Modi Drops From Lead in TIME’s Person of the Year Poll

Can anyone name any lasting impact any of these idiots protesting…well…nothing… have had in Ferguson… or anywhere else around the country?
People REALLY think that they were somehow “influential” this year?
So NOTHING more important happened, and NO ONE was more important? (We’ll overlook for that “person” is singular, not plural. Is there even any sort of “leader” to the random bunch of thugs and opportunistic professional protesters involved?)
