Some of my most overhyped stories are also from yesterday's most memorable lines- The Dean Scream and the Kerry Flip Flop, both just beat into the ground over nothing. And just let me say that there were days that Giuliani and Thompson were the only fun to be had in the primaries, and I missed them both when they dropped out. Via First Read.

1. WMD/Iraq as an imminent threat

2. Joe the Plumber

3. Rudy Giuliani/Fred Thompson (tie)

4. The public option

5. Color-coded DHS terror-threat alerts

6. The Obama-Clinton battle over mandates

7. Those PUMAs

8. Bill Ayers

9. Al Gore endorsing Howard Dean

10. The West Virginia Primary

Via the guys at First Read. Any they missed? I think I would have included the "I'm the decider" just because I found it so damn irritating.

1. “I actually voted for the $87 billion before I voted against it.”

2. "The fundamentals of our economy are strong."

3. Bush's "Bring 'em on" and "Dead or alive" (tie).

4. "I can see Russia from my house."

5. "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job."

6. "Go F%&@ yourself."

7. "So it's not surprising then that they get bitter; they cling to guns or religion..."

8. Rumsfeld's "no unknowns" and "Army you have" (tie).

9. "You lie!"

10. "Rudy Giuliani, there are only three things he mentions in a sentence -- a noun, verb, and 9/11."
