As every pedant knows, today is Presidents' Day, not President's Day. In other words, we have mattress sales in honor of all our chief executives, not just the good or famous ones.
Today, we even honor the presidents too obscure to be Googled by schoolchildren forced to learn American history:

As my colleague Lisa Beth Johnson reported yesterday, Mitt Romney won 2012's Twitter battle, easily besting Barack Obama as the year's highest trending political figure. If only RTs really were endorsements, President Romney and Vice President #tcot would be leading their transition teams right now.
Not to be outdone by the top of the GOP ticket, Paul Ryan was declared by Google to be the highest trending politician of 2012, besting Ron Paul, Obama, Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Gary Johnson, Todd Akin, Joe Biden and Rick Perry, respectively.
The Romney-Ryan presidential campaign/world's greatest SEO team also took the top four spots in the category of most searched for political gaffes with Big bird, 47 percent, binders full of women and airplane windows all beating out Akin's musing about legitimate rape.
As expected, all these new media conquests have left conservatives positively giddy.
Now, if only there was some process for determining which side's political ideas were really more popular with the American public.
