Barbara Walters' top 10 most fascinating people of 2008  

It aired last night. And she most definitely did pick some fascinating people. Such as Thomas Beatie, who we all know and remember and (hopefully) love. Walters lost some points with me during her reaction to the news that Beatie is pregnant again. I think the proper response is "congratulations," NOT "I'm speechless."

And then of course we have the positively grotesque and arrogant Rush Limbaugh. This is where Walters gains points for having the guts to call Rush out on his bullshit. She quotes Rush's lovely comment on the country not being ready to watch a woman grow older before their eyes (talking about Clinton), to which Rush tries to claim that he was commenting on how unfair our culture is to older women. Right. Walters has the perfect response: "You're not fighting our battles." Oh, and I definitely laughed the hardest when Rush called himself "tolerant."

Also on the list was the very wonderful, talented, beautiful Tina Fey. Of course she made the list because her Palin impersonations were the hot topic this year.

Speaking of Sarah Palin... she was #3.

Aaaand not surprisingly, #1 was our new celebrity and president, Barack Obama.

What next?

    I couldn't agree with your more on BW's tasteless remark of "I'm speechless." This was part of an hour long episode that aired on 20/20 several weeks ago and what she also said is, "I don't know what to say...I'm speechless." And I yelled at her thru my tv and said, "Your suppose to be a human being and say congrats!" BW is sadly going down in my book.
