Join host Steve Green of VodkaPundit.com for a look back this Christmas weekend, at long, strange year there was, and how we got we here:

  • Steve looks back at one of the biggest political stories of 2009, the passing of Sen. Ted Kennedy, which has repercussions to this day.
  • As she explains to Dr. Helen, blogger and syndicated “advice goddess” Amy Alkon sees rude people — and does something about it.
