56. I defy most people who aren't political junkies to name the 44(actually only 43 different presidents

 

But people all over can name all the members of the Beatles and the Simpsons (except maybe for Maggie)

If you ask 1000 people who Frank Rich is, I bet 900plus have no clue.

If you ask a million people who ARTHUR Hailey is, how many would know(I said ARTHUR not ALEX).

If you ask 1000 people who Stephen King is, I am sure all would know.

I still think in 2000, 25% of his voters thought W was 41.

(and I bet tomorrow, the world will instantly know the name Kanye's new baby.(it really isn't North West is it?)

In the movie 42 about Jackie Robinson, I bet everyone knew who Jackie was, but bet almost no one knew the names of the other players portrayed, and the manager of the Dodgers after the other was banned.

It is not personal, it is an observation.

Quick, who was Millard Fillmore's VP?(without looking. I can't say I could tell you myself).
I could tell you the names of the 4 VPS for FDR without looking, but I bet most couldn't remember 2 of them.
