This video of Fox News' electronic ticker in NYC's Rockefeller Center being hacked by a left-leaning idealist is fairly impressive in a sense. If only someone saw.

People will, of course, see it now on websites like THG. But for all the effort he or she went through to hack the ticker, it appears there was only one witness.

The woman in the video is, like, so excited to be a part of history. Or about the right wing machine's calculated effort to destroy the middle class. Hard to tell.

Fight the power?

In the greatest meeting of political minds since ... you know what, it's not important. But Donald Trump and Sarah Palin met at a pizza joint in NYC yesterday!

Trump loves the former Alaska Governor, too. Mostly because she loves him so much, or so he claims in gushing about his favorite topic (himself) to Fox.

Palin would "love" for Trump to run for president in the next election cycle, he claimed on Fox & Friends this morning. Here's one of his choice quotes:

Trump met Palin during her stop in New York City. The Thrilla From Wasilla kicked off a tour of the eastern U.S. at the Rolling Thunder rally last weekend.

Both big-name Republicans have been talked about as presidential hopefuls, though Trump recently bowed out and Palin doesn't appear interested.

Like Trump, she basks in the attention, but you can get that merely by acting like you might entertain the idea of running, so why actually bother?

In any case, the admiration is mutual. Trump called Sarah Palin a "terrific woman and a terrific friend" who he hoped would seek the GOP nomination.

Someone start printing the Palin-Trump 2012 t-shirts!!

Wanna ask Anthony Weiner about the allegedly lewd photo he sent to Gennette Cordova? Curious why he's following a 21-year old woman in Seattle?

Go right ahead. But don't expect a straight answer from the New York Congressman, who insists his Twitter account was hacked and who says he's never met Cordova (she concurs).

Surrounded by curious reporters yesterday, Weiner referred to one as a "jackass" and snapped at another: "I'm going to have to ask that we follow some rules here and one of those being you ask the questions and I answer the questions, does that seem reasonable?"

He also made fun of Michelle Bachmann.

Anthony Weiner has deemed a new Twitter-based scandal as nothing but a "prank," but the six-term New York Congressman has still hired a lawyer to defend himself against charges of sending a lewd photo to a 21-year old.

On Friday, the 40,000 people who follow Weiner were exposed to a photo of what appeared to be a man's crotch. (View the picture HERE.) The image was immediately deleted, before Gennette Nicole Cordova of Seattle could even view it.

Weiner says a hacker broke into his account and joked: "Touche Prof Moriarity. More Weiner Jokes for all my guests! #Hacked!"

Cordova has also chimed in on the incident, saying: "There have never been any inappropriate exchanges between Anthony Weiner and myself, including the tweet/picture in question, which had apparently been deleted before it reached me."

And... Sarah Palin is off!

The former Vice Presidential (and future Presidential?) candidate kicked off a tour of the country yesterday by participating in the annual Rolling Thunder ride-along in Washington, D.C. yesterday.

Sarah Palin in Leather

Donning a black jacket - and asking bikers how they stay cool in leather - Palin hopped aboard a motorcycle (she's just so American!) and joined many others in a ride from the Pentagon to the Vietnam Veterans' memorial.

Is the Thrilla From Wasilla about to be the ... something from Scottsdale?

Sarah Palin is reportedly purchasing a home in Arizona, reports say, sparking renewed speculation that she's leaving Alaska for "away," a.k.a. the lower 48.

Two local television stations obtained video of what appear to be Todd and Sarah Palin outside the luxurious new digs. The reason for the alleged move?

Insiders have long acknowledged - and continue to do so in conversations - that Arizona would be a perfect place to base a 2012 presidential campaign.

S 2 the P

Distance and flying time make Alaska an impossible hub for such an effort, but regardless of whether she runs, Scottsdale makes sense for other reasons.

The city offers a good launching pad from which to hit the speaking circuit and, eventually, the trail for whichever candidate she backs in the GOP primary.

Daughter Bristol Palin is also set up in nearby Maricopa, where she'll be going to school and filming her new reality show with Kyle Massey and his brother.

So will Sarah really move to AZ - and will she really get in the race? Even her staff seems unsure which way she's leaning. You tell us: Should Palin run?

The U.S. Department of Justice is gearing up to throw the book at disgraced former presidential candidate John Edwards for alleged violations of campaign laws.

The alleged crimes took place as the former U.S. Senator tried to cover up an extra-marital affair and love child, revealed in '08 by the National Enquirer.

Edwards is aware the government intends to seek an indictment and is considering his (limited) options. He could accept a plea deal of some kind.

The government contend that huge donations made to his presidential campaign were used, illegally, to support and seclude his mistress, Rielle Hunter.

If the case were to proceed to trial, the government would have to prove that the intent of the donations was to cover-up the affair so that Edwards could continue his pursuit of the 2008 Democratic nomination for president.

Not a big stretch, according to his ex-aide Andrew Young.

The former staffer says he was intimately involved with all facets of the coverup - even claiming paternity. He also has a John Edwards sex tape, BTW.

Hunter was a campaign videographer with whom Edwards had a lengthy affair that resulted in a daughter, Frances Quinn Hunter, now three years old.

Is Donald Trump's non-existent presidential bid ready to exist after all?

The billionaire business mogul phoned into Fox News' Fox & Friends (he's not gonna call MSNBC, people) Monday to lament the state of the GOP field.

He took issue with Mike Huckabee exiting the race for the Republican nomination, saying he's sure Huckabee could win - and that Trump could too.

Trump refused to rule out a late entry. "Who knows if I did the right thing," he said of declining to run. "I am not seeing a lot out of the candidates."

"I can't rule out anything ... [It's] vital we choose the right person, and at this moment, I don't see that person ... I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election."

Is anyone out there buying it? Does even Trump buy his own BS?

It's hard to see him mounting a serious run, given the allegations of racism he already faced hammering away at his signature "birther" issue - which is now off the table. But he does have business experience ... relevant or not.

What do you think? Should Trump run for President?

Frank Bailey, a former member of Sarah Palin's inner circle, has written a scathing tell-all book about the former Alaska governor turned professional celebrity.

Among many other things, he says Palin was ready to quit as governor months before she resigned and was eager to leave office for more lucrative options.

"In 2009 I had the sense if she made it to the White House and I had stayed silent, I could never forgive myself," Frank Bailey told The Associated Press.

Blind Allegiance

Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of Our Tumultuous Years, due out Tuesday, is based on thousands of emails Bailey kept during his time with Palin.

It began with working on her 2006 gubernatorial campaign and continued through a failed run for vice president in 2008 and her brief stint as governor.

The Alaska attorney general's office has said it's investigating Bailey's use of emails and whether executive ethics laws bar him from profiting from them.

In any case, Blind Allegiance bolsters the perception of Sarah Palin as self-serving, casting Bailey as her enforcer - doing the dirty work, no questions asked.

In a light-hearted nod to the infamous birther controversy, President Barack Obama and his re-election campaign have released a new line of t-shirts and coffee mugs touting that the Commander-in-Chief was "Made in the USA!"

The "birthers" have long held the belief that Obama is not a natural born citizen of the U.S. of A. and thus ineligible to be president. Obama's birth certificate, released last month to quell the rumor, is featured on the shirts:

Obama said he "can't walk around with his birth certificate plastered on his forehead," so deputy campaign manager Julianna Smoot asked his supporters to wear it for him, according to an email message on Wednesday.

The birther conspiracy theory was given a loud, annoying mouthpiece this year in the form of Donald Trump, who allegedly pondered running against Obama but dropped out of the race for the Republican nomination Tuesday.
