MacDailyNews Take: If only Woz had won “Dancing With The Stars.”


  1. I voted for General Stanley McChrystal, if it weren’t for him and the men and women who volunteer, you wouldn’t have the freedom to nominate Steve Jobs, Chinese worker, the Republican Party “Party of NO!” (although the Dems don’t need any Republican to vote for their crap, the Dems can pass everything without a single Republican vote, be it in the Senate or the House of Representatives… hmmm, appears some Dems have joined the Party of NO making them more bipartisan then Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid’s BS.)

    Now go ahead and flame me, you have that freedom, thanks to General Stanley McChrystal and the soldiers he leads… and the person I voted for as Person of the Year!

  2. The biased left-leaning Time Magazine will give it to Obama regardless of your vote or the following fact:

    Obama Job Approval Falls to New Low at 44%

    24% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -18.

    What the difference between Usain Bolt and Nancy Pelosi? One can run out of town the fastest and the other ought to be the first one run out of town.

  3. I’m with Rot’nApple, definitely General McChrystal on behalf of the US Military!

    I’d go for the Republican “Party of NO”. Someone’s got to say NO to all the unconstitutional spending going on!

  4. How about “The American Small Business Owner” who will eventually, despite the government’s best attempts to thwart them, bring the economy back to strength.

  5. Steve Jobs has had my vote since 1983. A giant hero. A bright Light in this world. Typed with 27″ splendid dazzling iMac i7 screen, airtuning best music on the planet throughout house. Steve’s work has brought the best of everything to me. Magical miracles.

  6. I can’t believe that had the gall to nominate those government mother f*****s for “person of the year”!!!


    You, my friend, are a genuinely clueless human being.

  7. Everyone, vote for the creator of Apple: Steve Jobs!
    Without him, I would never have had such a great computer!

    Just imagine yourself typing on the old crappy PC
    and M$ operation system with NO stolen features from the Mac!

    Nothing to add.
