According to a new poll taken by the AP, the majority of Americans thought 2009 was a complete turd of a year. Nearly three-fourths of the survey's respondents said 2009 was a bad year, with 42 percent rating it very bad. With all the death, disease and underwear bombs in 2009, it's hard to argue with the assessment. But it's even harder to see why Americans are so optimistic about 2010; 75 percent of respondents said 2010 will be a good year. Don't these people know that 2010 leaves us only two years away from the end of the world?
