Well. Look at that. For all your (and our) pretensions of a transgressive, avant-garde, subcultural existence, turns out we're all burdened with quintessentially lumpen taste in our Time Person of the Year nominees.
Which is to say, after 24 hours of polling, your overwhelming choice for us to recommend to Time managing editor Jim Kelly as a potential Person of the Year is the safe, obvious, middle-American choice: Mother Nature. Mother — who, as Brian Williams said, should be personified on Time's cover by Bea Arthur — got a whopping 30.8 percent of the vote.
We do appreciate, though, that your second and third choices were Fabian Basabe and Andrew Krucoff.
The full results are after the jump.
And, we suppose: Go Mother Nature!
