GQ just released their list of various politicians, sports figures, musicians and Hollywood figures who they consider to be the least influential, and there are more than a few inclusions that just don’t sit right.
Forget that she’s the first lady, Mrs. O is actually somebody worth idolizing.
Seeing that her entry (number seven) is accompanied by a picture of her snarfing down Haagen Daz straight out of the container in a bath robe, it’s clear that the compiler of this list merely dislikes her vendetta against fast food.
Then there’s Madonna in her cheerleading uniform, using one hand to hold a microphone and the other to push her walker. It may be a funny image, but I certainly know of more than a few
fun-loving queens people under the age of 40 who would still jump off a cliff if she told them to.
I could say the same for Mitt Romney (#1), Guy Fieri (#11), Dwight Howard (#4), and Ryan Lochte (#8). I mean, these aren’t exactly my role models, but they do all currently have a lot of fans who hang onto their every word and action.
“25 People The Editor of GQ Has No Respect For” is really a more fitting title.
So you found The Newsroom pretentious, did you really have to put Aaron Sorkin below “Whoever directed John Carter” and “Sandusky’s lawyer?” Douche.
