From The CC Insider…
Oh, Twitter, fill thine horn with Sarah Palin, and let me suckle at your tweets!
Forgive me for waxing poetic but I'm suddenly filled with… with… with… RAINBOWS and… and… and…TROUT… after listening, nay, experiencing Bill Shatner's reading of Sarah Palin's recent twitterings.
If you haven't heard, the now former governor of Alaska has promised to keep in touch with America through her often misunderstood ramblings, which Conan O'Brien has thankfully deciphered as pure poetry–pure, because we didn't get it at first. So watch, listen, and feel alive, because Twitter finally makes sense to us, and Sarah Palin made it so.

Yesterday, Eric revealed that Republican Sen. Tom Coburn would be serenading Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida with Elton John's 1972 classic "Rocket Man."
Well, now that there's video…
…it's clear to the sharp-eared among us that Coburn wasn't singing Elton John's 1972 classic "Rocket Man."
He was singing William Shatner's 1978 classic "Rocket Man" (and he's not the first to be inspired by it):
Man, it's a good thing I'm high as a kite right now…
