2012 Crikeys: pick our person (and arsehat!) of the year, plus hot pollies

We're hopeful that 2012 -- and humanity -- won't end as the Mayans predicted. But in a year of presidential elections, royal commissions, media inquiries, hurricanes, cinema and school shootings, journo redundancies and scandals -- who is the person that should be declared this year's best? And which absolute arsehat deserves the uncoveted title?

    Alan Jones has been left out as a Arsehat option on your Survey Monkey thing.

    Where is Pell’s arsehole’s hat

    I wanted to vote for Alan Jones as Arsehat!

    You missed James Ashby in the last category…

    A little sad to see Judith Sloan, aka most light-weight economics contributor in the country, didn’t get the gong. But I guess there was some good competition.

    A new ‘Kamikaze’ category for Clive Palmer?

    Hello everybody, just to clarify, Alan Jones is now on the survey, it was just a mistake (made by me!) that he was absent.

    Damn you Amber.
    I was looking for a whole missing category.
    Namely… “Sexiest Shock Jock”.
    Now I’m feeling distinctly let down.

    So many arsehats, only one vote. Had to be Meryl …

    Sexiest pollie ?
    Who cares ?
    Are you in the press gallery ?
