TIME is George's Bitch

GWB is the Time Man of the Year.

I'm not kidding; why do you ask?

This excerpt from Reuters is particularly enlightening, in terms of underscoring Time's bitchiosity:

President Bush's bold, uncompromising leadership and his clear-cut election victory made him Time magazine's ``Person of the Year'' for 2004, its managing editor said on Sunday.

Time chose Bush ``for sticking to his guns (literally and figuratively), for reshaping the rules of politics to fit his 10-gallon-hat leadership style and for persuading a majority of voters this time around that he deserved to be in the White House for another four years,'' Jim Kelly wrote in the magazine.

For those of you who are confused about some of the statements above, here's a key:


"uncompromising leadership".......ignoring (and sometimes mocking) anyone he perceives to disagree with him

"clear-cut election victory"..........mandate--oh, wait--holy directive--no, that's not it: terrifying narrow victory (yeah, that's it)

"sticking to his guns"........inflexibly maintaining his misguided course even in the face of new and alarming information; ignoring reality

"reshaping the rules of politics"........doing whatever the hell he wants, despite having promised to collaborate with moderates and liberals
