It surpassed the previous record holder, my job is not to worry about those people, about a leaked video from a private fundraiser for Presidential nominee Mitt Romney, posted on September 17, 2012 with 5817 comments. Prior to the Romney leaked video thread, the previous record holder was the 5555 comment Sarah Palin thread about the Vice Presidential nominee pick of Republican Presidential candidate John McCain, created on August 29th, 2008. While the Sarah Palin thread is no longer the longest thread, it held the record for more than four years, a period greater than any record holder prior or since.
Congratulations to everyone who participated, and welcome to the 2016 US election cycle. ;)
