    Time's "Man of the Year" is the single person that best personifies the events of the year. When Hitler's army was marching through Europe, Hitler pretty much personified the events of that year (or, more accurately, years).

    Mitch McConnell would be a good candidate for "Man of the Year" as he 1) had to fight a serious fight (for awhile anyway) for his seat AND, leads the change of control of the Senate. He seems to well sum up the politics of 2014.
    Laugh if you will, but I actually already thought that about McConnell.

    Not that Putin isn't terribly newsworthy and personifies the events of 2014, but I think McConnell does even more.

    The Person of the Year winner is obvious. It is Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi of ISIS. He has taken a JV band of terrorists to Varsity Caliphate champions in a few short months.

    Putin took Crimea while McConnell only took the Senate.

    If someone offered me Crimea or the Senate of the USA, I'd take the latter.

    I don't know, the Senate has Harry Reid in it and a bunch of other leftwing dolts.

    Crimea only has sheep and chickens. Which are naturally more intelligent than Harry, and far less obsessed with the Koch Brothers too.

    OMG...

    I wish someone would go to the Time website and read what the "Person of the Year" means. It has nothing to do with good and evil, whether it's right or left, but who made the most impact on society that year. Hitler made here three times, Churchill four I think as well as Barrack Obama, the Beatles and Ed Sullivan.

    I go along with this trend. In Europe and Canada Putin has been major news, he invaded Crimea and Ukraine, the first European invasion since WWII...and got away with it!

    If anything, his appearance might wake up some people to the real threat in this world.

    Sheep and chickens are worth a hell of a lot more than all the politicians in Washington combined let alone the senate.

    The polls are useless they don't matter. It's probably a big joke inside the TIME offices. They already know who they are going to choose. I'm guessing Ebola Doctors and Nurses. maybe Musk. This is like the school questions, pick and choose what doesn't belong.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.
