After Pepper Spray wasn’t named the winner in 2011, who even cares?

The shortlist is here. TIME’s Person of the Year will be either …

• Bashar Assad, President of Syria
• Jeff Bezos, Amazon Founder
• Ted Cruz, Texas Senator
• Miley Cyrus, Singer
• Pope Francis, Leader of the Catholic Church
• Barack Obama, President of the United States
• Hassan Rouhani, President of Iran
• Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services
• Edward Snowden, N.S.A. Leaker
• Edith Windsor, Gay rights activist

Edie Windsor! Let’s just give it to the sitting president again, right?

Or, TIME could give it to the real Person of the Year, which they hinted at unknowingly in this Page Not Found message: THE GLITCH.

• Uninspired TIME Editors Award Obama ‘Person of the Year 2012’
• TIME’s Person of the Year 2011: The Protester Is the Right Call
TIME’s Person of the Year 2010: Mark Zuckerberg

Great work by the TODAY Show on this poll:
