Time POTY 2012
 
Time Magazine's Person of the Year 2012 goes to Barack Obama. Agree or disagree?

I think it's pretty lame. He just wasn't that influential. They're just caught up in the re-election victory...so obviously biased. Should have went to Malala Yousefzai instead. Now there's someone who actually brought a lot of attention and inspiration to a global cause.

Here's the 9 person shortlist:

Barack Obama
Malala Yousefzai
Bill Clinton
Hilary Clinton
Mohammed Morsi
Tim Cook
Marissa Mayer
Undocumented Americans
Higgs Boson particle


My take:
Barack Obama - lolnah
Malala Yousefzai - YES
Bill Clinton - meh
Hilary Clinton - nope
Mohammed Morsi - lol
Tim Cook - Time, are you fucking ******ed?
Marissa Mayer - no, but she is my MILF Of The Decade
Undocumented Americans - more influential than Obama
Higgs Boson particle - like Obama, a lot of hype, but no results yet

Definitely should have been Malala.

Bush got chosen in 2000 and 2004, so why shouldn't Obama get picked twice?

"You" won a few years ago.

Obama did a lot this year. I mean he won a tough election against a candidate that EVERYONE loved.

I'd go with that Higgs Boson particle just because it's not a person.

tl;dr: while the rest of us waste our lives away in The Pit, this 14-15yo girl is advocating for women's rights to education in Taliban controlled area of Pakistan. They shot her in the head to shut her up but she survived and is recovering in England, where world leaders are giving her a shitload of support, rendering the Taliban's move a complete backfire.
