Cheney doesn't hold a candle to Dearth Vader. At this point in his career, Vader had already blown up a planet, where Cheney is still struggling to form a super alliance to do the same. Vader could perform direct "dark side Jedi mind tricks" where Cheney still needs subterfuge and his media pals. Vader was redeemed in the end because he was born a decent person and descended into darkness. Cheney was hatched from Satan and therefore will be tossed into the Lake of Fire when his pacemaker battery dies. 

No comparison.

Actually it appears I had it backwards. He was born in Canada to a Canadian and an American, granting him citizenship in both countries.

Her book Hard Choice's has bombed on actual sales, but that means nothing when it comes to the bestseller lists. Sort of like the Nobel Peace Prize these days.

"Simon & Schuster will not sell enough books to make up for Mrs. Clinton’s advance, said a publishing executive who did not want to speak on the record about a competitor’s book."

Her advance was nothing more than a campaign donation. If the book had gotten out of the red it would have been nice but it was never meant to do that.

If Simon and Schuster had wanted a real profit they would have researched the real maket place and the advance would have been much smaller. A true reflection of the current book retail space would have shown that her 12 million was outrageous.

Simon and Schuster, et all , got around the campaign finance limits with the advance.

Right there in that graph is the slimest I've ever seen Chris Christie. 

And, since when is Nancy Pelosi "Real People"?

This whole comparison is absurd.  Why put fictional characters on the list of comparables?  Why were Superman, Batman, Spiderman and other similar movie heroes excluded if the poll sponsors were being whimsical?  Why not put the latest and greatest real life sports heroes on the list like LeBron and Tim Howard?  (although neither is of age to run for President)

Jar Jar Binks is more popular than Boehner/Pelosi. Beautiful.
