(CNN) -- The Washington Post unveiled its much-anticipated "What's in? What's out?" list Wednesday. Carolyn Bessette Kennedy is "in," while hubbie John F. Kennedy Jr. is "out."
According to the paper, radio shrink Dr. Laura is in; radio political pundit Rush Limbaugh is out. Golfer extraordinaire Tiger Woods is in, as are comedian Drew Carey and film director Anthony Minghella.
Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan is out, as if he were a crumpled $2 bill. So, too, are former U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, actor Jim Carrey and CNN White House Correspondent Wolf Blitzer.
Not to fear, however.
The Post says being in is out and being out is in. Go figure. Actress Ellen DeGeneres was honored as the only one to be in and out.
In announcing "The List," the Post wrote the following disclaimer: "Please note that this list makes no mention of British royalty, Madonna, Dennis Rodman or Michael Jackson. When you're that ubiquitous, in or out is beside the point. You will also find no references to O.J. or the macarena. Some things are beneath contempt."
Also topping the "in" list: God, perjury, fixed-rate mortgages, irrational exuberance, Tickle Me Elmo, "Seinfeld," the Arch Deluxe, Cuban cigars and martinis.
On the out: country, equivocating, quotas, goatees, nose jobs, "Friends," PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), Cubans and chardonnay.
