Influential Men

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on October 21, 2008


It is amazing what gets your attention when you should be looking for a job. The yahoo page had a link to a poll of the “49 most influential men of 2008”. Polls like this are usually rubbish, but there is a post to be written. This is a good excuse to put some pictures up.

I don’t have the patience for all 49. This is one of those deals where you have to click on a link for every name on the list. That is a lot of work, especially for men I have never heard of. I seldom watch TV or pay full price for movies, so a lot of celebrities go under the radar. It will be fun to see how many I have heard of. There is a profile about each man, but that is another click, and wait for the popupdropdown ad to clear. This is going to be a lot of work just to get to the top ten.

If you can’t say anything good about someone, don’t say anything at all.

1- Barack Obama… Hype is color blind.
2- Steve Jobs
3- Micheal Phelps

4- Robert Downey, Jr…Rehab does work sometimes.
5- Stephen Colbert

6- Gordon Ramsey…This is the first one I totally don’t know. Mr. Ramsey is wearing a chef’s outfit, which is a clue.
7- Christian Bale
8- Rob Kay…Mr. Kay designs video games. If you see Mr. Kay…

9- Cristiano Ronaldo…Mr. Ronaldo kicks soccer balls. and has an irish cousin named Ronald O’McDonald.
10- John McCain…Bless his heart.

11-Lorne Michaels….Mr. Michaels gets points for staying alive this long.

12-Tom Ford… Mr. Ford is a fashion designer. No word on what kind of car he drives, or whether he pardoned Mr. Nixon.

13-Mark Zuckerberg…Mr. Zuckerman invented Facebook, and is glad this list is not in alphabetical order.
14-Dana White… Mr. White fronts something called “Ultimate Fighting Challenge. One more I have heard of and I quit. It doesn’t matter if I have seen his show.
15-Jon Stewart…Mr. Stewart is a comedian/polical commenter.
