The Least Influential People of 2012 (GQ)
1. Mitt Romney
Was anyone inspired by Mitt Romney? Did anyone vote enthusiastically for Mitt Romney? Of course not. Voting for Romney is like hooking up with the last single person at the bar at 4 a.m. The only successful thing he did this year was embody every black stand-up comedian's impression of a white person. Thank God the election's over. No more endless photos of Mitt staring winsomely off-camera with that attempted smile on his face. No more glaring campaign mishaps week after week after week. No more labored media efforts to make him look like anything other than Sheldon Adelson's pampered money Dumpster. Good-bye, Mitt. I hope you enjoy the rest of your life quietly ensconced at Lake Winnipesaukee, blissfully ignorant of the plight of anyone who doesn't have $300 million squirreled away in the Bahamas.

2. Great read, but a few of them were unfair.
Yes, Madonna needs to stop trying to package herself like a teenager. Honey, those days are long over.
However, she can still strut her stuff over 50 and going with her strengths would still pack audiences. You go, girl.
Michelle Obama was fighting a losing battle against epidemic obesity, but to call her "least influential" is disingenuous at best, overly political at worst. Shame on you guys.
Keith Olbermann belongs on that list only because he's all trussed up like a stuffed roast by contract strings. Cut the strings and he'll be influential enough for anyone's list.
The rest of them seemed to be right on the money.
