You just described my sister, who I can't stand, and is so much like Daria. And is definitely NT

Dan Akroyd once said in an NPR interview that he has Asperger syndrome. That has never been confirmed nor denied by him, though. Two that I know are on the spectrum are Daniel Tammet and the person who invented Pokemon.
Here are some that I suspect, both real and fiction:
All of the characters on The Big Bang Theory
*maybe* Steve Jobs, to some extent. Even though he seems a lot more social than Bill Gates, he uses a lot of ready-made phrases in his presentations.
Reclusive authors and actors such as J.D. Salinger (he wrote The Catcher in the Rye)
I always thought Jim Carrey was kind of Asperger-ish, or at least ADD
Ron Paul was spectulated to have AS by some people. I met him twice, though, and nothing really stood out to me.
Hans Asperger himself has been speculated to be on the spectrum. I don't know much about him, so I can't say for sure, but it makes sense. By extention, Leo Kanner could also be on the spectrum, but again, I can't say for sure.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (if he's anything like I've read of him or anything like the actor in Amadeus portrayed, he's definitely on the spectrum)
I agree with everyone on your list... except, I'm wondering why you chose Thomas Jefferson?
Lol, I've wondered about Rachael Ray, as well...it's crossed my mind in Whoopi Goldberg and Jim Carey
theres a guy in one of the sort of current rock bands that wears noise cancelling headphones while drumming, he strikes me as spectrumy
