That Putin Person of the Year

Time magazine has just named Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin Person of the Year. I was semi-outraged at that until I remembered that he shares that title with such fine and upstanding, contributing citizens as the Ayatollah Khomeni and...Herr Adolf Hitler.

Now I mind...NOT SO MUCH, to paraphrase Putin's former countryman, Borat from Kazakhstan.

I can certainly see it. As you mentioned Khomeni was a past PotY (ok, at that point it was probably still Man of the Year).

Given his well orchestrated power play, maneuvers that let him keep his power while still "following" the law. Moves that I'm sure Cheney studies for pointers.
