My favorite quote in the article is;

"For finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union, Barack Obama is TIME's 2012 Person of the Year.

"Amid great adversity" ... in other words, Republicans did it, they got him named Man of the Year.

BAAAA HAAAA HAHAHAHAHA

Reckon what McConnell is thinking?

I've been thrice nominated as Topix Person of the Year, twice I was trumped by LBT, and once by Chris Tolles.

How does Time Magazine select its person of the year?

The editors choose the person who had the most influence for good or bad. It's no more than their collective opinion.

And their opinion is 'we love Obama!'

Well, I'd think our devoted gun packin' minute men of the new United States Militia would charge out there and stop those pesky menacing Mayans from doing that. I hear they're no bigger than a 6 year old.

I understand how they are selected. Before LBT started bragging about what an honor it is for BO, I thought he would like to know some of the previous winners.

He will likely say that GWB and RR were selected because they were universally hated and BO is, of course, loved by all.
