None of the Above

Time’s Person of the Year is, er, None of the Above.  In a year when the two dominant candidates are Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, it was politically necessary in the context of current American politics to pull some sorry excuse out of their ass, so that’s what they did.  It would be difficult for the CIA to assassinate a ‘Person of the Year’.  In the long term, Hugo Chavez may well turn out to be the ‘Person of the Millennium’, and is certainly the ‘Person of the Decade’.
