12:40 PM -- The Washington Post has served up its list of The Worst Ideas of the Decade, by which they clearly mean "American" ideas (jihad on the U.S. doesn't rank here, nor does Kim Jong-il's hair).

The list includes the BlackBerry and TV dancing competitions, which is all well and good... But sub-prime loans and mortgage backed securities (remember them?) somehow didn't make the cut, nor did Glenn Beck's War Room. And how about Rob Schneider movies? Or the odd idea that the decade ends with 2009?

I hesitate to ask... but what are yours?
