Putin is "Time" magazine Person of the Year---neocons get robbed !!

So an American didn't win "Time" magazine Person of the Year? Wait a second...but I thought we ARE the world...the rest of the countries are sub-human, terrorist, primitive, culturally-backward and overall inferior?
That's not the case? Huh??

But we have Kenny Chesney, NASCAR and Wrangler Jeans! I demand a recount! (wait a minute, we all know how recounts turn out - see Florida 2000 Election)

The neocons are screaming in disbelief about Time's choice. The average far right-winger has donned the lemming suit once again and is following the right-wing pundits' proposed selection of General David Petraeus--the man who singlehandedly saved Iraq from the "last throes of the insurgency" (in real terms, the general who saved the White House from further embarassment). Not sure exactly how much of a role General Petraeus is playing in the decline in violence in Iraq. Are we to discount the efforts by those brave men and women dodging bullets? And wasn't it the White House and Fox News who were touting the increase in solidarity among common Iraqi citizens against their own fellow disenfranchised national religious insurgent neighbors...errr...Al-Qaeda?

Forget Petraeus and Putin. Both men certainly had enormous influence on world affairs. But have we so quickly forgotten about the man who brought us to this point in history, who masterminded the fear and propaganda campaign after 9/11? The architect of the "Iraq has WMD/Iraq is behind 9/11"...The man who succeeded in dividing the country in such a way that hasn't been seen since the Civil War? The genius that came up with, "you're either with us or against us"...still no idea?

Karl "Joseph Goebbels" Rove!!!

That's right ladies and gentlemen, this is the man responsible, primarily, for the following events: this blog, the divisiveness in our country, the unilateral and dangerously arrogant foreign policy of "The Decider", the constant fear of the unknown, the relinquished and surrendered efforts to capture bin Laden, the unnecessary bodily searches at your nearest airport, the illegal wiretapping program, the leaking of Valerie Plame's identity, allowing right-wing religious zealots to hijack the Republican Party, the pre-arranged firing of 8 U.S. Attorneys who wouldn't agree to shredding the Constitution, the planting of lunatics among peaceful protests to highlight civil unrest, the spying on normal, ordinary citizens, the elimination of habeas corpus, Guatanamo-ville, Operation Rendition, the idea of putting Saddam and 51 other Iraqi government officials on a deck of playing cards so that the Hannity and O'Reilly lemmings could understand and play "Shock and Awe" together, the fun and colorful "Terror Alert" seen on Fox News Channel until they realized that even the neocons were getting annoyed with it, the advent of Anthrax (not the muscial group), Bush winning the 2000 Presidential Election, and quite possibly, the curse of Steve Bartman (guy who interfered and caught the infamous foul ball in Cubs playoff game in 2003---okay, a bit of an exaggeration there...thought I could sneak one under the radar).

Quite a resume'. And this is a mere snapshot. This guy would make Hitler say, " that IS friggin' evil !!!"

So, Time, I am disappointed, too. I really thought you would have given this a bit more thought. Karl Rove has supposedly retired this year and rode his black horse back to Mordor (click here to view Karl's front lawn).

Perhaps we will someday honor this wicked man-- who in an effort to "protect America and spread democracy" did everything to the contrary.
