2008 was a successful year for a lot of people but there where some standout moments when things just didn’t go as planned. These moments have all gathered here and will be crowned the BIGGEST FAILS of 2008. Did we miss a big fail? Hit the comments and let us know.
1. McCain/Palin 2008
What the fuck was this whole campaign about? John McCain and Sarah Palin will go down in history as having run one of the worst, most out of touch campaigns EVER. Sarah Palin was a complete moron! John McCain looked like he was a piece of cardboard when he was giving a speech or in a debate. Everything about their campaign was a mess and it showed come election night as no one in America was feeling this un-dymanic duo much at all.
2. The US Economy
The US Economy was the biggest FAIL the world has ever seen. With the mis-management of the housing market and the greedy people taking our hard earned money, the US economy went straight into the toilet. And the effects of the US economy being so bad are being felt around the world. We have a ton of work to do in order to get back on track.
3. Madonna and Guy Ritchie
The writing was on the blogs long before Madonna and Guy Ritchie officially announced their divorce. Perez Hilton broke the news several times but they would always deny it was true. But it got to the point when they could no longer hide the facts and announced the divorce. Madonna had to pay Guy Ritchie a BIG load of millions in order to part ways. But it was kind of clear that they where in a loveless marriage. I can’t ever pick out pics of Madonna and Guy together where they looked really happy or in love.
4. Delgo, the worst movie opening of all time!
What is Delgo? No one knows cause no one saw the movie. Delgo is a kids animated movie that no one saw:
Media by Numbers reported “Delgo’s” opening-weekend take at $511,920 in 2,160 theaters. Yahoo! movie writer Jonathan Crow reported that that translates to an average of two people per screening.
5. Rod Blagojevich Tries to Sell Obama’s Senate Seat
Rod Blagojevich is the stupidest man ever in the history of politics. Rod Blagojevich, was arrested on charges of “staggering” corruption that alleged he tried to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacated by fellow Democrat, President-elect Barack Obama. Jessie Jackson Jr. was named as the one he was trying to sell Obama’s senate seat too. Rob thinks he did nothing wrong and was totally a dick about the whole situation. The Illinois officials have formed an impeachment panel and are in the works to get Rod Blagojevich out of office for good.
