I doubt Time will choose the Unemployed Worker, for obvious reasons, no? I,however, would choose that one.

Time has done many cop-outs, but a good one would be "The Tea Partier"

When I looked at the list, I immediately said to myself: "It'll be the 'unemployed American'". And I agree with Fiddytree that the "tea partier" should be on there.

Yes, my vote would be the Tea Partier.
Glenn Beck....Oh my gawd wouldn't that irritate Soros, Ko, etc? Why isn't Soros on the list?
Palin..oohhh the liberal Palin haters would have their panties all in a bunch. Especially women like Joy Behart.
The Koch bros.......All lefties would have a fit.
I predict none of them will win but it would be a good laugh.

It will probably be the Unemployed American. Although who knows it could be you again. I would like to see Colbert and Stewart win it, just for the laughs. Or who knows maybe Robin Williams could win it.
