“HELP ME, I’M DYING!” - John Edwards, according to the National Enquirer

Ever since the aforementioned gossip publication correctly reported the former politician's career-ending affair with Rielle Hunter and subsequent love child scandal, they have continued to pursue its aftermath, with questionable accuracy.

The latest angle: Edwards wants to postpone his upcoming federal trial on corruption charges because he had a heart attack and feels he might die!

“John fell apart in front of a pal after returning from a jog and was afraid he’d die,” says a close source. “His heart began pounding and he was having la­bored breathing."

"He had many symptoms of a major heart attack and fears he will die.”

The former presidential candidate really did file to postpone his January 30 trial because of an “unex­pectedly encountered a medical issue” that will make it “extraordinarily difficult,” allegedly for him to appear in court for his trial.

Michele Bachmann is railing against Ron Paul and Kent Sorenson, who left his post as head of her Iowa campaign effort to go work for her rival instead.

Presidential hopeful Bachmann implied that Paul, who is running much stronger in Iowa, bought off her key staffer a week before the state's caucuses.

"Kent Sorenson personally told me he was offered a large sum of money to go to work for the Paul campaign," Bachmann said in a statement to Fox News.

"Kent campaigned with us earlier this afternoon and went immediately afterward to a Ron Paul event and announced he is changing teams."

"Kent said to me yesterday that 'everyone sells out in Iowa, why shouldn't I?' then he told me he would stay with our campaign," Bachmann added.

"The Ron Paul campaign has to answer for its actions."

In response, Paul's campaign said Bachmann's Iowa political director "unequivocally stated Kent Sorenson's decision was in no way financially motivated."

Sorenson attributed his decision to Paul's higher standing in polls, where he is battling Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum for the top spot.

Jesse Benton, Paul's national campaign chairman, welcomed the endorsement from Sorenson, himself an Iowa State Senator, before the Jan. 3 vote:

"Congressman Paul is delighted to accept the endorsement of Senator Kent Sorenson, whose blessing and assistance carry a great deal [of] weight."

"He doesn't take this decision lightly, which says a lot about the senator and Ron Paul." He also picked up an endorsement from Kelly Clarkson this week.

Can he pull off a masterstroke and upset the field next week? Stay tuned.

Original American Idol Kelly Clarkson made a surprise endorsement in the 2012 Republican presidential race last night, throwing her support behind Ron Paul.

This did not go over well with some fans.

“I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last republican nomination and no one gave him a chance,” she wrote of the candidate. “If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he’s got my vote. Too bad he probably won’t.”

Many of Clarkson’s 925,000 followers took issue with her support for the Texan, citing the alleged racism and homophobia of Paul's old newsletters.

“That’s because you willfully ignoring his voting record, his statements, interviews, newsletters, and policy positions,” one follower Tweeted at her.

“You are obviously living under a rock. I don’t even live in the United States and hear about his stupidity,” Tweeted another fan from abroad.

Clarkson tried to maintain calm, responding:  “I am about progress. Ron Paul is about letting people decide, not the government. I am for this.”

Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum surged into third place in a new Iowa, and the Republican Presidential hopeful took this piece news as an opportunity to slam one of the two people ahead of him: Ron Paul.

A CNN survey showed Santorum with 16 percent support in Iowa, in advance of the January 3 caucuses. Mitt Romney has 25 percent and Paul 22.

Santorum, who struggled to gain traction for an entire year, finally has in part due to Newt Gingrich's collapse. Asked about Paul’s support, he said:

Santorum and Paul

“Ron Paul says he’s going to eliminate five departments. Ron Paul passed one bill in 20 years. What give you the idea that he can eliminate anything?"

"I mean, he has absolutely no track record of building any kind of coalition to get anything done anywhere,” Santorum said. “I understand the appeal that Ron Paul has: it’s simple, it’s short - but there’s no track record there.”

“What people in Iowa like about Ron Paul is all of his economic talk which requires Congress to act of which he has showed no ability to get them to do.”

“What they don’t like about Ron Paul is this craziness about cutting the military in half and getting our troops out of everywhere. He can do that. He can actually order that on day one - all our troops around the world to come home.”

Santorum called Paul's foreign policy “far to the left of President Obama.”

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.
