Hell, put her in charge, she can't do any worse.

Well, technically speaking, Vin Diesel beat Obama too.

"It's not news, it's FoxNews"

No subby its just about every news outlet (new window) out there.

Now you shouldn't you be off yelling "FOX" at a screen for 2 minutes?
 
2010-07-03 01:23:27 PM  
Yeah. And more Americans know the words to the Brady Bunch theme song than the national anthem. What's the point?
 
2010-07-03 01:55:44 PM  
Vin Diesel? WTF?

This was win-win for our old friends at FOXNews.

If Gaga was more popular, it proves how much everyone hates Obama, if Obama was more popular, it proves that he's more of a rockstar than a president.

Pretty smart of the article producer, actually. Their typical viewers would eat up either explanation, thus adding fuel to the fire they've so carefully stoked.

"The American national anthem I've noticed is a bit hazy in the middle! 'Cause it starts strong and you finish strong, but the middle bit's a bit, 'And fish in the sky, and a big... monkey pie...' I've seen guys up there, halfway through, just losing it.

Suck it, Obama.
 
2010-07-03 02:41:20 PM  
So?

Obama's Facebook fans, according to Fox: 9,557,061
Obama's margin of victory over McCain in 2008: 9,522,083 (teh wiki^)

It's not news, it's Fox News.

//i'd do it myself, but i'm less skilled at photoshop than obama is at bowling
 
2010-07-03 02:49:57 PM  
finally the american people have spoken..I assume this means Lady Gaga is now the President??

Theory: People that are likely to Fan things on Facebook are more likely to like crap like Lady Gaga. People that are more likely to positively view Obama are probably out working or rigging elections.

Chances are that's because the people who watch MTV are too young to remember when MTV didn't suck and are too young to vote.

And if they watch Jersey Shore, chances are their opinions aren't worth listening to anyway.

If you work somewhere where it's inappropriate to view images of an effeminate young boy in very, very tight shorts and a nun outfit, you need to find a new job.

And here I though Final Fantasy had the 'Is that a guy or a girl?' problem the worst.

Then that thing appeared.

Once upon a time, MTV aired music videos and Beavis And Butt-Head.

Fox News currently has 771,504 fans on Facebook. So, there's that.

somehow, i think the music industry has planted lady gaga here as an IRL troll. the signs all point to it. like some of the members of the RIAA are secretly plants from 4chan. its the only thing that makes any sense to me.
 
2010-07-03 04:57:59 PM  
Meh. Same fans. Same intellect. Same causes. It's just a matter of training the monkeys to click twice and getting them to realize they can be fans of more than one person.

Big Al: sad tag more appropriate... priorities of people these days...


Yes, it's so sad that more people around the world connect with the official page of a globally chart topping pop sensation than with some guy's fan page for an American president. If only more people would engage in politics through facebook fandom.
I certainly expected better from the discerning and deeply serious Internet that gave Rick Astley an award for "Best Artist Ever". Oh, Internet, what happened to you? You used to be srs bsns.

A successful international pop star is more popular amongst the international facebook demographic than the leader of a particular country?

How can this be?

these same people have never voted in their lives but don't miss a vote for American Idol. Your priorities are demented. You don't understand what it means to be living in a health Democracy. Keep worshiping a disgusting and drugged up "pop sensation" who writes bland boring and auto-tuned music that appeals to the masses who force themselves to like it merely because it's popular.

Certainly not that. I just think it's ridiculous to be saddened by meaningless comparisons of facebook statistics.
 
2010-07-04 03:01:55 PM  
it's just one more example of the disconnect people have with things that matters and the obsession with entertainment
 
2010-07-04 03:56:24 PM  
Even if some guy's Obama fan page had ten times as many "friends" as Lady GaGa's, it wouldn't mean people were any more or less disconnected. As a measurement of the general population's level of interest in politics and democracy it's useless.
But you think this matters, so good luck with that.
