Evolutionary Milestone

Friday's New York Times is reporting that the audience for Obama's 30-minute infomercial "far exceeded" the expectations of television executives. It "was a smashing ratings success on Wednesday night, proving to be more popular than even the final game of the World Series — and last season’s finale of 'American Idol.'"

It appears that, at last, we have arrived at that point in the long evolutionary struggle of humankind when it makes news that a presidential candidate can capture the imagination of more onlookers than a handful of amateur nobody's hoping for a record contract.
