We’re so lame, we probably think this story is about us

This is flat out stupid.

It’s as if nobody at Time wanted to make a stand or look like they have an opinion on anything in the world. They could have chosen Ahmadinejad or Hugo Chavez or, hell, even Taylor Hicks (and yes that would have sucked but less so than picking “you”, and by “you” I don’t mean you in particular because I love and respect you in that special blogger/reader above-the-sweater no-tongues kind of way).

“For seizing the reins of the global media, for founding and framing the new digital democracy, for working for nothing and beating the pros at their own game, Time’s Person of the Year for 2006 is you,” the magazine’s Lev Grossman wrote.

Jesus. Grossman sounds like the kind of guy who could work synergy, paradigm, and tipping point seamlessly into one contentless wankeriffic sentence.

Congratulations Time: asked to pick you favorite color you chose ‘clear’.
