Obama Spoof Getting More Hits Than Real Obama

I want to thank the Dividest over at Divided We Stand United We Fall for sharing the observation by Ben Smith at Politico that the GOP parody of President Obama’s first reelection ad is generating far more hits than the President’s real ad.

When I last checked, the original ad had 310,707 hits, while the GOP’s parody has 1,025,249. It turns out that the GOP may be learning a thing or two about creating a successful viral social media campaign.
