Bush Not Listed As Among 100 Most Influential by Time

Time Magazine reportedly is putting out their list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World and left out George Bush. They did include Queen Elizabeth, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and numerous entertainers.

I’m not sure if ranking Queen Elizabeth and Brad Pitt as more influential than Bush is more an example of how much influence George Bush has lost, or more an example of the superficiality of the mass media. I really can’t blame conservatives like Ed Morrissey for mocking this. Regardless of what we think of George Bush, he is more influential than a powerless monarch, those who seek his job, and, even if her show was renewed, more influential than Tina Fey. After all, Bush is the Commander Guy.

It will be interesting to see if the article provides their criteria for inclusion, as well as who made the list in previous years.

    Time magazine is no longer among the 100 most influential publications in the world, that is one thing this superficial infotainment issue proves. Probably left out the Pope and the Dalai Lama too.
