This will make neocon heads spin. Interesting choice. Should sell magazines.

I haven't been paying attention - who did the neocons want for person of the year and how will the selection make their heads spin? (Do they say "he ain't MY pope!" a lot or something?)

Francis has been VERY liberal in his teachings since achieving the papacy. So much so that Mr. Limbaugh has been actively dismissing him on-air.

Zed, in our state, the Governor, Sam Brownback is a staunch catholic, member of Opus Dei, and a supplysider who has done everything the Pope's Statement railed against. As already posted, Rush, Palin, and many of the neocon talking heads accused the Pope of being a communist and liberal. The social issues wing of the Republican Party views the Catholic Church as an ally. And my guess would be Ted Cruze.

Nobody wanted Cruz for person of the year.

I have no particular problem with the Pope. He's been influential this year, and that's as good a selection as any. Good thing my faith structure lets God set the faith agenda and not some person. And until He comes back, His revelation to me (and _most_ protestants) is fixed. There is some argument about what that revelation means in house of course.

They have done some weird picks - I think maybe picking "healthcare.gov" might have been a good choice as well, or maybe something like "laid off government worker".

I think something related to Iran could also have been a topic.

But I suspect the Pope would have been it no matter what he said. It's a new pope and several hundred million people care. A lot.

There's also this deal where stores often have an item marked on "sale" for 90% of the year, but (at least in some places) to call it a "sale" item, they have to charge regular price every so often.
