Vote for Sarah, Times Magazine's Person of the Year

Who Will Be Person of the Year 2008? Barack Obama? Gordon Brown? Michael Phelps?

Click through the pros and cons of our finalists for Person of the Year and vote for the candidates you think are most deserving.

Well at the moment, Sarah Palin has over 6,000 votes and the next person behind her is only 2000 votes and that's Barack Obama. Go to the link below and cast your votes.

Vote a 10 for Sarah Palin and a 1 for all the others if you like.

There is no way Time Magazine gives this to anyone else but Obama. Don’t get your hopes up.

Actually, I can’t find the poll anywhere . . . I’d rather not go too deep into Time Magazine websites . . . where the hell is it?

I found it only by going down the page and seeing 0bamas picture beside the byline “Who will be the Person of the year”. I clicked on that and it took me to the voting section with all 25 people on it.

Who gives a crap about Time Magazine. When it was important, they had a communist on there all year.

Jesus, I am so tired of our side continuing to give any credibility to these institutions and elements that consistently work to undermine everything good about this country. Sarah Palin should refuse to allow the cover shot and turn down the ‘honor’, if that is within her legal rights.

Wake up, you clowns.

the only way Obama doesn't get selected person of the year is if Time decides to hit the sap lever one more time and pick "the American voter."

Actually I can totally see that happening.

Palin could personally cure cancer AND AIDS and it would still go to Obama.

Unless Space Aliens land in Central Park in the next month to bring Peace to the world I do not see Time naming anyone else Man of the Year.

Still does not explain how to vote, how to rate numerous candidates, or what it means in the end:
NOTE:
"Vote for your choice, though the editors reserve the right to disagree. Their selection will be announced in the December 29th issue of TIME, on sale Dec. 19"

Any more questions?

“The left will implode if Palin gets it over Obama.”

Since when did Time Magazine ever help anyone other than the left?

Personally, I think Michael Phelps has a legit claim to be person of the year.

They even had Mugabe on the list along with a bunch of ChiComs and mooselimbs. But, Obama will get the nod because this is Time magazine in partnership with CNN and they will not let Obama down.

Sarah and Barak seem to be tied for first so far, with average ratings of 7 each.

But I’m sure they’ll find some way to give it to Holy Hussein.

Obama will no doubt get the prize, but it would be funny if Sarah beat him in the poll.

Actually the poll is pretty insulting. How dare they consider that whack-job from Iran along side Gov. Palin and Senator McCain! And what’s with even considering the repressive leaders of China?! Then there’s the guy they even admit stole an election in Africa... WTF is wrong with these people?

Hitler was the Man of the year in 38 or so.

It has to do with who had the most impact this year.

Palin lost an election but energized Conservatives.

Obama won an election. That’s it.

The Chinese folks on there had the olympics. wow.

Usually in a Presidential election year, whoever wins the election is Man of the Year. I don’t know if they followed that rule in 2000 or 2004, though.

The Obamatons came out in full force as soon as they got wind of this. He’s up to 44k w/9 rating. Barracuda is second in votes but has dropped to a 4 way tie for third in ratings with a 6.

They did. Bush was man of the year in both 2000 and 2004.

You are right it should be Michael Phelps...but they will go with Zero because it is racist to put a white man on the cover.
