Does it bother, puzzle, or amaze anyone else that the A.N. Smith thread has over 15k responses?
vanity

Posted on 02/24/2007 5:27:57 AM PST by zook

Is it just me, or do others find it remarkable and maybe just a bit troubling that a thread on Anna Nicol Smith would gather over 15,000 posts?

I just don't "get" it.

That's what I mean. But I'd add that it just seems like another sign that the "world has turned upside down."

It must be in the Smoky Backroom because I don't see it per the way I have my preferences set.

But, no. I am not surprised. We have some of that from timre to time. That gal who disappeared in Aruba held some folks mesmerized for quite a while.

Yes! It's taken the troop surge success off the front page. Hell, even Fox News is running that damn trial all day long and discussing it all night long.

what really gets me is FNC dedicating 24/7 coverage for it

how many chances did they miss selling a Mr & Mrs Happy book by doing that


;-)

am serious about FNC obsession with this type of liberal shiite

I care about as much as I care about any stranger who dies prematurely: I feel for her and her family and more importantly, I am glad it was her and not me. In all series, I am astonished that a person who has done so little to advance or destroy humanity -- that a person whose impact on the world has been so insignificant -- would garner this much attention. I have stopped watching Fox News and I have turned off Hanity, both on FNC and on the radio, because I can't take anyone seriously who would devote this much time to the A. N. Smith circus.

the 24/7 'anne nichole' show is so the sheep won't look up at what is really going on in the world.

if they did they might get nervous after all, and stop watching bill maher on HBO or buying US Today or buying MACs or Microsoft Vista or talking about Jack Bauer.

the whole american economy could collapse! nancy and hillary would not be pleased...

so, bring on more crying judges by all means (but don't look up).

unfortunately, too many at FR live in the same illusion as the clowns at DU. think "crunchy" for the former, "smooth" for the later.

Yea, I thought she died weeks ago, but every day here on FR I see one of the top posts, "Anna Nicole Smith has died".
How many times is she going to die?

I wonder how many of those posts in that thread were made by social conservatives who, after listening to talk-radio cover Anna Smith just about all week, could not help but chime in regarding how detrimental this has all been to the values of our culture. Many probably had Fox News on in the background -- with Smith coverage --while writing their posts. I find it comical when people feign outrage while getting so caught up in all the minutiae of that which they're feeling so-called "outraged" over.

It started out being about Smith but now its about "undead thread" (no pun intended)

At this stage it could be about any subject and it wouldn't matter. The fact that it has so many posts is what's keeping it going.

It reinforces traditional values. One reason why it captures the imagination of so many. The lesson learned is that if you take drugs, live a careless life etc. etc. then you'll come to a bad end.
