We realize there's only so much time one can spend in a day watching new trailers, viral video clips, and shaky cell phone footage of people arguing on live television. This is why every day The Atlantic Wire highlights the videos that truly earn your five minutes (or less) of attention. Today: Mitt Romney kept things in check and even got off a few good lines on the Tonight Show, Alicia Silverstone prechews her child's food, and Eric Clapton spent $4.5 million on a red car.
Mitt Romney was relaxed and sociable on the Tonight Show last night, even using the word "porno" to great comedic effect. Bad Romney did not emerge, and there were no confirmed sightings of his known accomplices, Impatient Romney, Hectoring Romney, and Overly Talkative Romney. But it wasn't all good news: before the start of taping, ABC News producer Emily Friedman, an embed with the Romney campaign, pointed out on Twitter that the candidate provided Leno with a briefing on the current delegate math "moments after taking the couch." Other than that brief cameo from Math Enthusiast Romney, the sailing was smooth. But he's still out there, lurking, waiting to throw data at someone he should be buttering up. Just keep an eye out for him. [Hulu]
