Snubbing The Big Snub

Must be a slow news day because Drudge is making a big deal (“The Big Snub”) over Time Magazine leaving George Bush off its list of 100 most influential.

Now it’s obvious Bush – though still commander-in-chief of the world’s most powerful military – doesn’t quite have the clout he had a few years ago, but Time…? Who cares what Time Magazine thinks? Does actually anybody read it anymore? Even at the dentist I prefer the guilty pleasure of People. Time is just dead weight. I don’t have a clue what they’re doing or writing unless I read about it on the Drudge Report – and even then I don’t pay much attention. Time Magazine is a weekly news magazine – about as relevant to our lives as a triceratops.
