'The Top 10 Conservatives of 2009'

John Hawkins loves to make lists and he's usually right on the money.

His latest: A list of "The Top 10 Conservatives of 2009" -- you know, the people the mainstream media ignores. (I was little disappointed I didn't make the list, John). The list will surprise you.

From his column:
Let's face it: if you're conservative, you're not going to get your proper due from the mainstream media for your accomplishments. Case in point: Barbara Walters named Michelle Obama the most fascinating person of 2009. Really? Based on what? Her big arms? Her terrible fashion sense? The fact that she's married to the worst President in American history?

I mean, you could understand if Walters named Michelle's husband the most fascinating person of 2009. He is at least the President and it is fascinating to wonder if there's anything going on in his head beyond clichés about hope and "must read teleprompter" repeated over and over.

Of course, Barack Obama was Barbara Walters' most fascinating person of 2008. Wonder who'll be next in 2010? Joe or Jill Biden? In any case, just in case no one else does it, I want to give a little credit where credit is due to some of the conservatives who made a real difference in 2009.
Below is Hawkins list and check out the full column at to find out why they made the Top 10.

10) Andrew Breitbart
9) Marco Rubio
8) Rush Limbaugh
7) Jim DeMint
6) Carrie Prejean
5) Dick Cheney
4) Sarah Palin
3) Glenn Beck
2) James O'Keefe & Hannah Giles
1) The Tea Party Movement

Where is foot-in-the mouth Joe? Make certain he doesn't hookup with Max Baucus at the end of the day or they will give us a philibuster on why Joe shouldn't expect person of the year in 2010
