What list could possibly include Mitt Romney, Amanda Bynes, Ryan Lochte and Adam Sandler?

It’s the GQ “Least Influential People of 2012” countdown, which gathers a number of notables whom the magazine believes had less-than-stellar years.

It’s an eclectic group, considering that Romney (#1) was nearly President of the United States while Bynes (#2) was in the news mostly for posing a threat to other California drivers.

Other celebs receive the dubious honor include #3 Madonna (“That cheerleading outfit isn’t making you look any younger, Madge,” writes GQ) and #13 Lance Armstrong (labeled “the polar opposite of the inspiring legend he was once made out to be”).

Meanwhile, Lochte (#8) is said to have shattered the “individual medley-of-douchiness world record,” while Sandler (#19) is taken to task for his panned movie That’s My Boy.
