Not cute. Not ”person of the year” worthy, either.

Yes, it’s true:

Here are the final ten contenders for TIME’s Person of the Year (listed alphabetically):

Bashar Assad, President of Syria

Jeff Bezos, Amazon Founder

Ted Cruz, Texas Senator

Miley Cyrus, Singer

Pope Francis, Leader of the Catholic Church

Barack Obama, President of the United States

Hassan Rouhani, President of Iran

Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services

Edward Snowden, N.S.A. Leaker

Edith Windsor, Gay rights activist

That’s quite, um, a “diverse” list Time has there.  Not sure how Miley fits in but then again the list has been pretty much worthless for years. I’d have a little more respect for it if it included more deserving nominees like these people:

There ya go.

Any other suggestions?

    If Time wanted to make money and sell out the issue then they would put Ted Cruz because even I might buy it. I haven’t bought a Time magazine since the mid 70’s

    Isn’t Time magazine the one that exposed the middle finger pictures of the crew of the USS Pueblo (AGER-2) as not the “Hawaiian good luck sign” as they were told by the crew in captivity in North Korea and then the crew suffered more beatings?

    I have no use for Time magazine. I care less for who they say is person of the year. Unless the criteria for that is if someone is sticking out thier tounge the first thing that comes to mind is Uppercut!

    One page of Time, folded once, was good for 1970. Now it’s half a page folded twice.

  4. Carlos says:

    There was a time when Time’s “Person of the Year” (called “Man of the Year” back then) actually could be defended by a somewhat reasonable person.

    Sure, I’d like to see Cruz as winner, but in fact, what has he actually DONE to warrant that?

    And anyone else on the list? I wouldn’t walk across the street to see any of them either in a personal meeting or as an act (in the case of the slut).

    Time’s “Person of the Year” now is as meaningless and useless as the magazine is now, and has been for decades.
