Mitt Romney Reaches 1,000,000 Friends While Herman Cain Catches Newt Gingrich

Mitt Romney reached a social networking milestone this weekend, with 1 million people friending him on Facebook. That's just 2.15 million friends behind Sarah Palin and 20.7 million friends behind Barack Obama. The Romney campaign social media director is so lame that nothing has been posted on Romney's wall yet to acknowledge the milestone, even though they are now 5,000 over.

The battle for the second tier is between Ron Paul, the Texas Congressman who virtually invented the Tea Party, and Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota Congress woman who leads the Tea Party caucus in the U.S. House. She may lead in the halls of Congress, but trails by 35,000 on Facebook.

Michele, you may win more friends and influence more people if you kill that annoying annuncement that runs automatically on your Facebook page about how you have "filed the necesary paperwork" to run for President.

Meanwhile, in the third tier, Herman Cain has all but caught up with Newt Gingrich, with each having just over 140,000 friends on Facebook. Neither has crossed the Biden Line of poliical relevancy.

Jon Hunstman, who will announce this week, has yet to clear the Rent-Is-Too-Damn-High line.
