Watts wins LA critics Best Actress prize , beating out favored Charlize Theron. (Note: Watts did a fine job, but there is nothing exceptional or distinguishing about her performance in any way. It was a completely competent but wholly unremarkable performance.)

"The Famous Face on Mars has had a face-lift, a startling new photo taken by a NASA space probe reveals!" That would make it the second-oldest lifted face in the known universe. (Insert Cher joke here).

Ya gotta love Bill (no spin) O'Reilly "We've outsold that guy [Franken] all over the place," O'Reilly claimed Monday on NBC's TODAY show. "We're running against Hillary for most copies of non-fiction books sold this year!" Just a few minor errors in that statement (1) Neither Hillary nor O'Reilly is anywhere near that level. If you add them together and throw in Franken to boot, the combined total would still be less than South Beach Diet. (2) If you are just talking ideological books, not only did O'Reilly trail Hillary by a margin of almost 2-to-1, but he was not even anywhere near Al Franken's lame-o book for the Number 2 spot. (Franken 790,000, O'Reilly 606,000.)

President Bush Starts Out 2004 With 60% Job Approval. He leads Dean by 20 in a head-to-head matchup. Bush's early January job approval rating is the highest for an incumbent seeking re-election since Lyndon Johnson's in 1964. (And Johnson's is misleading, because he had only been president for a month at that time, so he was still on his honeymoon)
