Miley Hits Bottom

On their first date, my mother told my father, "I'm here to be entertained." I guess it's genetic, because this is pretty much the way I feel about life in general. So let me say I was grateful to Miley Cyrus for providing me with some big laughs this week. Listen, I didn't even know the girl couldn't sing, so I was very impressed to find out she can't dance either. Always amazing to see a young person so multi-untalented.

And her incredibly bad Video Music Award performance gave us so very much more to enjoy as well.  There was Dennis Miller's wonderfully succinct tweet: "Miley high, inch deep." There was the brilliant remark from Brooke Shields who played the mother of Miley's squeaky clean Disney character Hannah Montana:  "Where did I go wrong?" That's not only hilarious, it actually says something kind of profound about the nature of Miley's reality, if reality is the word I want. And there was The Onion's excellent mock column by the managing editor of CNN.com explaining why she decided to make Miley the website's top story: "It was an attempt to get you to click on CNN.com so that we could drive up our web traffic, which in turn would allow us to increase our advertising revenue."
