GQ Magazine: Obama Among 'Least Influential' Figures of 2013

Sunday, 24 Nov 2013 11:15 PM

By Greg Richter

President Barack Obama's inability to get along with Republicans in Congress has brought him the distinction of being the 17th least influential person of 2013, according to GQ magazine.

Author Drew Magary said he has "spent the majority of this man's presidency watching bad things happen, then hearing a thoughtful speech about how we gotta make sure the bad things never happen again, and then watching as nothing gets done."

Magary said he wants noted statistician Nate Silver to figure out whom he should vote for in the next election "so that I don't end up casting my ballot for a very eloquent hat stand."

Also making the list was National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, who revealed national security secrets but failed in his mission to have Americans civil liberties restored. Instead, Snowden has led the U.S. government and the media in a cat and mouse game as he hides in Russia working in tech support.

The sexting New York mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner was No. 3 on the list. Paula Deen, who got in trouble when it was revealed she had used the N-word, was No. 2. Topping the list: former NBA great and current wannabe diplomat Dennis Rodman who has been cozying up to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
