The Rage sits and contemplates a quick death by her own hand. Why? The TIME 100 -- Time magazine’s most influential people of the year -- is top-heavy with cultural lightweights like Britney Spears (58,898 votes) and Madonna (15,876 votes). Perez Hilton has 49,836 votes -- maim me now! Korean pop star Rain (148,973) tops the list, while huzzah! for Stephen Colbert who comes in at 22,259.

Sadly, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and the Dalai Lama don’t make the top five. If Britney Spears is truly influencing our world, it’s time for another ice age. Brrr. You can cast your vote here.
