It’s the last Saturday of the year, which means it’s time for the 8th annual Best of Adrastos list.
I tried to limit it to a top thirty but landed at forty. Consider me an AM DJ from the Seventies or some such shit. I suppose I should play a hit from back in the day:
The news wasn’t as consistently bleak this year: the Impeached Insult Comedian’s political fortunes waned and his legal troubles mounted. The satire business, however, did not suffer as there are still targets aplenty.
There are two entries from my new weekly feature The Sunday Dozen. It’s one reason I landed at forty. I spin some pretty darn good yarns in those posts.
One of my favorite posts of the year, The Puppetmaster? was submitted to the annual Jon Swift Memorial post at Vagabond Scholar. It made this list as well. I had no choice: I’m following orders from the Puppermaster DBA Andrew Weissmann.
Without further ado, I give you the Best of Adrastos 2022 in chronological order. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did compiling it.
