Obama, Jon Hamm and Leo DiCaprio Are GQ Men of the Year

jonhamm.jpgGQ Magazine, always looking to one-up the newsweeklies because it as a rule doesn’t break news, came out with its Man of the Year award. Oh sorry, they’re calling them Men of the Year. Way to waffle, GQ.

Of course, first up was Barack Obama. How could he not be man of the year, decade, century just for being the first black man ever elected to the office of President of the United States?

So who else competed?

This year, in Hollywood, “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm was the belle of the ball for his sleakly cut suits and non-stop smoking, which was sickeningly romantic in its own way.

With that, GQ was able to say seeya to Time and Newsweek.
