“Data from last week’s sales has just come in and we’re told People’s Obama cover moved just 1.3 million copies on the newsstand, lower than its usual 1.4-1.5 million copies.” [Jossip]

      Obama is overexposed. People just get sick of having the same people shoved down their throats constantly.

      Of course, no one seems to mention that perhaps people aren’t buying the magazine because Bushtard and his flying monkeys have fucked up the economy so much that the average person (you know, the ones that can’t put 500K on their credit cards like Cindy McCain) are saving their money for those unnecessary luxury items like milk, bread, gas, etc.) Oprah’s magazine is down 16.4%; I guess that means she better take a job at the 7/11 because her career is through now. I wonder how many copies People Magazine would sell if McCain and his druggie wife were on the cover? Maybe shoppers would buy it to replace the toilet paper they can’t afford anymore due to the Bush/McCain/Phil Gramm economy. But then, maybe I’m just a “whiner”.

      If that were entirely accurate, The New Yorker wouldn’t have sold record numbers of its own very special Obama cover…

      Or possibly People-buyers prefer Ms Spears or Ms Lohan or a spandex-clad superhero to, well, Reality? If they wanted stories about politicians, they’d buy Newsweek.

      Something tells me “People” readers aren’t exactly Obama’s base…
