I wasn't aware Forbes Magazine was lobbying for a financial rescue plan.

The fact that she's been anointed with this utterly pointless, pompously vainglorious appellation as"World's Most Powerful Woman" not for any single act of accomplishment or worthiness but simply due to happenstance not the least of which is that it's all due to the success of her husband really says a lot about putting any stock, purpose into this egregiously overwrought propaganda piece.

The Editors:It all came down to matters of grace,style, elegance, fashion sense but most of all who you were married to.

These rankings are a joke: Why isn't Pelosi at the top of the most powerful?

That witch is a force for evil if ever there was one.

Barry gets the Nobel for doing nothing, Michelle gets Most Powerful Woman for being married to ‘nothing’.

It suddenly hit me...that photo of her in the black dress is surely Airbushed to slim her down a bit.

You would think that with all the feminazis around, that putting someone at the top of the list because of who she sleeps with would be considered not politically correct.

As we head into October, the Pravda Media is back to their old games.

Another MTV townhall for Obama, more free pop music concerts before Obama makes public appearances (he couldn't even draw 300 people to appearances in recent weeks without it), and more media hyperbole about how big f***ing deal awesome the Obamas are.

Anyone who thinks she’s the most powerful in the world is on drugs.

Obviously, the wife of any president has some influence, maybe even lots of influence, but there’s no way that she’s anything but a beneficiary of taxpayer failure to write adequate controls on government funding of executive vacations.

The list is ridiculous. Unless Forbes believes that Hussein is nothing more than a mouthpiece for Michelle, who is really calling the shots, she shouldn’t be in the top 50.

How could they rank her, Lady Gaga and Ellen Degnerate ahead of Pelosi? In a month maybe, but not she still is the Speaker of the House and 2nd in line for the Presidency (or is it 3rd? Joe Biden has me confused).

Also, how could they not give the same or consecutive ranks to the 3 female Supreme Court Justices? Sotomayor is more powerful than Kagan and Kagan is more powerful than Ginsburg? Are they giving her “Wise Latina” points?

And these people (including the dimwits at Forbes) are oblivious to how embarrassing it is.

If MO is the most powerful woman, she shouldn’t have any problem pushing her agenda around the Congress and dems would be begging her to campaign for them from coast to coast.

It's more like gallows humor as the joke is on us. It's payback (Mrs. 0 as first lady) for not providing a single thing to have her feel proud.
