America's 50 Most Influential Pundits

The AtlanticWire has now unveiled its list of the opinion-makers it contends are America's 50 most influential columnists, bloggers and talking heads.

Topping the list:
  1. Paul Krugman
  2. Rush Limbaugh
  3. George Will
  4. Thomas Friedman
  5. David Brooks
  6. Charles Krauthammer
  7. Glen Beck
  8. Frank Rich
  9. Andrew Sullivan
  10. Karl Rove
Lawyer and blogger Glenn Greenwald ranked at number 22.

I'm not sure these lists ever mean anything, but this one is as telling in its glaring omissions, love 'em or not - Markos Moulitsas, Michelle Malkin, Chris Matthews, Pat Buchanan and Joe Scarborough jump quickly to mind - as its inclusions.
