Nuke the Punchline: Obama of the Year

Harvey over at IMAO has another straight line of the day up, and so it is time to pick the winners of the last one:

Time Magazine explained that they picked Obama as "Person of the Year" because...

#5 g: ...after naming Hitler in `38, Stalin in `39 & `42, Khrushchev in `57, Khomeini in `79 and Putin in 2007 how could they not?

#4 piratepops: ...what better way to mark the passing of the year in which the world ends than by honoring the world’s biggest failure?

#3 CarolyntheMommy: ...because it was the only way to get anyone talking about/paying attention to…. what’s the magazine called again?

#2 Dohtimes: ...the dognapper’s note told them to.

And the best punchline goes to Manolo:

Time Magazine explained that they picked Obama as "Person of the Year" because in the past they’d picked presidents and even the head of General Motors, but with this choice they got the president AND the head of GM.

Congratulations Manolo!


The best punchline for the last Nuking Politics straight line was from Harvey

"For the end of the world, Obama plans"... said Yoda cryptically.

Congratulations Harvey!


Now here's a line for you guys to ponder:

John Kerry's first act as the new Secretary of State...


  1. ...throwing the old Secretary of State over the White House fence.

    [off topic: Yay! I win!]

  2. Heinz ketchup at all state dinners.

  3. is to pipe in the Music to Mr. Ed to all his offices.
    ♬ A horse is a horse, of course, of course. ♬

  4. ...appoint the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth ambassadors to Syria, Egypt, and Libya.

  5. to publish a statement that he didn't really want to be Secretary of State, before he wanted to be Secretary of State.

  6. treaty to ban the song Mairzy Doats.
    ...have "cornball" peoples everywhere recognized as a minority deserving oppression.
    ...have all staff refer to the country he is headed to as either "Vietnam" or "a country that is not Vietnam".

  7. with Obama for lessons on bowing and apologizing.
