A Garbage List

What does it mean when a list of Top 100 most influential people excludes the most influential person in the world? It means it's garbage, nonsense, not worth the paper it's printed on (hmm, someone needs to come up with a phrase more appropriate for our cyberage). Which is what Time magazine's latest Time 100 list is. Evidentally, Oprah Winfrey and Tina Fey are more influential than President Bush. So what if the latter controls the most powerful nation, has the most imposing military in the world, has to ensure the continued success of the global economy and has at his disposal to blow up half the world. Tina Fey is funny, and evidentally that makes her more important.
