Here it is: the post you've all been waiting for. Right.
A few third world county posts from 2005. Not necessarily "The best of TWC" but certainly representative of the "most unrecognized posts of TWC 2005" :-). Warts and all: typos, tortured syntax, whatever.
January 2005: The LLMB and MMPA's psychotic break with reality
Witness this fair paraphrase of the progression of positions taken by the LLMB and MMPA leading up to and continuing through and beyond the [Iraq] election:

2.) The promised elections are not/will not be possible. (Demonstrably false)
3.) The promised election will not take place on time.(Demonstrably false)
4.) The elections will be a failure, a bloodbath. (Demonstrably false)
5.) The election will be illegitimate (because of non-participation). (Demonstrably false)

Belaboring the obvious: Bob Dylan flogs a dead horse...

August 2005: Open Borders Kill
"Open Borders"-the words have a ring of liberty, equality, fraternity… but please remember where the last great movement with that catchphrase ended up...
