Jeez louise, can I get you two a napkin or something?
Two *ahem* oral personalities wax lyrical over the man who should have been Time's Man Of The Year instead of that icky Putin guy:
"You know, he imprisoned his political opponents. There have been a number of highly suspicious murders," Romney said on Beck's radio show. "He has squelched public dissent and free press. And to suggest that someone like that is the Man of the Year is really disgusting. I'm just appalled."
"Clearly General Petraeus is the person, or one of a few people, who would certainly merit that designation," the former Massachusetts governor added.
Rival presidential candidate John McCain also said Wednesday he disagreed with the choice.
“I noticed that Time Magazine made President Putin the Time Magazine ‘Man of the Year,’” McCain said, according to NBC. “I understand that probably, but my man of the year is one Gen. David Petraeus, our general who has brought success in Iraq.”
Oh, my! Such a manly man cannot be denied! (And I bet he smells nice, too!) Nay, sirrah! MAN OF THE CENTURY, if not ***MAN OF THE GODDAMN TOTALITY OF HUMAN HISTORY!!!***(read that line as if it was said by James Earl Jones)
Seriously - how long do we have until the inevitable calls for Petraeus as Vice President, if not Glorious People's Leader For Life? (I'm cruisin' to get my ass censured by the Senate as it is, so I'll be glad to work on making his Enemies List before the fact...)
