Who should be the Person of the Year? (POLL)

This morning I was watching "This Week" on ABC, and towards the end of the show, they were discussing possibilities for the Time Person of the Year, which I presume will be named soon. Some were President Bush, Former Presidents Bush and Clinton, Patrick Fitzgerald, and "Mother Nature".  George Stephanopolis mentioned the Google Guys.  But I want to know what you think.

Jack Murtha Hands Down
Murtha's appearance on Face The Nation was a combination of Eugene McCarthy's courageous stand against Bush's war and Walter Cronkite's famous "Moment."

Mother Nature?  That just suggests whats been happening to the environment is all natural.  As if giving her person of the year will satisfy her and soften he a bit.  

The Google guys?  If it were PC magazine maybe.

GW?  Please

Clinton and papa Bush?  Why, because baby Bush picked them?

Maybe Clinton all by himself for going to that conference the other day and thumbing his nose to Bush Jr.  But thats just a starting point, he would have to expand on it.  He has a little bit of makeup to do after being Bush Jrs pawn.  For a good cause sure but pawn none the less.

Bloggers?  A bit general and doesn't really say much about this last year for real people to sink their teeth into.

Fitz? if he were to indict Rove as a baby Jesus day present.

Murtha?  He had one outburst of truth but isn't responsible for much of the problem Bush is having right now.  Lets face it, the biggest news for us is Bush's fall.  A fall we all hope will stick.  By the time Murthas voice was heard Bush was already in trouble.  

Cindy? Yeah, see she might be appropriate.  Of all the people listed which one would be the biggest slap to the face of this administration?  No, not this administration, Bush!  To them Bush and no other should person of the year, every yeat, but throw her out there and it would hurt like hell.  Bush created her by being stubborn enough to ignore her?  He could have met her once in private, in passing, and not only been done with her but if he did it right he would have gained points with a lot of people for display of humility.  He didn't give her a voice but he gave her the megaphone.  She dared to face up to him and calls it like she sees it, right or wrong.  She may not be what brings down this government but she may very well be what helped give certain people balls enough to stand up.  And thats the key, thats the only thing thats been missing for five years now, thats exactly what we need to encourage.

There may be others and I'm not much into following the whole Camp Casey thing but I think shes the best choice up to now.

Re: Sheehan
Maybe add Katrina in there.  That bitch had spunk and took a healthy bite out of the Republican ego.  I know, lots of death, destruction, and heartache.  It might seem wrong, but then Bush Jr is on the list so what the hell.  It doesn't hurt that she got the press' attention.  She grabbed 'em by the balls and shook them to their senses, maybe some of it took, maybe some of it didn't but it was still a good thing.  The M$M may have found that profit can be made by standing up.

Patrick Fitzgerald
In an era where the Republicans think they can get away with anything, Fitzgerald remained unbowed.

Hopefully, this is just the beginning.

Don't forget Ronnie Earle, either

Re: Patrick Fitzgerald
Agreed.  The comparisons to Elliot Ness and the untouchables are very true.
