In case you haven't noticed, life can be kind of weird sometimes.
Like, for example, one day, you might go to the store to buy green salsa for the enchiladas you're planning to make for dinner, and then when you get to the register it turns out you have the exact amount of money that the salsa costs (with tax) in your pockets.
And, on another day, you wind up as a guest on BlogWorld & New Media Expo 2011's live talk show alongside Andrew Breitbart.
Such is the life of our own Sara Benincasa.
Witness it for yourself live after the jump…The live stream is over. If I find video of the show, I'll stick it up here.

Rebel Pundit directs our attention to an "unhinged lunatic" protester at Saturday's Tea Party rally in Madison, Wisconsin. But did they ever think that maybe, just maybe, he was trying to speak her language?
It sounds like he's says something like "Make your choice now, Sarah." We're not sure. But, judging from Palin’s speech that day — and, well, from the pretzelly logic with which she says most things — maybe his was an attempt to get to her level. And that's a reach across the aisle that should be commended.
After all, barking like a madman is the watermark of our more conservative voices. In fact, that very same day, at the very same rally, following that very same Palin speech, Andrew Breitbart delivered an eloquent directive for protesters to "Go to hell. No serious. Go to hell. Go to hell."
Now that’s some powerful speech-making from a man who makes sense.

No sooner does he leave us all gape-mouthed by doing a thing like this…
Beck said he had been cautious about airing video from O'Keefe’s biggest previous sting, which targeted the liberal community organizing group ACORN, explaining "we wanted the raw video because we wanted to make sure that nothing has been taken out of context. I'm not going to Shirley Sherrod someone" — a reference to Breitbart’s posting of video excerpts that seemed to show an African American Department of Agriculture official in a speech expressing racist sentiments that – more complete video footage showed – she was actually renouncing.
"And not that I question James or anything else, I just want to make sure that it's right and that's what we did with The Blaze — just make sure that it’s right," Beck said on the radio Monday.
Then he follows it up by doing a thing like this…
Speaking [of the earthquake in Japan] on his radio show Monday, Beck said, "I'm not saying God is, you know, causing earthquakes," before quickly adding, "I'm not not saying that either."
He then said that whatever one called God, "there's a message being sent. And that is, 'Hey, you know that stuff we're doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it.' I'm just saying."
If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say that he's getting the impression that we're desensitized to nonsensical things he says, so he has to throw in a few sensical things just to keep us on our toes.
