Seriously, we laughed out loud at the backhanded way Bill O'Reilly praised Time managing editor Richard Stengel for picking boring old Ben Bernanke as Time's 2009 'Entity of the Year'. The guy knows how to undermine in a funny way!

Ha: "There he is in a beard." So good we were thinking about just stealing it outright.

Anyway: Bill has a point, and for once it does not sadden and enrage us. Although we know just enough about economics to know that we have no idea if Bernanke is a savior or a villain, we too salute Time for having the straight-laced cojones to place on their cover someone a large percentage of America is going to mistake for Jeffery Tambor with a beard.
