Madonna? Really?

Yeah.  That one.

About.com posted a list today (in honor of March being Women’s History month) ranking the Top 100 Women of history.   Madonna Ciccone is listed as #1, outranking her style icon Marilyn Monroe, and um, CLEOPATRA.  You can find the author Jone Johnson Lewis‘s ranking methodology here and she makes it clear through her clever italics that it’s based on internet searches.  Well. Alrighty then.  The Interwebs are never wrong, and this post is brought to you by the letters S, E and O.

So let’s think about this — modern poptart turned major business entertainment megastar outranks the sole leader of Egyptian Empire.  (ps – where’s Queen Elizabeth? #22.)  Where’s my gal Hillary Clinton? #15 which isn’t too bad.

I prefer Jill’s list to the About.com one, but hey, everyone’s a critic.

And more importantly – guess who didn’t make the list?
