Yes, in a bizarre upset that seems to conveniently ignore the fact that Michaëlle Jean only represents Canada's head of state—Queen Elizabeth II—our Governor General has captured the top spot on the extremely scientific Hottest Heads of State blog. Feminists everywhere rejoice!
By comparison, Stephen Harper, who is also not Canada's head of state, but somehow on the list, now ranks 92nd, down thirty-one spots from last year. (He must be spending too much time with his cat, Scratches.)
Unfortunately, Jean won't be able to enjoy this honour long, as she'll be stepping down in October 2010 to be replaced by David Lloyd Johnston, some cranky looking old white guy.
