Bad guys dominate voting in Islam Online's Person of the Year tally

In a list dominated by villains, brigands, and cut-throats, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah is leading early voting in Islam Online's Person of the Year Internet poll.

Nasrallah has collected an astonishing 69 percent of the votes so far. In a very distant second is Hamas leader Ismael Haniya with 15 percent. In third is the world's most prominent Holocaust denier, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with a paltry 7 percent.

Yes, I'm aware there could be some Freeping going on here organized by the more strident followers of Islam.

Here are the other Islam Online Person of the Year candidates: Hugo Chavez, Donald Rumsfeld, (Malaysian President) Abdullah Ahmed Badawi, (Lebanese Prime Minister) Fuad el Siniora, Pope Benedict XVI, (Bangladeshi financier) Muhammad Yunus, Ayatollah Sistani, Saddam Hussein, and Kim Jong Il.

I voted for the Pope--he's at 1.5 percent.
