Poor Mitt Romney. Not only did he lose the election, but now GQ is really trying to put the final nail in his political coffin, naming the GOP nominee as its least influential person of 2012.

"Voting for Romney is like hooking up with the last single person at the bar at 4 a.m.," GQ said. (Hey, at least Romney got to take a trip to Disneyland, right?) Trying not to be too partisan, Michelle Obama also made the list, coming in at No. 7. The reason? Americans are still fat. "You tried, Mrs. Obama. You really did ... Now why not join the winning team and indulge in this delicious pint of Haagen-Dazs Caramel Cone ice cream?" GQ suggested.

Others on the list represent pop culture, media and political movements. Amanda Bynes and Madonna were its numbers two and three. Keith Olbermann (12), Jim Lehrer (23) and Tucker Carlson (25) represented the varying ideologies of the media. And "the remaining scraps of Occupy Wall Street" came in at No. 20.
