I just received my copy of this weeks Time magazine. How many of the people on this weeks cover can you recognize? Most people in the U.S. can readily identify the faces of Al Gore, Tony Dungy, Leonardo DiCaprio, Barack Obama, and of course, my favorite, Tyra Banks. Now I have nothing against these people. I'd love to sit and talk with most of them for an afternoon. Okay, with you Tyra, maybe more than an afternoon. But seriously, does anyone with a full working brain think they are more influential in the world than President George W. Bush? Get real!

Most folks know I am not a real fan of W, or his administration. But this is ludicrous. Memo to Time, your title is "Most Influential in the World." Not the United States. Not Hollywood. Not the N.F.L.

Could you please explain to me how people like Tina Fey, Tyra, Elizabeth Edwards, or even Nancy Pelosi are transforming the world? I would wager all of my meager salary that most of the world has never even heard of these people who are supposedly influencing and shaping their world. Okay, maybe they have heard of Tyra, but you can be sure they are aware of President Bush, his policies, and the war in Iraq..

In one cover story, Time has confirmed what conservatives have been saying for some time. There is indeed a liberal bias in our media and it is difficult for a conservative to get a fair shake. Shame on you Time Warner!
