Here we're parodying Conservapedia, and we know we're exaggerating.

2008 is a year with a few problems. Yes, there was a continued quagmire in Iraq, the advance of the conservative/neoconservative movement, further pushes for creationism/intelligent design in schools, and more unreasonable bigotry from the far right in general...

On September 11 2008 (The seventh Anniversary of 9/11) a Memorial was dedicated to the 184 victims who lost their lives at that very location on that unfortunate fateful day in 2001.[1]

On November 4th America Barack Obama defeated John McCain in the 2008 US presidential election, which at the time was considered a great victory for liberalism!
