This week there was a lot of news, and there were a lot of funny tweets. Using our top secret browsing/perusing algorithm, we discovered the rare moments where those two things crossed paths. Your week, tweetified:
It's about time someone made a documentary about Sarah Palin; when is this woman gonna get the media attention she deserves?
The only real mistake Barack Obama made in the presence of the Queen was the 'diplomatic' choice not to use his secretly famous cockney accent when asking for seconds.

The fact that the natural born President released a second legal version of his birth certificate proving again that he's a natural born citizen: clearly the biggest media bombshell since Sarah Palin said that thing about those bulldogs who wear lipstick.
Coverage continues after the jump.

Glenn Beck seems poised to become the Oprah Winfrey of messianic cult-of-personality leaders of people who happily and thoughtlessly follow the every whim of their chosen shepherd.
Or, I should say, Glenn Beck seems poised to become the male Oprah Winfrey of messianic cult-of-personality leaders of people who happily and thoughtlessly follow the every whim of their chosen shepherd…
The possibility that Glenn Beck will exit the Fox News Channel at the end of the year has prompted a big question in media circles: if he leaves, how will he bring his considerable audience with him?
Two of the options Mr. Beck has contemplated, according to people who have spoken about it with him, are a partial or wholesale takeover of a cable channel, or an expansion of his subscription video service on the Web…
Mr. Beck has been contemplating a cable channel of his own for more than a year, according to the people who have spoken with him about it, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Mr. Beck may not be able to actively pursue such an arrangement until his Fox contract is up.
You might be wondering how Beck will ever find enough borderline-schizophrenics with terrible ideas about the world to fill up a whole channel's programming schedule.
Better question: How will he ever choose?

Have you ever been attacked by a pack of rabid skunks? It sucks right? But remember how when you were in the hospital and the skunks were still managing to find you and feast upon your flesh when the nurses weren't looking, you got some nice flowers and you didn't have to do your own laundry for a few weeks? Well, if the skunks are the Bush presidency, then the flowers and laundry thing were The Daily Show's comfortingly hilarious coverage, and last night we got to enjoy some flowers and no-laundry again without having to relive the agony of that whole skunk debacle.

From The CC Insider…
In case you missed it, last night's Daily Show got pretty bananas. It was like it was directed by M. Night Shyamalan. And by that, I don't mean it had a discomforting water nymph and plants that make you kill yourself (sounds like my honeymoon!), but rather it was packed with unexpected twists. First Stephen Colbert came on, then he and Jon merged the March and Rally into a single Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear. And then, just when you thought things couldn't get anymore nuts, Oprah showed up. And they were all dead the whole time!
