A new tell-all book about former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin claims she had a one-night stand with former NBA star Glen Rice way back in 1987.

Is that true? Does it matter? The answer to both is highly debatable. Is this the greatest rumor of all time? To that, we might have to answer yes.

At the time, she was single and working at a TV station as a sports reporter; Rice was a college basketball star visiting Alaska for a tournament.

Sarah Palin and Glen Rice

Glen Rice scored 18,336 career points and won a title with the '00 Lakers. If he scored with Sarah Palin, he wins the title of Most Randomly Hysterical One-Night Stand.

Factual or not, Palin's alleged romantic encounter with Rice - some three years younger and then a junior in college - is causing serious, hilarious buzz.

Neither could not be reached for comment about the sexy fling, although Rice is said to have confirmed it to author Joe McGinniss. So ... yeah.

The hookup is said to have occurred after the '87 Great Alaska Shootout.

Glen was playing for the University of Michigan then. Palin apparently covered the event, only to be covered by Rice's naked body shortly thereafter.

Like other famous Democrats, Jon Stewart is not pleased with Barack Obama.

In the wake of Matt Damon expressing disappointment with the Commander-in-Chief, the Daily Show host has come out in the latest issue of Rolling Stone and said, above all else, he's simply confused by the President.

"I'm not sure what he truly thinks is the right path," Stewart tells the magazine. "Other than that he believes the wealthy should pay a little bit more of their fair share."

Adds the comedian:

"He ran on this idea that the system and the methodology are corrupt," he says. "It felt like the country was upset enough that he had the momentum needed to re-evaluate how business is done. Instead, when he got elected, he acted as though the system is so entrenched that it has to be managed... I'm surprised at how much he deferred to the legislative process."

You have to give President Obama credit for delivering his “American Jobs Act” speech at 7 p.m. EST, getting it over with early enough so that he wouldn't interfere with the Saints vs. Packers game and/or a crucial episode of Big Brother.

On the flip side, 8 p.m. on is called prime time for a reason.

If you missed it (purposely or not) The Prez blended his trademark oration with economic proposals that essentially boiled down to him telling the Republican-led Congress, “You should pass this jobs plan right away.”

Obama tried to position himself with the public and as a voice of reason, stating:

“The question is whether, in the face of an ongoing national crisis, we can all stop the political circus and actually do something to help the economy.”

He insisted this was “not class warfare,” while saying that “we need a tax code where everyone gets a fair shake” and “everyone pays their fair share.”

The immediate reaction to the President’s speech was mixed.

Wednesday night's Republican presidential debate was the first of the election cycle to feature Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who quickly made up for lost time.

Using what he himself called “provocative language,” he called Social Security a “Ponzi scheme” and “a monstrous lie,” and Barack Obama an “abject liar.”

Perhaps most notably, though, Perry scored enthusiastic applause when it was noted that the state he governs has executed over 200 people under his watch - and more applause when he said he has no regrets. Watch:

Was that really worthy of applause? Even if you support the idea of capital punishment, it's still the worst-case scenario in which the government kills a human being. Justifiable? Perhaps. But something to stand up and cheer for?

That's the kind of night it was, though.

Perry also defended his denial of climate change, saying “The science is not settled about this ... Galileo got out-voted for a spell.” Well, there you have it.

Who would you vote for in a GOP primary?

Not unlike when she ran for V.P., Sarah Palin finished second this weekend in an Iowa half-marathon. Unlike the '08 election, though, second place is impressive!

Conveniently vague on whether she's running for president, basking in attention without having to do any real campaigning, she was fully committed to this run.

She finished second among women 40-49 with a respectable time of 1:46.10 in the Storm Lake, Iowa, event. That's just over eight minutes a mile for 13 miles!

Palin Runs

Sarah Palin actually did some legwork!

A tweet from Palin mentioned the run: “Thank you, Storm Lake, Iowa. You put on a great event & we loved meeting some great folks in your beautiful town today!”

She did not announce her intention to run prior to the event, though, and competed under her maiden name, Sarah Heath, listing her residence as Des Moines.

As for whether she'll run for the White House: Should she?

Minnesota Congresswoman and GOP Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann was apparently quoted as saying that essentially, last week's earthquake and this past weekend's Hurricane Irene were messages from God.

God's point: Federal deficits are totally out of control!

Bachmann told Floridians Sunday that Irene and the quake felt along much of the East Coast last week were messages from God to warn "politicians" to start heeding divine guidance ... via small government conservatives, obvi.

"I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?'" Bachmann told a crowd in Sarasota, Fla.

"Listen to the American people, because the American people are roaring. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in spending."

The 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York City is just two weeks from Sunday. How the world has changed in the decade since.

In the video below, CBS takes us inside the memorial site at ground zero, where a a test on one of the reflecting pools was recently run. It's very cool.

Two pools, each in the footprint of a tower, are an acre in size and 50 feet deep, and will become the largest human-made waterfalls in the nation.

The memorial officially opens on September 11, 2011. Check it out:

Levi Johnston has ended his campaign for Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

At least he learned something from Bristol Palin. As much as pulling out sucks at the time, if you don't think ahead, you risk life-altering consequences.

Such is the case with the mayoral bid. Johnston didn't want to demean himself or the office running for a job he lacked the interest (and skills) to do.

The Levi Johnston

"He isn't running," his manager Tank Jones told Radar Online. "Levi doesn't want the office of the Mayor to be a joke so he's not going to do it now."

"He's not going to run right now because there are a lot of issues he would need to study up on, and he thinks that this isn't the right time for him."

The 21-year-old former boyfriend of Bristol Palin and father of their son Tripp is "focusing on his book that is coming out September 20," Jones said.

Sad, but sometimes you have to look at the big picture. Besides, for your up-to-date Palin-mocking needs, you still have Mercede Johnston in Playboy.

Sorry, Michael Moore. You tried your best.

The filmmaker recently praised actor Matt Damon for standing up for his political beliefs and called upon the star to launch a presidential campaign.

It's not gonna happen, unfortunately.

Matt Damon on Piers Morgan

A photographer recently questioned Damon on whether he has any plans to enter the political world, prompting the actor to reply: "No sir!"

Damon said: "I think there are probably better choices out there."

The Oscar winner supported President Barack Obama in the 2008 elections, but recently admitted he has been disappointed by Obama.

Damon also attended a teachers' rally last month to support changes to standarized testing and tore into a critic of teacher tenure.

Political opinions aside, he will next star with Gwyneth Paltrow and Marion Cotillard in Contagion, which opens on September 9.

Sarah Palin has not said if she will enter the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, but a growing number of GOP insiders feel she will.

Former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove and tea party organizer Peter Singleton are both among the list of people who think she'll be in, and soon.

Rove said on "Fox News Sunday" that he would bet on it.

Oh, You Betcha

"Well, I'm not much of a gambler but the schedule she's got next week in Iowa looks like that of candidate, not celebrity," Rove told host Bret Baier.

Rove noted the video her PAC released Friday, which reaches out to Iowa voters. That video "strikes me as pre-presidential campaign," Rove said.

Palin is planning to speak at the Tea Party of America's "Restoring America" rally in Iowa September 3, which Singleton says could signal her entry.
