Yep, I agree

What makes people like Pryor think they will be stronger really often makes them weaker. Running from the President and not offering much of a choice is just counter productive for any Democrat.

Post your favorite albums of 2011 list

I thought it was a good year with next year likely to be even better with releases by A Fine Frenzy, Michelle Branch, Ingrid Michaelson, The Veronicas, and hopefully U2 and The Pierces' US release of their 2011 album that I have not heard. I still have yet to hear quite a few albums and could definitely change this in late Dec. or January. But here's what I have right now, since there are no UPCOMING CDs in December that I want:

Top 20 -

The Decemberists - The King Is Dead
Eisley - The Valley
Lykke Li - Wounded Rhymes
Christina Perri - lovestrong.
Kate Voegele - Gravity Happens
Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues
Kina Grannis - Stairwells
Stevie Nicks - In Your Dreams
Fountains Of Wayne - Sky Full Of Holes
Lights - Siberia
Vanessa Carlton - Rabbits On The Run
Laura Stevenson & Cans - Sit Resist
Tristen - Charlatans At The Garden Gate
R.E.M. - Collapse Into Now
The Stinkin' Pinkos - Songs to Offend Everyone
The Cars - Move Like This
Indigo Girls - Beauty Queen Sister
Wilco - The Whole Love
Paul Simon - So Beautiful or So What
The Bangles - Sweetheart Of The Sun

A few of the honorable mentions:

Kelly Clarkson - Stronger
Jayhawks - Mockingbird Time
Adele - 21
The Civil Wars - Barton Hollow
Laura Marling - A Creature I Don't Know

So what are your favorites?
