TIME has released its "100 Most Influential People in the World" list with seven different covers for the magazine's latest issue. One of them features Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) whose entry in the list was written by former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
His brand of libertarian-leaning conservatism attracts young voters, and recently he inspired the nation with his Capraesque filibuster demanding basic answers about our use of drones. I sent him some caribou jerky from Alaska to help keep up his strength on the Senate floor. There’s more where that came from for this bold Senator with 20/20 vision willing to take a stand for liberty.
Rapper Jay-Z is made one of the other six covers. His entry was written by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. "In nearly everything he’s tried, he’s found success. (He even put a ring on Beyoncé)," wrote Bloomberg. "And in doing so, he’s proved that the American Dream is alive and well."
