Posted on 12/11/2009 1:53:32 PM PST by Beaten Valve
Beginning Monday, the "Today" will begin three days of "Person of the Year" coverage with Time magazine's announcement set for Wednesday's show.
Time managing editor Richard Stengel will discuss this year's top candidates and the selection process. On Wednesday, Stengel will reveal the 2009 Person of the Year.
The question is the 2nd letter is b or s.
Just a wild guess, but I think it’ll be that guy who won the Nobel Peace Prize, although maybe they should do a special edition of “Person of the Millenium” for that.
Yeah, don’t even have to guess, it’s a given.
Oh, yeah. Building it up for 3 days will give the “surprise” nomination some real street-buzz.
Everyone knew who it was going to be last November, ya putzes!
Gee, I hope Obama gets it. He’s been ignored so by the press. He’ so shy and retiring maybe this will help bring him out of his shell. / s
I really do hope he gets it. Obama has changed the meaning of overexposure.
They need 3 days of build-up to promote this?
Just make the announcement today and get it over with...
It’s Barry, it’s Barry, the lovable, huggable commie.
Who, oh who could it be?
It deserves to be the American taxpayer, but it will be one of the predator criminals, probably the Manchurian Candidate himself.
Because their circulation is not high enough and she’ll sell copies? (sarcasm)
I think we all know who it is....zero!!!! I didn’t see the Babawawa special (if it’s even been on yet)but I’d bet dollars to donuts that zero was her #1 most fasinating person....the media just can’t help itself....they are so firmly in his bed that they can’t seem to find the courage or sense to get out.....sad! And I am so sick of the Oprah ads about her “evening at the wh” with those two chicago thugs.....
It’s gonna be Michelle. This is no girlie choice.
With support for health care “reform” down to 39% I doubt it. Obama was person of year last year, I think, plus his 47% approval rating would keep him off the cover.
I wouldn’t be surprised if they picked Glenn Beck or Sarah Palin this year.
How can a person who in only 12 days as President accomplished enough to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize not be the obvious choice?
Let me guess: Barack Obama?
He’s only graced Time’s cover more times in the last year than any other person in history.
Well he did win the Nobel Peace Prize.
Sarah Palin deserves it. Her numbers are far better than Obammie or any one else.
Her book is a runaway best seller.
People stand in 4 hours lines to get an autograph.
On and on and on....
But do you think those leftards at Time will even give her a second look?
ben bernanke or tim geitner
The only surprise will be if it’s NOT one of the Obaminations.
Oh, I forgot about her.
If I had a vote it would be for the American soldier.
God bless ‘em...
Not that it matters but I won’t be buying their loathsome, foul rag, so I’ll only hear about it here.
Death the MSM, starting with Time. That would please me!
Alas Babylon!, a loyal Time subscriber for years, and then a stronger opponent to their propaganda for even more.
LOL could be huh? Ya think?
His wife made the maxim.com hottest 100 women of the year.
‘It’ ends with an ‘A’ alright! hee hee

I think they should generalize it even more and call it ‘Life Form of the Year’
His FIRST name?
That would have to be Osama Bin Dead
Or maybe Opra Winfrey.
Olivia de Haviland?
Throw the public a real curve and make it Michelle Obama, TIME.
The question is the 2nd letter is b or s.
Or just plain ol’ ‘bs’?
Obama was it last year with his commie colorful pic.
This guy gets it this year whoever he is
I think they should pick Palin.<—— likely to happen NOT! YEAH OTAY!
Would that cover "The Computer", "Endangered Earth" and even "Bill Clinton"?
How much fawning is too much fawning? Can people actually fawn over a half white half black president too much? These and other weighty questions will be discussed on Wednesday the 17th.
Tune in to see ‘The One’ be glorified yet again. Listen in to catch phrases like, “Never before has...”, and “Now we can respect America for the first time...”, and “Well, I don’t deserve it, but it was sure nice of you to kiss my....”
Yes it will be a fun filled day to be sure, one for the record books.
Is there a child of the year award?
Perhaps one of the generic ones, eg “The Climate Scientist.”
They'll give it to Al Gore, as a going away present to global warming hysteria.
And it'll make Time look all the more buffoonish and amateur hour-ish.
I think it’ll be Glenn Beck.
Limbaugh would be a good choice.
Holy crap you’re right.
WARNING: TO THOSE WITH WEAK STOMACHES.
Hes only graced Times cover more times in the last year than any other person in history.
