Hey, come on now, "Hotel Transylvania" was excellent. Maybe Sandler should just stick to voice acting. :P

You're telling me the man that single-handedly got Obama reelected wasn't influential?

Least influential? I've heard of all those people, they haven't heard of me.

Ergo, I am even less influential than them.

In fairness, they did put this as their final "Least influential" slide:

Seriously. Romney did what a year's worth of Occupy Whatever couldn't do - bring the issues of economic fairness and severe economic disparity into laser-sharp focus.

Don't cry for Mitt, Diogenes
The truth is he never left you
All through his wild days
His mad existence
He kept his money
Don't keep your distance

This list makes no sense. I would think that there is about a seven billion way tie for least influential.

Nonsense, he made a very large number of people hate him with very little besides his own personality and normal actions as the reason. He made millions hate him just by being himself. That is incredibly influential.

Are you kidding? Mitt Romney not only directly influenced countless hundreds of Internet memes, he influenced tens of millions of people to vote against him.

I know it's easy to kick the losing candidate while he's down, but he got over 58 million votes.

I believe the point was that he didn't get votes for himself, but rather votes for his jersey color, and votes against the guys in the other jersey color. That's not the same as 58m votes for him.

I wouldn't say "single-handedly": Mourdock and Akin definitely helped. Paul Ryan even pitched in!

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

Uh, actually all evidence seems to point to Romney was fully aware of the plight of the poor/middle class, he just didn't give a fark. There's a big difference there.

These are the same kind of people that write articles on the "sexiest man alive" without checking all 3.5 billion men on the planet to insure the one they select is actually the sexiest.

Undoubtedly a lot of his votes were just votes for the Republican candidate, or against Obama. But the *least influential* person on the planet? You'd think that first debate would at least have made him "notable" in some way in that it reminded Obama that there was still a race to run.

Stop having Daily Caller employees harass the president when he's trying to finish a sentence, and stop dressing like a Dead Poets Society villain, and maybe people will take you seriously.

Seriously, though, I do enjoy most of Drew Magary's stuff.

You want smarmy? Read Gregg Easterbrook's weekly football column.

After reading that poorly written and rather cheerless "article", I can only assume that it's a matter of time before Gentleman's Quarterly finds itself rebranded as www.dailybeast.com/gq.html

Speaking of not influential. You're not an influential writer if you can make a fairly liberal guy like me feel sorry for Mitt Romney.

The least influential magazine must be GQ, since they confused "least influential" with "biggest asshole".

Nah.

He had to have influenced a few hundred thousand to not sit on their asses this election season with his "47%" comments.

This just reminds me how glad I am that Mitt lost. His victory would've been very influential in that it would set the precedent that if you have enough money you don't have to release your tax returns, present an economic plan, or even hold back the utter contempt you feel for half the country and still win the presidency.

Lisa Berenger is less influential than any of these people.
Elmer Winnicutt is less influential than any of these people.
Bernie Kissinger is less influential than any of these people.
Gerald McWhiff is less influential than any of these people.
Louis Mellon-Jaspers is less influential than any of these people.
Llewellyn Mariconne is less influential than any of these people.

Hell, Angus H. Jones is less influential than any of these people.

16. WHOEVER DIRECTED JOHN CARTER

What? Of all the things to biatch about regarding that movie, the directing is one of the two things that didn't suck (the other being animation, that dog especially was cool as hell and I want one). Even the actors that were terrible gave buyable performances even against the green-screen, that's a pretty clear sign of a good to outstanding director.

Writing was mediocre and the marketing was outright terrible, and the editing could have used a lot of work... but the direction was quite good. Is "director" the only title associated with movies that the GQ people know about? Aren't they essentially a damned entertainment magazine?

//Admittedly sticking OWS on there was funny, if not necessarily correct.
