I just noticed that Sarah Palin's Facebook page has 2,096,096 people who like it, and my heart sank. But then I checked President Barack Obama's Facebook page, and he has 12,337,794 who like it, so my fog lifted.*
Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich, Palin's competitor in the American Crazy Idol contest, is liked by a mere 76,614 people on Facebook.
Things continue to look up for Obama.
Gavin Newsom, has 1,337,034 Twitter followers, so what does that say about Palin and Newt?
UPDATE: Know who else has more Twitter followers than Palin? Hugh Hefner (323,293), Stephen Colbert (1,662,757), William Shatner (314,353), Paul Krugman (419,988), Lady Gaga (5,455,146), and CNN (1,213,488), just to name a handful.
