Sandra Fluke is among the 40 contenders for Time Magazine’s Person of the Year. 2012 was the year in which losers, have-nots, and the immature combined to reelect an unsuccessful (by customary standards) president. Accordingly, Fluke would make an ideal Person of the Year for 2012.
I also think that Time should name Lilly Ledbetter its Person of the Year for 2008 in view of her service as Barack Obama’s designated female whiner in that year’s presidential campaign. The award would be late, of course. But the right to be late is what Lilly Ledbetter stands for. If necessary, Congress could pass a law permitting Time a do-over.
