Tough call, but she edges out Dick Cheney for that distinction. Barely.

Earlier today, John McCain named Sarah Palin, the little-known Governor of Alaska, as his Vice Presidential running mate in the 2008 election.

Who is Sarah Palin? Few outside Anchorage know. But we uncovered one interesting fact - she came in second in the 1984 Miss Alaska Pageant!

Here's a photo of Palin now and then ...

That's right. The Thrilla from Wasilla (we just coined that) is an inspiration to many. Who knows, in 24 years, Tara Conner may get her chance to run for V.P.

Anyway, here are some more Sarah Palin pictures ...

It's still a week early for the MTV Video Music Awards, but Britney Spears, who is up for three awards, is already garnering support.

Count one hip-hop heavyweight, producer Pharrell Williams, among her fans.

"She's made her mark with her career," Williams said at the Pepsi 500 party in Hollywood, which he hosted. "She's super-talented. She's an entertainer."

Williams previously collaborated with Spears - who some consider to be the worst singer ever - on her hits "I'm a Slave 4 U" and "Boys."

"It was cool, it was fun," said Williams, who is currently working on new music with Common and Fall Out Boy, of working with Britney.

Besides video of the year, Spears' nominations include best pop video and best female video. She has never won a MTV Video Music Award.

"I'm not sure [if she will win]," Williams said, though he added that "I don't even know if it really matters whether she wins or not."

Britney Spears is competing with the Jonas Brothers, Chris Brown, the Pussycat Dolls and the Ting Tings for music video of the year.

Her live MTV VMA performance of "Gimme More" last year was an epic disaster. This year, probably for the best, Spears is not scheduled to perform.

Apparently presidential hopeful John McCain shares a birthday with Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson! What does THAT say about his ability to lead?!

Just kidding. We won't hold sharing August 29 as a of birth with the King of Crazy against John McCain, who turns 102 (give or take 30) today.

As for Michael Jackson, he officially reaches the half-century mark today after decades of pop hits, plastic surgeries and absurd news stories.

We'd recount some of them here, but we just don't have that much server space. So here's a brief photo tribute to the birthday boys instead ...

We learned a lot about various celebrities this week.

Jessica Simpson doesn't often tell people they're the love of her life; Pierce Brosnan's wife, Keely Shaye Smith, is proud of her full figure; and Jason Mesnick is just your basic, normal guy with a rabid reality TV fan base.

Here's a look at who said what over the last few days...

Jessica Simpson [on Tony Romo]: I just told him today, 'You're the love of my life.' I don't really ever say that to anybody.

Jenna Jameson: Yes, I can confirm I'm pregnant. It's still early, so I'm being cautious. I'm resting as much as possible. I'm so happy!

Keely Shaye Smith (pictured): I never shy away from colors or my curves. I never hide in baggy clothing.

Keely Shaye Smith is proud of her body. We admire her self-confidence. Do you?

Jason Mesnick: I am just the most regular guy you could ever come across and for this to be happening to me is unbelievable.

Lindsay Lohan [on Michael Phelps]: Tell him he's f*cking amazing, and I want to meet him.

Spencer Pratt: I'm trying to live a more positive, holy life, but it takes work. It's hard not sinning, you know?

The main American Idol talk this week has centered around Kara DioGuardi as the fourth judge on the show. Look for her in season eight.

But while decisions such as this were being made behind the scenes, the two most popular contestants from season seven were entertaining fans as part of the American Idols Live Tour.

Here's a look at David Archuleta and David Cook from a show in Los Angeles earlier in the week:

Both David Archuleta and David Cook have albums coming out in November.

Kim Kardashian's ass may have its own zip code, but it's also about to have its own national stage: season seven of Dancing with the Stars.

As a result, the reality television and sex tape star says she has goals for her most famous body part (no offense to her giant breasts).

“I’m hoping that it’ll firm it up and shape it up,” she said. “Everyone is asking if I’m worried it’s going to go away. No, it’s going to tone it up. I can use that.”

Like Barack Obama, Kim Kardashian promises changes. She's just referring to her ass, not middle class tax cuts.

Okay then. What sort of fashion can we expect to see this aspiring dancer wear with her new, supposedly taut rear end? Kardashian said she expects to show off more skin as the competition moves forward.

“Today the costume that I tried on wasn’t as crazy, [but] the better shape that I get into they will be a little more sexy and risqué,” she said. “I’m starting off with maybe a ball gown, something a little bit more elegant and a little bit more covered up.”

You gotta hand it to Michael Lohan.

The awful father and terrible human being has managed to use an event such as his father passing away to garner publicity for himself and to bash his ex-wife.

Kate Major, Michael Lohan

Indeed, the grandfather of Lindsay and Ali Lohan died yesterday, and we'd like to express our sympathy to the family. But Michael wouldn't. He'd like to hate on Dina Lohan, as he did in the following statement, released to OK! immediately after the death of his own father:

My father just, literally, died in my arms. I notified all my kids and my lawyer notified Dina's attorney. Let's see if she has the decency and respect to bring my kids to the wake and funeral. THIS will show her true colors! She didn't even send a card or visit when he was sick.

Only Michael Lohan could swing public opinion in the direction of Dina Lohan. We hope he breaks both kneecaps.

Michael Lohan alerted celebrity gossip reporters to his so-called charity efforts.
