My person of the year is Senator John McCain. He iced the honor last week when he hammered the insipid Al Franken for being disrespectful to Joseph Lieberman on the Senate floor. McCain smacked Franken good because the former actor known as Stuart Smalley would not give Lieberman a few extra moments to finish his remarks on health care, a major breach of Senate etiquette.
Earlier this year, McCain told the world the Iranian government was punishing its own people and urged President Obama to support dissidents inside Iran. The president did not and McCain made a big deal out of it. Good for him.
