Chavez, Ahmadinejad Lead Time’s Man Of Year

We don’t normally take much notice of polls. And this is a particularly lame one, being the readers submissions to Time Magazine for their Man Person Of The Year nonsense accolade.

Surely it is still revealing of something. But what?

Who Should Be Person of the Year?

TIME’s Person of the Year is the person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or for ill, and embodied what was important about the year. Who do you think fits the bill this year?

35% Hugo Chavez

21% Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

12% Nancy Pelosi

11% The YouTube Guys

8% George W. Bush

8% Al Gore

5% Condoleezza Rice

2% Kim Jong Il

Doing good deeds in a naughty world doesn’t get you much credit from the thoughtful readers of Time. In fact, it seems to be just the opposite. Our entertainment establishment’s "anti-hero" movement has succeeded even beyond their expectations.

And, yes I know Mr. Hitler was awarded this dubious distinction in 1938. But he received it despite his questionable acts, not because of them.

(Thanks to VoiceOfReason for the heads up.)
