Sorry Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, you have been bested by an Atlanta-based 6-year-old pageant queen. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Honey Boo-Boo – the pint-sized beauty queen – had higher ratings for the fourth episode of her show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo on TLC than the Republican National Convention.
Apparently 3 million viewers were more interested in seeing Honey Boo Boo get all dolled up and pull out her precociousness than watch Mitt Romney ramble on about the economy, budget cuts and unemployment rates.
So what does this mean? Are Americans already burnt out on politics, months before the big election? Do people not care as much about political conventions as they once did? Or are people just more interested in watching a redneck Toddlers and Tiaras spin-off than Mitt and Paul? One thing for sure, the Romney camp should be worried, if not just for their campaign but for the country as a whole.
