1. Sarah Palin cancels ‘Today’ show interview over Martin Bashir’s inflammatory comments

Sarah Palin cancelled her appearance on “Today” with Matt Lauer in the wake of MSNBC host Martin Bashir inferring that someone should shit in her mouth. When Matt Lauer was informed of this, he responded with a resounding “meh.”

2. Yes, we will have a pot editor….

The Denver Post is hiring an editor to “oversee the development and maintenance of a recreational marijuana website.” Dave was thought to be a shoe-in for the position, but after a thorough investigation, it’s been confirmed that Dave’s not here 

3. Kanye West Said Zappos Sells “Sh*t Product”; This Is Their Awesome Response
