The 120 Greatest Moments of the 2008 Presidential Race
From 2007 to last week. With accompanying YouTube clips. Spread out over 4 blog posts, which I've been posting since April.

Biased and incomplete? Guaranteed! (Full disclosure: I'm for Obama, but I've tried to puncture everyone all around.)

Most of these are in the form of quotations. I've left out who said what -- so if you like, you can use this as a quiz (strictly optional!) to test your knowledge of the most dramatic presidential race in a long time.

I certainly understand if some of you out there have had enough after almost 2 years. But then why are you reading this? For those who can't get enough presidential-candidate buffoonery, here you go.

I got to number three or four or five and ended up wandering off into random spaces in history, fixing shitty Wikipedia articles (with minutes old knowledge) and having a blast. Thanks! This is what the internet is for.

Why 120? A specific reason for that?

xorry: Thanks!

Ms. Saint: I thought 100 would be a good number, but I ended up reaching 100 right after the conventions. It seemed like the list wouldn't be complete unless there were one more entry to include all the debates, so I just decided to keep adding whatever was left and stop at a round number (120). I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't exactly 100, but I think the extra 20 items were worth it.
