While Obama highlighted sound reasons for entering a war with Libya in his speech last night (denying people their freedom, exploiting their wealth, dressing like Arsenio Hall in Coming to America), he still has his critics. Sarah Palin wants to know why the president is wasting millions of dollars a day on the war. The simple answer is he isn't. Palin went on the record as saying the military effort is costing $600 million a day, whereas the closest projected figures say it cost about that much in the first week of the conflict.—-

Although Palin’s popularity is dropping amongst the masses in terms of a presidential bid, she might be able to get some more airtime on Fox News. The radio chain dropped Glenn Beck back in January yesterday explained why:

"He bounces around pretty radically, I think he confuses people, they're not sure where he is coming from," said Rick Buckley, president of Buckley Radio of Greenwich, Conn., who spoke with Media Matters. "It can change day to day, hour to hour. Consistency is, I think, the path to success in broadcasting, in radio for sure, whether it be music or talk. Glenn is sort of all over the park from time to time."

Since Beck was dropped from the radio chain, there has been speculation surrounding his post at Fox News. Do bizarre religious rants hurt ratings?

About 500 people last night turned out for a meeting of the Southwest Local Schools board to discuss the proposed $2.56 million being cut from the $30 million budget. The projected cuts would see 26 teachers lose their jobs and end bus service for high school students. Carpool!

Britney Spears’ concert in San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Sunday apparently went well enough for her to go on tour this summer. Spears plans to tour with Enrique Iglesias starting in June. "I love it. I love music," she said on Good Morning America. "It's my world. It's my everything."
