Preview of 2012? Obama Beats Palin – on Facebook

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.
* Not that you asked, but Obama's Twitter account has 4,874,016 followers, while Palin (217,466) and Newt (1,308,492) trail there, too. Hey, my mayor, 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.
