We close 2007 with the most appropriate video message possible - Leonid Brezhnev's historic 1970 New Year's address, the first televised January 1st address to the nation by a Soviet leader.
A strange choice, you say? We're living in strange times, I say. Old Brezhnev really livens up the joint. And he looks just like Jonah Goldberg's idea of a liberal.
Anyway, a happy New Year to my friends and readers. Not my idea of a holiday really; more of an obligation to flip the calendar and defrost Dick Clark.
