In what feels like the longest fifteen minutes of fame ever, “War on Women” figurehead Sandra Fluke is up for consideration to be chosen as Time Magazine’s 2012 Person of the Year.
With 39 competitors (most of whom actually accomplished something) and 73% of Time’s own readers voting “No Way,” poor Sandra’s facing an uphill battle. Maybe that has something to do with the reality-challenged case Kate Pickert makes for the Left’s wannabe Joan of Arc:
While Time editors will choose the Person of the Year, people can vote on the selections. Voting closes on Dec. 12 and the winner will be announced on Dec. 14.
Last year, Time’s Person of the Year was “the protester,” in 2010 they selected Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and in 2009 Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke received the honor.
Rush Limbaugh ripped her, prompting faux outcry from the left, all the way up to President Obama, who seized on the incident as proof that the right was waging some sort of war on women, as opposed to a battle against pathetic dependency on government. Obama called her personally, then used her as a campaign surrogate.
Leave it to Time to make her its Person of the Year. Of course, in the year of the dependent American voter, they might be right.
