Wire taps revealed that Eliot Spitzer likes expensive prostitutes.

Famous Republican Kid Rock announced his plans to cook at a local Waffle House for charity (and as a mea culpa for a brawl).

Barack Obama did a spit take when he heard about Bill Clinton’s suggestion that he serve as Hillary’s vice president.

President Clinton Saturday suggested a Clinton-Obama ticket would be “unstoppable.” […]

If anyone should be suggesting vice presidential candidates, it should be him, Obama said.

“With all due respect. I won twice as many states as Sen. Clinton. I’ve won more of the popular vote than Sen. Clinton. I have more delegates than Sen. Clinton. So, I don’t know how somebody who’s in second place is offering vice presidency to the person who’s in first place,” he said.

Obama also said the Clinton campaign was “hoodwinking” voters when it suggested he was not ready to be president while also floating the possibility of a joint Clinton-Obama ticket.

“I don’t understand,” he said. “If I’m not ready, how is it that you think I should be such a great vice president?”

Chuck Norris turned 68, Cowboys and Aliens actress Olivia Wilde turned 24, and Black Mirror star Jon Hamm turned 37.
