The Cricket's Daily 3: Obama's pop culture moment

Here's what's happening today in pop culture:

• President Barack Obama appears on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" and the right-wing noise machine (d/b/a Fox News) has a collective (and suspiciously rehearsed) snit about it. This causes the great Charlie Pierce to issue a much-needed reality check, complete with Richard Nixon's "Laugh-In" appearance. (I swear, if Obama walked on water, Gretchen Carlson would whine that he can't swim.) [Esquire]
