Time Magazine on Wednesday named US president-elect Barack Obama its 2008 "Person of the Year."
Why did he receive the coveted award?
According to the newsweekly: "For having the confidence to sketch an ambitious future in a gloomy hour, and for showing the competence that makes Americans hopeful he might pull it off".
Now, that's the most ridiculous line of reasoning I've ever heard! But what's even more pathetic than that: Time Magazine is not even embarrassed to issue such an asinine statement like that!
