    I just did a search over the last 2 weeks.

    13 threads contain "Palin" in the title.

    40 threads contain "Obama" in the title.

    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    She's still hotter, though. Also, she has that one thing that Obama doesn't:

    Boobs.

    I would like to say in the OP's defense that 'Obama' is a very common name.

    People by nature like to dwell on trainwrecks and soap operas. Therefore Palin with her recent soap opera antics will be more focused on than the rather successful President Obama.

    By the way..nice addition to the recent Palin thread tally.

    Obama doesn't have boobs? he must be superhuman.

    That sounds like a possible future thread.

    Re: More threads are started on Palin, or Obama?

    Context must be considered. I we look at pure numbers, Obama wins, easily. However, he is President. Palin is an ex-governor. So, proportionally, she should be getting far fewer threads than she is, at least in my opinion.

    If those were that basic generic facts reguarding the realities of the situation then yes the president should be more news worthy than a ex-governor quitter, but there are certain aspects of the situation that changes the dynamics of the story. Don't you agree?

    For instance. Mavrick turns quitter.

    Give it as couple of weeks she be a nothing. As she should be.

    There are more Obama threads, but the Palin threads get more attention and live longer than Obama threads.

    Palin supporters are fierce and relentless. I would say maybe even more loyal than Obama supporters.
