Tonight, the American Broadcast Company airs Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011, wherein TV's grande dame of celebrity reacharounds offers profiles of some of the most spellbinding figures of our time. This year's list includes the likes of Katy Perry (fascinating breasts), Donald Trump (fascinating hair), Simon Cowell (also fascinating breasts), Herman Cain (finds breasts fascinating), and the Kardashians (fascinatingly stupid). As a companion piece, we have compiled this list of The 10 Least Fascinating People of 2011. Think of it as a love letter to everyone who bored, bothered, or left us utterly cold over the past 12 months.
In her new role as MSNBC's junior nepotism correspondent (reporting to senior nepotism correspondent Luke Russert) Meghan McCain interviewed Michele Bachmann. Among Meghan's hard-hitting questions: What were you like high school?
"Brooklyn in general is not a fun experience for me, because I look and act nothing like Zooey Deschanel." This according to the Twitter account of parallel universe First Daughter and MSNBC Chief Mental Fingerpainterist, Meghan McCain. Are you going to take this lying down, America's Dorkalicious Fantasy Girlfriend and/or the planet's Coolest City?
Today we learned about Meghan McCain's hatred of going to work when she's been dumped and love of landing airplanes on the Las Vegas Strip. She said: "The American dream of rags to riches feels attainable the minute your airplane lands on the Strip." Uh, airplanes don't land on the Strip! So we said that we could have titled the post: "Meghan McCain Lands Airplane on Vegas Street, Miraculously Avoids Killing Anyone." But a commenter had a better suggestion.
