So here are the eleven most-popular posts on the site for 2010. #11.

People, TV & Radio
Andrea Friedman is an actress.  Notably, but not more importantly, Andrea Friedman also has Down Syndrome.  Nevertheless, she's still managed to carve out a decent acting career for herself, with her most recent appearance being in an episode of Family Guy.  Long story short, in the recent Valentine's Day episode Friedman's character (who also has Down Syndrome) joked about being Palin's daughter.  So naturally, the self-appointed defender of the downtrodden opened her piehole to garner some sympathy. Well Friedman was having none of that.  Here's her response to Palin: My name is Andrea Fay Friedman. I was born with Down syndrome.

I try to keep things light around here, and therefore relatively free of politics.  But this is simply too rich to pass up.  It's a video of vice presidential candidate and current Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, delivering a speech to the Wasilla Assembly of God (her one-time church). According to the video uploader, the speech was delivered about three months ago, so it's not a long-lost nugget from Palin's past like the video of her as a young sportscaster or the pictures of her as an aspiring beauty queen.  And that means it's fair game. I'm not going to get into the strictly spiritual aspects of this clip, as I try to maintain a healthy level of respect for the religious beliefs of others.  But a few things stood out as rather disturbing - see if you can guess what they are!
