obama1 300x200 Is Obama the worst president ever?I have a Top 10 Questions To Which The Answer Is No in The Independent on Sunday magazine today, collating some of the best featured on this blog over the past year.

Spotted by Matthew Hoffman.

Number 990, asked by Guy Walters in the Daily Mail:

Thanks to Mark Wallace.
