From the debt ceiling crisis to the rollercoaster Republican race for president, politics has been endlessly fascinating. (Isn’t it always?) The Capitals and Nationals both changed their managers in 2011 and the Redskins (still) stink. Heck, we even had an earthquake.

But who (or what) had the absolute worst year in Washington? We want to hear from you!

You can check out all of the “winners” of our “Worst Week in Washington” award here. And, make sure to check out our writeup of the Michael Steele, who had the worst 2010 in Washington.
