It probably should have been Ahmadinejad or someone like that, but they probably didn't want to offend anyone. I don't mind being a person of the year though.

Yeah but how will they ever pick anyone again? Everyone will be a repeat. I mean I guess Stalin was on there twice, so they can do repeats, but setting themselves up for an eternity of repeat winners only further adds to the lameness.

Bush got it twice, and they once picked "American women" in the 70s. But it is almost as lame as picking "the computer" in the 80s.

No one really stood out. They could have chosen Nancy Pelosi, but she wasn't influential enough for them to do so.

I always knew I was a winner. This is going right on the old resume.

Remember when they named Earth as Planet of the Year in 1988? We'd had an absolutely filty dirty Presidential campaign, so they didn't pick President-elect Bush I.

I wonder how people would react if I really did this..... If I were applying to a job with a sense of humor I'd totally do this.

And it's better than Rumsfield who was being considered.

They were discussing doing Bush, Cheney, and Rummy as an 'axis of incompetence' or something like that.

Time proves to have set an example of keeping it real.
Nice choice.
Yes, Ahmadinejad should have won as a person, but hey, he also has a blog of himself. So he did win, in a way
