    “Narenda Modi wins poll, but won’t be person of the year.”

    Of course not. He’s a pro-market politician. If he were a proud nationalist socialist like Hitler (1938 winner), or a nationalist socialist pretending to be an internationalist like Stalin (1939 winner), it would all be good.

    OK, it’s a complete rain-out day, and I’m doing absotively, posilutely nothing, am bored out of my skull, and, at 1:53 PM, we still don’t have an article from the site host to entertain me. WTF?

    I hate it when I see people stop believing in the American dream! Of course, you should fluff off the rest of your afternoon.

    “Miller Could Get Shot At Closing For The Yankees”
    Is “Miller” a black guy leaving a bar in NYC at last call? Have Jesse and Al been informed?

    I’m beginning to think that writing a book and doing 2-3 quality posts a day on a blog are mutually exclusive.

    No, the problem is that Mr Miller is a white guy, and, therefore, if he gets a shot at closing for the Yankees, Messrs Jackson and Sharpton will know that the only reason he’s getting a shot is because the Yankees are raaaaacist.

    Why, did you know that the baseball itself is white?

    You should try holding down a 10½ hour a day job and doing just one (supposedly) high-quality post a day . . . .
