Person of Year Isn't So Much
We are told that at today's TIME Person of the Year luncheon, "Mother Nature emerged as the consensus choice." Right. "Mother Nature." They've really loosened the requirements for that "person" slot, eh? We're hoping "The Easter Bunny" has a shot next year, or maybe "rain."
We also understand that panelist Brian Williams teased a big NBC Nightly News scoop on Samuel Alito at the end of the event, saying "we may have a wrinkle in the nomination of Alito today." How dare he use that august forum for such blatant self promotion? We're totally testifying in front of Congress or something about that.
