Congrats, Obama Haters...You've Got GQ on Your Side

Posted By on Tue, Nov 29, 2011 at 5:00 PM

GQ's year-end "Least Influential People Alive" list by Deadspin contributor Drew Magary is an entertaining read, especially for the brutal takedown of MSNBC's Ed Schultz: "Hannity is a piece of shit, but at least he can get your average 85-year-old, gay-hating, gold-hoarding grandma to tune in. Then there are pundits like Schultz." However, it might surprise some people who earned to top spot as least influential, ahead of Tiger Woods' former caddy and failed-rapture-predictor Harold Camping. Congrats/condolences to America's most prominent undercover Muslim, Barack Obama:

Okay, so we're cheating a bit with this one. He did order the raid that wiped Osama bin Laden off the face of the earth. But then he used that surplus of political capital to let everyone in Washington stick a boot in his ass. This is a man who should be the most transformational figure of the century. Hell, he promised to be that. Instead he wields all the power of a substitute teacher at night school.

I thought for sure the lawyer who couldn't get a conviction for Casey Anthony might have earned the top spot, but at least GQ's choice should please some of the cranks in our comment section.
