SELF-AGGRANDISING BULLSHITTER IN SELF-AGGRANDISING BULLSHIT SHOCKER!

Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!

The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6.

If this is who we are or who we are becoming, I have wasted 40 years of my life. Until now it was not possible for me to conceive of an American President capable of such an outrageous assault on truth, a free press or the first amendment.

There's a new book out by Fergal Keane, its main thrust being that were it not for the common language and culture we'd be viewing the USA on a similar level to the Congo or North Korea. Outside of the coastal cities, utterly alien.
