OUR BARRY IS TIME'S PERSON OF THE YEAR
Nice hat, dude! InTime's profoundly insightful cover package, Barack Obama's brother-in-law reports that the President-elect is "extremely left-handed." This is obviously some sort of code. But for what???? Anyway FAIL, Time, for not going with a more counterintuitive pick like "The Ghost of Your Fraudulent Mortgage Broker," or "Cheryl Tiegs." With that in mind, let's have a look at the losers who were not designated Hawaiian Shark-God Basketballing Prodigy of the Year.
- Hank Paulson, the chicken-faced goon who stole all of America's money and gave it to ... America? Or AIG, whichever.
- Nicolas Sarkozy, because he is banging a supermodel.
- Sarah Palin, a lying sack of snowbilly trash and national embarrassment.
- Zhang Yimou, a Chinese person.
2008 was clearly not a great year for humans.
