Sarah Palin Blasts Obama, "Irrelevancy" of Time Person of the Year

by at . Comments

Sarah Palin went on Fox News last night to blast President Barack Obama and specifically Time's choice of him as the magazine's 2012 Person of the Year.

No word if Palin voted for Kim Jong Un in the mag's reader poll.

Questioning President Obama's record in an election year beyond "driving us over a fiscal cliff," Palin said, "I think there is some irrelevancy there."

Palin was not alone in criticizing the pick, to be sure, or suggesting that Time is becoming increasingly more ridiculous. But who should've won instead?

The short list of runners-up for the Time POY distinction:

  • The late Malala Yousafzai, symbol of the struggle for global women’s rights
  • Mohamed Morsi, Egypt's new president
  • Renowned physicist Fabiola Gianotti
  • Apple CEO Tim Cook

What do you think? Should Obama have won?
