Usually in a Presidential election year they pick the person who won the election, but maybe they are tired of Obama covers.

Let's see, they could pick Candy Crowley for her teamwork with Obama on the second debate, or the guy who caught Mitt's "47%" comment at a private meeting, or Sandra Fluke. Or John Roberts for his vote on Obamacare.

The inside choice:


Undocumented Immigrants

dek Gian Paul Lozza for TIME

What do you think?

Should Undocumented Immigrants be TIME's Person of the Year 2012?

What’s our strategy here? To pick the obviously worst possible representative of human scum to be on Slime’s cover?

Times’s person of the year should be the Honey Boo Boo voter. The Honey Boo Boo voter is one who chose free condoms and butch lesbians in top military slots over jobs and economic growth. These voters are abortion enthusiasts and seek hyphenated names. These folks demand others suck up a tax increase while paying none themselves. The ‘Boo voter thinks Obamacare wont cost them anything, and when they get the bill, they claim poverty using the obamacare app on a 499.00 phone, while applying antispetic to the site of their new tattoo.

The reality show voter hates the rich for their wealth, but is silent about Hussein’s 20 day, 4 million dollar, Hawaiian vacation. These stalwart citizens got into fistfights on black Friday over their made in China products while demanding US companies pay more taxes for moving their operations overseas..due to the very regulations the Boo voter’s candidates stand for.

Time’s person of the year, the silly, selfish, ignorant, Obama voter. Who else could it be?

I was hoping to see the Obamaphone woman as a candidate. She captured the Zeitgeist of 2012.

I can’t believe this rag is still being published and sold for a price. I would have thought by now Time Magazine would have been an insert in whatever Sunday edition of a liberal newspaper the Ganett News Organization puts out.

Yes. The sad thing is that the worst representative is probably the most accurate. The person of the year is the one person who has the most attributes of the typical Obama worshipper .....and that would be Sandra Fluke.

I subscribed to Time back in the 1970s. Didn't seem to be a bad magazine back then.

Of course, I was a flaming liberal back then. So I probably didn't notice the bias.

Wow, and we thought we had bad choices in the republican primaries!

And Hillary Clinton and Chris Christie are the only popular Ameican pols on the list.

America’s collective IQ seems to be dropping like a rock.

Looks like Kim Jong Un is the runaway winner. 5 mil vs under 2 mil for runnerup.

Glad to see that Psy is way ahead of BJ Clinton and Plugs Biden.

Is Karl Marx on the list? I won't give the Slimes a hit.

Given the NYT criteria for POTY, methinks 0bama's mentor should win.
