Time to update the resume

I'm TIME magazine's Person of the Year!

I rather think that the fellow with the yellow shirt and the guitar is supposed to be me.

Seriously, how pathetic is this? It's not as though Time's never copped out shamelessly before (Roosevelt as man of the century and Giuliani in 2001 spring to mind) but this is spectacular. I also suspect that it'l be very hard for the magazine to follow next year. Time's progressive slide away from making choices that might possibly offend anyone anywhere has finally reached its natural culmination-I can't imagine a more timid, safe pick for them to hide behind.
