This guy's problem is pretty simple. P.W. is saying that the most popular is
always best, though "we" can disagree on that. Thus he's saying that if
Johnny Lang is hugely popular, that automatically means he's better than
anyone else 'cause it's quantifiable as far as sales go, though "we" can
disagree on it.
