"Journalism is the Ability to Meet the Challenge of Filling Space." (Rebecca West)

 
Sarah Palin was on Jay Leno [clip 1:30] [full interview 9:53] and Mitt Romney was on David Letterman last night. [clip ±2:00] Try and guess who beat who in the ratings. Both Palin and Romney have managed to make a real splash in the media lately.

That said, the real winner yesterday was Funny or Die's Presidential Reunion with Will Ferrell, Chevy Chase, Ron Howard, Jim Carrey, Fred Armisen, Darrell Hammond, Dan Aykroyd, Maya Rudolph and Dana Carvey. (This clip is awesome!)

That's just what Malcolm Muggeridge used to say! He also devised an axiom of journalism called "Muggeridge's Law" which basically means that you can't make it up - the reality will be more absurd than anything you could come up with by trying to be funny.

Orangutan Hacks Snack Machine. No wonder Dr. Z wants to perform brain surgery on humans.

It was Eisenhower who was surprised to learn 50% of the population was below normal intelligence. I'm sure he'd be even more surprised to learn the baseline has dropped.

Jang-chub Ozer: Reality usually is more absurd than anything you can come up. And more annoying, too. :o(

Übermilf: Oh, dear! Not on the rug, please. :o(

Kelly the Little Black Dog: Ha! That's awesome. I like his body language in the second photo. So sad... :o)

MichaelBains: Jeepers! Perhaps you need a tissue? ;o)

Susan: Lowering the bar seems to be the new American pastime! ;o)

Sunshine: Yes, but do they waddle to and fro? ;o)

Dr. Zaius, does that also apply to the gigantic space between Palin's ears?
