12. I submitted mine, gave them an earful and did their poll
http://www.time.com/time/personoftheyear/2005/walkup /
where I voted for "Mother Nature"... partly to tweak the RW idiots whose heads are spinning over her being included ;) but mostly because in my opinion the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina, NO, etc was one of a two fold, of which Cindy was one, breaking point for the majority of the American people seeing the incompetence and uncaring of Bush and his admin. There's nothing like seeing dead bodies hunched over in thir chairs, babies weak from lack of food, bodies floating, etc and NOTHING but news of Bush "playing" to smack folks upside the head.


My submitted write in however was Cindy (... although I did tell them they should have included Fitzgerald as well) I wrote her in not just for her courage and strength but to honor our troops and echo her messages of "Why?" and "Bring our men and women in the military home now, not in 6 months+ when it will be a political move for re-election. Iraq won't be more stablized then any more then it is now whether 6 months or year... it won't stabilize until what the Iraqi insurgents see as an invasive force (US) leaves.

So which "votes" (write in or poll) will Time actually use to decide.. IF either?
