Duh Progressive would like thank our wonderful 120,000-plus idividual visitors we had this year. Whether you're a conservative or a liberal (because, hey, nobody's perfect ;), or libertarian, or a schizoid-neo-fasci-hermaphroditic-communist with Restless Leg Syndrome, Duh Progressive wants to please you by laughing at politics and the crazy culture we have today. Political satire is a tight rope to walk, and we are trying to walk it delicately yet offensively, inspiring our viewers to laugh while concidering of the points we are trying to make.
So thank you, from the bottom our hearts! Next year we will have 500,000 visitors, then 1 million, then millions, and then...who knows...
So thank you! Thank You! THANK YOU! THANK YOU ALL, Libs & Cons & WTF-AM-I's all over the world. Not many people can die saying they've made 100,000 complete strangers laugh (and think a little, by God!), but at least we can, at least as of this year. Cheers to 2012!
Duh Progressive: using humor conservatives don’t get to make points liberals don’t like since 2009!
P.S. We Love You (yes, even you liberals...on occassion)
