The "Hottest Heads of State"

Here's a well-done list of the world's heads of state, in order of hotness.

It's interesting to look at some of the lower-ranked heads of state and try to detect the hallmarks of unattractiveness. Many of them look like the photos were taken with a fisheye lens or distorted with a Photoshop tool.

Not surprisingly, the photos of some of the higher-ranked heads of state seem chosen to be flattering. But I've always found that photo of President Obama strangely unflattering.

Putin isn't a head of state, so he shouldn't even be on this list. Medvedev is the head of state of Russia and clearly the hottest. Total rip-off.

And Obama needs to be further down on the list. He's like an anti-aphrodisiac.
