Really?Â No, really??Â Â Did anyone see that coming?Â I mean after all, TIME’s Washington Bureau Chief is now VP-elect Joe Biden’s Press Secretary.
I think this puts Obama on the cover more than JFK, all of the Popes and Jesus combined.
In The Tank.
UPDATE:Â Jonah Goldberg shares my cynicism.
Why didn’t Time consider God for having the wisdom and compassion to deliver Obama to us? Or, for the more secular minded, why didn’t he thank the gamma rays that ignited the life-spark that ultimately created single-celled life-forms which, eventually through the magic of evolution, brought us the One?
UP-UPDATE (from Dan):Â OK, I kind of disagree with Bruce on this one.Â He’s right that the media has been in the tank for Obama, but, well, given that he did win the presidential election, he pretty much earned the “Man of the Year” title, though, I will note that TIME has ignored some Republican presidents when they won re-election (or election).Â And I recall that they dissed the real man of the decade as the 1980s drew to a close.
