To many Americans, and especially to those behind 30 Rock, Kim Jong-Il was a frightening nut job, a world leader to scoff over and laugh at.

But to thousands of thousands of Pyongyang residents, the man was a national hero, which is why they turned out in droves at Kim's funeral today, crying, screaming and pounding their chests despite frigid weather.

Kim, who died of a heart attack on December 17, lay inside a black hearse during the three-hour ceremony, as the vehicle was followed by dozens of cars and military trucks that drive past major monuments in the capital.

"Even the people, mountains, rivers and the sky are crying for our dear leader," one solider interviewed by North Korean state TV said at the event.

That's probably because the mountains, rivers and skies couldn't actually process that Kim Jong-Il was a manipulative, evil human being.

President Barack Obama blended his roles as dad and commander-in-chief on Christmas, spending time with his family and U.S. service members stationed in Hawaii.

Posing for a picture with the leader of the free world, one young American was far from intimidated. In fact, the youngster proceeded to maul the President's face!

No word on how the Secret Service handles situations like these, or if the little one was interrogated. Watch the amusing video of Obama and a hands-on baby below:

On Christmas, two protesters at an Occupy Nashville encampment proved that while they may decry the way the 1% bludgeons us commoners in a manner of speaking, they still reserve the right to literally pummel one another.

The two women - one of them three months pregnant - exchanged harsh words, which quickly led to hair pulling, punching, and both of them landing on the ground.

Watch the disturbing exchange below:

Traci Nobles REALLY wants a publisher to purchase her proposal for a memoir about her interactions with Anthony Weiner.

Nobles, a woman who met the disgraced politician on the Internet and is doing all she can to profit from that experience, supposedly gave an excerpt to Radar Online of one of the conversations she shared with Weiner via Twitter.

Anthony Weiner at the Mic

Is Anthony Weiner smiling here at the thought of a threesome with another dude? Probably not.

Nobles says Weiner asked her about "3 ways" with him and "another guy" and, when pressed on whether he's turned on by men, responded:

"Well it depends on the guy, but generally yes."

Of course, there's no proof that this exchange actually took place. It's just the word of a woman who carried on a Web-based affair with a married man and is now hoping to write a book about it... versus the word of a popular congressman who ended his career in humiliating fashion because he just had to send photos of his body to random females he had never met.

Good luck choosing sides, readers!

Perhaps taking a cue from Jimmy Kimmel's hilarious Christmas challenge of filming loved opening the worst gift ever, this girl's parents got her ... a Ron Paul book.

Paul, the Texas Congressman and presidential candidate, inspires passion like no other political figure. Unfortunately for his chances, it's not always positive.

Watch her open the magical gift and express her gratitude:

[We're sorry, this video has been removed.]

Safe to say those aren't tears of joy, but rather disgust over Paul's libertarian viewpoints ... particularly as they pertain to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

It's also safe to say she won't be pulling the lever for Dr. Paul in 2012, but plenty of peeps will for the same reasons. Enough to win? Only time will tell.

One thing is for sure: Love him or hate him, Paul gets a reaction!

Rick Perry is not a fan of Congress, or those who serve in it.

It's unclear if this is an issue that strikes a chord with the average voter, but Perry is pushing hard for his part-time Congress idea in his latest Iowa advertisement.

The ad features pics of Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich, all of whom serve or have served in Congress (guess Mitt Romney is exempt from this one) as a narrator asks, "If Washington's the problem, why trust a congressman to fix it?"

Rick feels he's "Strong" enough to do it, that's for sure.

Former SNL cast member Victoria Jackson is never one to hide her staunchly conservative political views. Her latest rant surrounds Muslim infiltration of the U.S.

Jackson, on her web talk show this week, claimed the United States is being overtaken by radical Muslims bent on bringing the nation under Sharia law.

Seriously. Citing insider knowledge, she said the following:

"I just went to a briefing in Washington DC, across the street from the Capitol, at the Longworth building at 8:30 am two days ago and it changed my life."

A new pro-Newt Gingrich ad airing in Iowa warns voters in advance of the Jan. 3 caucuses not to let the "liberal Republican establishment pick" a presidential candidate.

The ad is from pro-Gingrich super PAC Winning Our Future, which can spend unlimited funds as long as it doesn't coordinate with him directly. That's not shady at all.

The 30-second spot touts Newt's conservative credentials, accusing the Republican establishment of "attacking him with falsehoods" and outspending him 20-to-1.

Pretty funny in a way that a PAC that would obviously outspend Mitt Romney 20-to-1 if it could is lamenting its own underfunded status, but that's Newt for you.

On the flip side, he does have a point. The establishment does have some clout, but given the fluidity of this race, the conservative base is much broader.

Obviously the average voter isn't too swayed by what the powers that be tell them to be. But will voters come out to support Newt, or is he fading fast?

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is making a serious TV ad play in the first two primary states, hoping to secure back to back wins and cruise to the nomination.

But can he convince Republican voters he's conservative enough?

He won't fail for lack of trying. The Romney campaign's newest Iowa ad is even called "Conservative Agenda" and vows to make government "simpler, smaller and smarter."

Touting his experience, Romney says he will "get rid of Obamacare" and says that "it is a moral imperative for America to stop spending more money than we take in."

Convinced? Check out the ad below and see:

The January 3 Iowa caucuses are less than a week away. In New Hampshire, which votes January 10, the former Massachusetts Governor enjoys a sizable polling lead.

It shows in his latest TV ad there, which features a more relaxed and uplifting Mitt. "This will be a campaign about the soul of America, about American greatness," he says.

"I'm confident that Americans won't settle. I'm confident that Americans will refuse to be bought off by cheap promises that turn into never-ending debts for our children."

Watch the spot, titled "Earn It" below and see if he can:

Political blog Pardon the Pundit has come up with a hilarious guide to making a campaign ad using Rick Perry's recent "Strong" video as its principal case study.

If you recall, Perry started running this 30 second piece of art to prove that he's the real conservative of the Republican party. And Obama hates Christmas.

It's a pretty great political satire of political commercial. Check out the breakdown and the original ad spot run by the Texas Governor in Iowa below ...
