6. Hahaha! The Republican candidates got less votes than murderess Casey Anthony.
How much more unpopular can they get? Bachman had the least of almost everyone in the 32-person poll.

The 99% is now leading, with Anonymous #2

7. Are the freeps all away at douchebag camp or something?
Typically, they live for voting repeatedly in online polls like this. Why, they've been known to polish off three - maybe four - bags on Cheetos while tippy-tapping the night away in Ma's basement.

14. Beam-out-thine-own-eye aside, Anon's probably scripting the hell out of this vote. (nt)

19. Our scripters are better than their scripters?
:rofl:

Here's hoping the freeps and their ilk come to see repeated voting in online polls as an exercise in futility. I would have said 'a fool's errand,' but that pretty well describes practically everything they do on any given day.

10. Rupert Murdoch 94% No.
The sad part is the other 6%. Although it is interesting that it's close to the percent of American adults with serious mental illness (according to NIMH).

13. What terrible choices...
I hate when they choose a group.

The individual choices are not that great either.

17. Because I think the Person of the year should be a.... Person
Just reeks to me of that everyone gets a ribbon, no one is a loser (and in turn no one is a winner) mentality.

18. come on... they put something shiny on the cover and said "You" in 2006
in 1960 it was "US Scientists" and in 1950 it was GI Joe (no not the doll err... action figure).


They do groups as person of the year regularly and this time only 99% gets a ribbon (the 1% don't).

They abandoned journalism long ago. I certainly don't care what they put on their cover.
