Just after the new year, Twenty Most Annoying Conservatives of the Year will be making its long-awaited return. This is the nomination thread, and here are the criteria:

1.) The person nominated must have either been an avowed conservative or substantially advanced conservative aims (as annoying and terrible as Mark Penn was, he was still - theoretically - trying to get a Democrat elected).

2.) Provide a reason or two why the person is so annoying, and the substantial part of the justification must have occurred within the calendar year of 2008.

3.) Individuals must be nominated - if you want to nominate an organization, nominate a person on behalf of the organization.

4.) Jonah Goldberg's already on the list.
