    i wonder if most (american) readers see this and know who general petraeus is/what he looks like. or if they’ll scroll by thinking it’s some dude filming a military movie.

    I also tried giving Sarah Palin a chance, I watched her interview and had an openmind but damn she’s just really unlikable. Yes, she’s just really unlikable. Calling Republicans who don’t like her limp, impotent and some other taunts a 5 year old would use.. sigh…her if-you don’t-agree-with-me-you’re-unAmerican attittude is why i don’t like her is basically what i’m saying, she thinks her **** don’t stink.

    Worst list ever. Jersey Shore scum? Sarah Palin? Lebron James? Jennifer Lopez?… If we(Americans) are truly intrigued by these people then our Society is well on its way to failure.

    to rephrase, i’m saying that americans (as opposed to readers from other countries) should hopefully know who general petraeus is, not that americans aren’t smart enough to know. i don’t know what canadian miltary leaders look like, so i don’t expect them to know what american leaders look like.

    Pailin and the Jersey Shore crowd are invented by the media. They are fake. They haven’t done anything or accomplished anything. To say they are fascinating is a joke. It shows how dumb we are to believe it. At least the other people have a skill or a talent or they have done something.

    I am tired of these people being shoved in my face every minute and people telling me who I should like or be interested in!

    What is truly fascinating is that someone–anyone–finds Justin Bieber and the cast of Jersey fascinating.

    Jennifer Lopez is WASHED UP! She can’t sing or act. All her latest songs and movies have been FLOPS! She’s lucky she got a job at American Idol lol too bad that shows ratings have been in decline the past 2 seasons. She was over exposed and nobody cares for her now

    The fact that most of you wrote in hate of Sarah Palin more than anyone else is proof of her being the right choice.

    People were fascinated with Zuckerberg and the cast of Jersey Shore. Palin is so last year though, and I never really heard anything about J.Lo this year
