Putin on short list for Time's Person of the Year
— Purple Avenger

OK I could go along with that.

MOSCOW, November 28 (RIA Novosti) – Time magazine said Thursday that it had shortlisted Russian President Vladimir Putin as a candidate for “person of the year,”...
OTOH, it seems Milly cyrus and the Tsarnaev brothers are on the short list too.
Currently leading the online poll, with almost a quarter of the votes, is US pop star Miley Cyrus, who shocked American audiences in August with a risque performance at an MTV awards ceremony.

Other candidates are the newborn heir to the British throne Prince George, Pope Francis, Boston bombing suspects Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, as well as the leaders of the United States, Syria, China and Iran. The list has 42 candidates.

And of course the 800lb Snowden gorilla.

Pool anyone? I'll stake out the low ground with Cyrus.

Speaking of all things Russia, it seems Russians aren't all that happy with their legislature either.

...Only 39 percent of respondents — down 8 percentage points since 2011 — said the country could not function normally without the Duma, while 43 percent said the legislature was largely redundant, compared with 32 percent in 2011.

Only 16 percent of respondents said they had positive feelings about the Duma's work, down 4 percentage points since 2011.

32 I think a lot of entertainment writers, and a lot of people in general, like to imagine how easily shocked other people are. They have a fantasy image of themselves as sophisticated and unshockable, unlike the rubes in flyover country. It's comically historically ignorant. Miley is, what, the 12th former Disney girl to do the big slut turn when she out-grew her tween audience. This was totally predictable. And many, many people predicted she would do exactly what she's done. Because the media love it. Cause it feeds their ego of imagining all the horrified midwest, suburban disney moms upset about their tween daughter's hero going full slut-tard on live TV. But all the midwest suburban Disney moms probably knew this was gonna happen. Cause it happens with every Disney girl. Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, etc. It's just odd how the media thinks Americans are so easily shocked. They do know we have internet porn, right?

Posted by: Flatbush Joe at November 30, 2013 08:38 AM (ZPrif)

33 It will probably be Pope Francis, what with his "support" for abortion and communism and all (none of which he's actually stated, of course, but liberals aren't really known for their reading comprehension.)  If the MFM knew anything about Church history they would understand that a Pope cannot, will not change the teachings of the Church, which last time I checked specifically prohibit abortion and condemn communism.  You'll hear Popes speaking out against abuses of capitalism, but seeing as Francis came from a nation which is currently in the process of being utterly ruined by it, I doubt he'll be seen in a Mao shirt any time soon. 

It's interesting to note that many, many more pictures of Francis embracing the poor and disfigured are being circulated even though The Deuce and B16 did exactly the same thing.  But they were much less off-the-cuff speakers, far less easy to misinterpret, so phooey to them and their old male whiteness.

Miley Cyrus is just a silly twit who wants attention. That said, the girl does have a decent voice. Don't believe me? Search youtube for her version of "Jolene".  The kid can sing. Is she playing the shock card for attention? Hell yeah.  Damn near all the girl singers do that. They imitate Madonna's shock and awe to throw off the good girl image and get some "street cred".  One problem.... they do not have the same level of talent that Madonna had back in the day.  And yes, at one time Madonna had talent.  Her voice has gone to shit.  Same thing with Cher.  Voice gone, mind gone, made entirely of plastic now.

54 Miley is worth around $120 million. Instead of being super slut to gain attention, she could hold out for better movie roles or produce her own material. But I think the girl has a screw loose and is an exhibitionist. After her fiance dumped her, she was seen hanging all over these butt ugly rapers.

Posted by: The Commenting Software at November 30, 2013 01:52 PM (kkbgQ) I think at a certain level and given a certain mindset, such as Putin's, money is only good for the power and influence it can buy, for the competitors it can bury. Putin, for example, doesn't strike me as the type who revels in luxury and pleasure. He does, however, strike me as the type who sees himself as a Russian patriot, a strongman leader and master strategist in the mold of Ivan the Terrible, Katherine the Great, and yes, Joseph Stalin. Money is incidental to such people.

Putin may be the only honest asshole on the list.  I mean, he is honest about being an asshole. Doesn't try to hide it, or excuse it, or make it seem more honorable and important than it truly is,  he just kind of revels in it actually.   The pope may be the only decent human being on the list and the baby prince is definitely the only innocent human there.

101 WASHINGTON/TOKYO (Reuters) - The United States advised its commercial airlines to notify Chinese authorities of flight plans when travelling through an air defense zone that Beijing established a week ago over the East China Sea, ratcheting up regional tensions. The United States said it expected U.S. carriers to operate in line with so-called notices to airmen issued by foreign countries, adding, however, that the decision did "not indicate U.S. government acceptance of China's requirements. The advice is in contrast with America's close ally Japan, where the two major airlines have agreed with the Japanese government to fly through the zone without notifying China.

It's kind of interesting that Time, with a value of $1, still gets a fair amount of coverage over their poty pick. I think it's a mark of tradition. That's kind of a running joke in our family -- that if you do something one time, when the same date rolls around the next year you have to do it again, because Tradition.
 
And if you do do it twice, definitely Tradition.

107 Speaking of all things Russia, it seems Russians aren't all that happy with their legislature either. Clearly these "democratically elected legislatures" are antiquated and obsolete in the New Era. We need strong, unencumbered leaders to get things done.

108 It will be The Pope.  He's an edgy enough choice to please the  media and the left because he bothers conservative Catholics, but he's safe enough to sell lots of physical copies of the magazine.  You saw what the surviving Tsaraneav did to Rolling Stone's newstand sales.

109 Person of the Year: Rob Ford.

110 I like "Big Grievance" without grievance the DNC and all of its pissant constituencies and especially the scoamf don't exist

111 I think it should be a three-way: Hil Dog, Moochel; and Milky Virus. Preferably in a donkey show.

112 Anti-Monsanto activists assaulted in Argentina
At least 20 people have been injured in clashes in Argentina between union members and environmental activists, who were protesting the construction of a plant by the biotech giant Monsanto.

Ha-ha indeed! May they both lose.

113 Soooo.  To make the short list, all you need to do is wave your private bits around in public?

I've got this.

114 India's Mars Orbiter Mission has started its 23-minute Mars injection burn.

115 108--- It will be The Pope. Posted by: JoeyBagels at November 30, 2013 02:26 PM (sHCUL) ---------------------------- You could be right. It really should be Putin because he has reasserted Russian world leadership. But because this has happened largely because of Dear Leader's weakness and silliness, the Time people may balk at choosing Pooty. Having a new pope makes it convenient to bypass the guy who's been making a fool of POTUS. *sigh*

116 46 Miley Cyrus is just a silly twit who wants attention. That said, the girl does have a decent voice. Don't believe me? Search youtube for her version of "Jolene". The kid can sing.

Hi there, pleased to make your acquaintance.

No comparison to  the 23 minute Uranus Injection Burn.

118 Why not Chris Christie?  He's fit and trim and pissing off all of the right people.

119 78 Actually, you won in 2006. Seriously. Posted by: mugiwara at November 30, 2013 01:57 PM (6BnTn) Yeah, but that was a group award so it doesn't really count. Posted by: GGE of the Moron Horde, NC Chapter at November 30, 2013 02:00 PM (yh0zB) *gazes sadly at my award on the mantelpiece*

3 of 4 letters correct is 75% and you need 80% to pass.

122 Who was the guy who stated that it was a mistake to buy Newsweek? Make him Man of the Year, Time.

123 Maybe they could give a group award again to the Party People. No, make that the Express-Yourself people. Party People sounds like fun and lefties do not like fun. Weiner, Chelsea Manning, Rob Ford, Miley Cyrus. There must be more of 'em. Express yourself---- in everyone else's face!

125 As more and more doctors leave the profession because of Obamacare, and close their offices, future sales of Time's print edition look very bleak indeed.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at November 30, 2013 09:41 AM (8Fl6F)

126 people still pay attention to what they print in Time?

who knew....

127 Let's see union thugs v. Anti-science environmental Luddites. I'll look for the union label. Steve Mcintyre should be man of the year or oil man George Mitchell. People who made a positive difference. For 2014 Nigel Farage.

129 Miley Cyrus, who shocked American audiences in August with a risque performance at an MTV awards ceremony. They spelled grotesque wrong.

130 It has to be one of satan's minions. So that rules out Putin.

Posted by: EROWMER at November 30, 2013 11:38 AM (OONaw)

131 You're all wrong. In the US, it will be Miley Cyrus. In all other parts of the world, it will be their real socialist boyfriend Putin.
