Levi Johnston is running his mouth again. This time, the occasion is his book tour (yes, we're serious) for Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs.

While there are no bombshells quite up there with a Sarah Palin-Glen Rice tryst, Levi does reveal more than Alaska's most famous family would ever want him to.

Some excerpts from a recent interview he gave about the book:

Levi Johnston Book Cover

On the prospect of a Palin presidency: "'President Palin' is a phrase that scares me. She is apparently only 5 percent behind Obama right now and that's frightening me. I'm figuring I might have to move to Canada if she wins."

On his baby mama's book: "I didn't read Bristol's book (Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far). I heard a lot of things out of it, as far as "I'm a gnat" and how I stole her virginity. Her book is just flat out lying, it's disgusting."

Chalk it up to East Coast bias? Not enough coffee? Sleeping through 9th grade geography?

Whatever the reason, the press corps traveling with President Obama on a campaign swing out west this week were given a map identifying Wyoming as Colorado.

The two rectangular states do look similar, but come on. Colorado is not only crucial to Obama's re-election, it's where he gave his '08 convention speech. Weak!

Colorado vs. Wyoming

Obama's three-day swing took him to Washington, California and Colorado, where he held public events and private fundraisers for his 2012 re-election bid.

Tuesday in Denver, an audience saw a speech on Obama's jobs program.

The larger point of the trip was to help Obama reconnect with voters and gain media coverage in Colorado, which is expected to be a swing state in 2012.

As for Wyoming, Obama lost by 32 PERCENT to John McCain in '08. Maybe subconsciously he blocked that out and forgot the state exists, resulting in this error.

Herman Cain will never occupy the Oval Office, but he's become a popular figure on the campaign trail this fall, and as an African-American, his rebuttal to Morgan Freeman's controversial comments about the Tea Party carries some weight.

If you missed it, Freeman called the Tea Party racist on Piers Morgan Tonight Friday, criticizing the conservative movement's disdain for President Obama.

GOP presidential candidate Cain, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, disagrees.

Appearing on Fox's Your World with Neil Cavuto, the Hermanator said:

"Well, first of all, I doubt if Morgan Freeman, with all due respect, who's a great actor, has ever been to a Tea Party. Most of the people that are criticizing the Tea Parties... about having a racist element, they have never been to a Tea Party."

"I just think that it's sad that they're so short-sighted understanding what the Tea Party citizen movement is all about. I'm not offended by it, because it doesn't slow down my momentum. It doesn't slow down the reaction I get from people."

Cain, whose campaign is riding high after winning the Florida straw poll, added, "Name-calling is something that's going to continue, because they don't know how to stop this movement. And this movement is making a big difference in politics."

"A lot of the traditional Democrats are moving to the center or moving over to vote for conservatives. They're taking another look at a Herman Cain."

What do you think? Is the Tea Party racist?

To say Morgan Freeman is not a fan of the Tea Party movement would be putting it mildly. In an interview on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, Freeman labels Tea Partiers radicals whose sole aim is to oust President Obama from office.

"But it's not a racist thing?" asked Morgan.

"It is a racist thing," replied Freeman.

"Their publicly stated policy is to do whatever it takes to see that Obama serves only one term. What underlies that? Screw the country," Freeman lamented.

"We're going to do whatever we can to get this black man out of here."

"We're supposed to be better than that. It shows the weak, dark underside of America," said the Oscar-winner of those "controlling the Republican Party."

There are plenty of racists out there, but the whole Tea Party? We'd be more concerned that these people think hurricanes result from God judging gays.

What do you think? Is the Tea Party racist?

Pam Olsen, the newly-named co-chair of Rick Perry's presidential campaign in the state of Florida, really doesn't like gay people. Nor does God, she says.

In fact, apparently all the fires, hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes these days are actually God's way of punishing us for being tolerant toward gays.

Who knew, right??! You learn something every day.

You gotta love this stuff ... and really hope Larry Flynt gets his wish and unearths a Rick Perry sex scandal. We'd love to hear Pam Olsen's take on that.

Does she really believe this? Olsen seems to explicitly link natural disasters on God's judgment and gays. This puts the Perry campaign at odds with:

  • GOP rival Michele Bachmann, who believes that Hurricane Irene was God's way of saying that the government needs to rein in spending.
  • Any semblance of sanity or compassion.

Why was former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson even at the Republican presidential debate last night? Will he earn more than one percent of the vote? Unclear.

Did he deliver the best line of the night? Unquestionably!

Zinging President Barack Obama for his economic stimulus efforts, the libertarian quipped that "my next-door neighbor's two dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this current administration." That's pretty good. Watch:

The joke killed with the audience. But did he rip it off?

Earlier this week, none other than Rush Limbaugh delivered a similar joke on air, discussing his new dog: "The new puppy, honest to God ... more shovel-ready work for me this week than Obama has created in two and a half years."

So what does Rush think of the similarity? "I guess I've become show prep for the GOP debates now, too," Limbaugh joked to the Huffington Post.

If you've had a sexual encounter - gay or straight - with Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Larry Flynt wants to hear from you. And will pay BIG BUCKS for proof.

Hustler's publisher is targeting the Republican Presidential candidate, offering $1 million for anyone who can show Perry having an illicit sexual liaison.

The ad, which Flynt will take out in various newspapers, asks bluntly, "Have you had a gay or straight sexual encounter with Governor Rick Perry?"

Hey, you might as well not beat around the bush in this quest.

Rick Perry Picture

Rick Perry wants to be president. Larry Flynt wants to derail him/make money.

A purveyor of all things smut, Flynt is clearly not a fan of Perry, who opposes gay marriage and is regarded as devoutly conservative on social issues.

Then again, he's made similar offers in the past to people coming forward with dirt on Bill Clinton and/or members of Congress in either political party.

No word if there's a similar bounty on Perry's rival Rick Santorum, or whether it would involve a bonus if it involves "santorum" as Google defines it.

Seriously, Google Rick Santorum. Larry Flynt would be proud.

The execution of Troy Davis last night drew widespread criticism, including from 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin, who did not hold back on Twitter today.

Never one to shy away from controversial subjects, Baldwin made sure that his disgust over the Georgia man's death was heard loud and clear.

Of Davis' execution, which occurred at 11.08 p.m. by lethal injection, despite a plea for clemency, "The anti-justice haters won tonight," Baldwin said.

Alec Baldwin Tweet

The 53-year-old actor went on to make a stream of politically passionate comments that attracted both praise and criticism from Twitter followers.

He referred to the family of police officer Mark McPhail, who was gunned down rushing to the aid of a homeless man in a Burger King parking lot in 1989.

"Wonder if the MacPhail family will seek death penalty for US leaders who killed thousands of US soldiers and countless innocent Iraqis," tweeted Alec.

He then went on a Twitter rampage about his disgust in the execution of 42-year-old Davis, which was based on questionable eyewitness evidence.
