People are losing their damn minds protesting the facebook joke/prayer/whichever about losing their favorite actress Farrah Fawcett, their favorite singer, MJ, etc.
Why are these same people not upset about the identical facebook joke/prayer/whichever calling for the death of the republican NJ governor? If it's so horrible and serious when it's about Obama, why is it suddenly just a joke when it's about someone they didn't vote for? (there's also one about Ahmadinejad, apparently wishing for his death is perfectly ok, too, because he doesn't have family that would be upset like Obama's family would).

Probably because more people know about MJ and FF than the Gov of NJ. I couldn't identify all 50 Govs in a line up. I know absolutely nothing about this person or the pranks/jokes/issue that you are addressing in this ? Guess I'm an under-informed American on this issue.

Thanks NP- I still think it's about name recognition (or lack there-of).

They are equally deplorable. I would assume the one about the NJ governor isn't getting as much attention because he's a state level official, not the president.
