    What do 1939 and 2012 have in common in the annuls of Time’s Man of the year? Shitbags.

    Why does Time call the leader of al-Qaeda the man of the year? Isn’t that un-American?

    Isn’t it time to IMPEACH Obama yet?

    He can spend a lifetime in prison polishing his medals for all I care (vs the appropriate sentence for Treason)

    Just when you think they are going to select Kim Jong-un, they switch it up and pick his brother.

    All that’s left now is a Pulitzer prize, National Book Award, Eagle Scout and Congressional Medal of Honor. What a guy.

    Once I learned the title is given to anyone that impacts the world a lot – and negatively does not disqualify you – I understood that it is not a prize of praise like we assume it connotes.

    Yasser Arafat was the one that had me go WTF?

    O will get it again if he brings forth the true patriots that free the nation once again but this time from his dastardly grip. Just because without him it wouldn’t have needed to happen.

    Strange prize. Should be re-named so the average joe stops thinking it means they are good people to get this.

    It’s confusing to read about a selfless Mom getting Mom-of-the-year and then reading this crap. Completely opposite criteria. Very misleading.

    TIME can suck one.

    “Enema Nozzle of the Year” – maybe.

    “Fraudulently Elected Usurper of the Year” – maybe.

    “Crypto-Nazi of the Year” – fo sure.

    I am unable to express my disgust at the constant drone of the sycophantic press. I am sick of seeing this poser’s visage everywhere I turn. Reminds me of a communist country with pictures of “Fearless Leader” pasted on any structure that the food riots left standing…

    Any minute now, we’ll all realize that we’ve become trapped in a zany, screwball comedy featuring an all-star cast that’s set in a third world dictatorship.

    GM just announced they’re moving Camaro production to Canada. Of course this will be on all the networks tonight.

    So how’s that stimulus working out?

    I’ve gotta say, I think he deserves it. Man of the Year isn’t for the person who had the greatest positive influence, but who had the greatest influence. For him and his team to have pulled off that election victory was pretty remarkable, and we are dangerously close to a fiscal cliff compromise of ‘raise taxes now, think about maybe cutting costs later’. The impact of Obama’s 2012 will be felt for a long, long time.

    Why did they darken everything? To make him look more black rather than like the white guy he is?

    Sh*t, I thought for sure it’d be Sotomayor, or maybe Ellen or eventhat diseased Rapechel Madcow!

    WTF?

    Why can’t a flaming lesbo be man of the year for once?

    If they could get hold of a picture of Satan he would be on the cover beside his boy.

    well, i’m confused…the cover says “person of the year” not MAN of the year…hmmm…he is certainly no MAN, but perhaps he could garner “Swish of the Year”…
