Kerry Humbled to Be Named Time’s ‘Person of the Year’ by Scott Ott

(2006-12-17) — Sen. John Kerry, D-MA, today announced he is “humbled and grateful” to be named Time Magazine’s ‘Person of the Year‘ for 2006.

“When I picked up my copy of Time at the newsstand,” said Sen. Kerry, “and saw my own image looking back at me, I thought ‘Of all the great people in the world this year — Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, Kofi Annan, Kim Jong-Il — how can it be you, John?’”

The presumptive runner-up for the Democrat presidential nomination in 2008 said he had not yet read the Time cover story because “modesty restrains me.”

“And yet,” Sen. Kerry added, “in a way, my whole life has been moving toward this moment when the people of this nation and their leaders would say, ‘You’re the one, John’. There’s a sense of destiny, and you can’t fight that.”

In related news, spokesmen for Sen. Hillary Clinton and former Sen. John Edwards said both would appear at separate news conferences later today to reflect on their feelings after being named Time magazine’s ‘Person of the Year’ for 2006.

In view of his rushing off to Iraq or Afghanistan or wherever 'to see how the troops are faring and give his support', (is your skin crawling yet?), Time's coverboy is the stuff Kerry's dreams are made of.

It's SCRAPPLEFACE. It's SATIRE. The actual Man of the Year was "You" - a homage to the "Army of Davids" concept. The joke is that Kerry would read it and think it literally applied to just him.

Hush! Don't nobody let on.

This is just another variant of the "Pig Date" at the frat house and Lurch is the "winner".

He'll be the only one that "doesnt get it"...as usual.

I’m very sensitive about my ears. I was teased relentlessly when I was little, ...
so I want to know what you are going to do about it.... I'm waiting.... I'm all ears."

It's a shame, really, the way media has gone to the dogs. The only thing worse is that so many people simply don't notice.

I thought it was Mac and decided I was wrong. I remember him and Glenn Campbell in their heydays...

Also,"Countin' Flowers on the Wall, that don't bother me at all, smoking cigarettes and watching Capt. Kangaroo, now don't tell me I've nothing to do..."
