swagandpassion says: I'm glad Obama is person of the year, but what clout does TIME have? Is this the social/political version of the most beautiful person in the world? Or can Obama say being chosen is a referendum of himself and his overall administration?
» SFB says: Well, Hitler once won the award, so I wouldn’t necessarily call it an award for the “most beautiful” — probably more of the “most important,” good or bad. Obama won a second term, so it was probably a referendum on his work. — Ernie @ SFB
We missed SNL last night, but we have to say that this clip really says a lot about the Time Person of the Year situation. While making Julian Assange look as creepy as possible, SNL gets a lot of jabs in at the oddity of Time picking a boring guy who runs a company that gives away your private data vs. an endlessly fascinating dude who tries to reveal corruption. Well-played, SNL.
