Say Goodbye to Your Favorite Stars
2010! What a year that existed! And like every year, we had our fair share of instant celebrities. Folks that should have in no way become famous. Folks, that despite their ambitions to stick around in our collective mindset, will never be heard from again. ‘

2. Christine O'Donnell
What She’ll Try to be Remembered For: A lengthy political career.
What She Will Be Remembered For: Witchcraft, hatred of masturbation, denying evolution. You know, political mumbo jumbo.

What He Will Be Remembered For: ‘Winning the primary despite being arguably mentally-handicapped, howling at reporters, living at home with his father while running for Senate, showing college students porn. Come to think of it, this is exactly what this country needs. Greene 2012! ‘
