I'll give you three guesses who Time's "Man of the Year" is and the first two don't count. (Hint: Go look in the mirror you sexy beast you.)
Could the editors of that silly magazine be any stupider? Captain Ed agrees and has some salient points. He says:
Eh. So this is the year for the great huddled masses? Wouldn't that have been 1989, when the momentum of freedom and liberty felled an Evil Empire and tore down a wall in Berlin? Instead, Time selected Mikhail Gorbachev, and also named him its Man of the Decade for managing to take the Soviet Union into oblivion. The fact that they selected him over the two men responsible for forcing him into that position shows the problems Time has always had in seeing the long view of history.He would have picked President Good Hair of Iran and Kim Jong B'Illin of North Korea. Actually, I agree with him. Those two whack-jobs kinda informed the debate this year, didn't they?
