Sarah Palin is really unintelligent for a major political figure.

We're not saying that because she's female, conservative, outspoken, etc. It's just true, as her grasp of the U.S. Constitution, or lack thereof, proves in spades.

The former Alaska Governor and current professional celebrity went on Twitter yesterday to give embattled radio host Dr. Laura Schlessinger some support.

Palin's first Tweet: "Dr.Laura:don't retreat...reload! (Steps aside bc her 1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist thx 2activists trying 2silence"isn't American,not fair")"

Her second: "Dr.Laura=even more powerful & effective w/out the shackles, so watch out Constitutional obstructionists. And b thankful 4 her voice,America!"

Putting aside the fact that a person who wrote "2silence"isn't American,not fair" was nominated for Vice President of the United States, this is still nonsense.


To recap, Schlessinger repeatedly used the n-word in speaking with a caller that asked for advice on her marriage. This woman then complained about the epithet.

Dr. Laura naturally replied, on air, that "If you're that hypersensitive about color and don't have a sense of humor, don't marry out of your race." Crickets.

Her contract is set to expire at the end of this year, and with the backdrop of this controversy, Schlessinger decided not to continue her show when it does.

She wasn't actually fired, though it would have been justified.

You see, Schlessinger's First Amendment rights did not "cease 2exist" because she was criticized for berating an African-American or using the n-word 11 times.

The First Amendment, Sarah Palin, protects people from government infringing on our speech rights; it doesn't take away other Americans' right to criticize.

Nor does it stop a private business from terminating an employee or pulling ads as it so chooses. That's capitalism and freedom at work, baby! U-S-A! U-S-A!

That Homer, Alaska resident said it best: Worst. Governor. Ever.

An unscheduled court hearing was held yesterday regarding Lindsay Lohan, and her attorney, says nothing has been decided in terms of her release from rehab. Yet.

Lawyers went to court to hear the recommendations of UCLA doctors, who say Linds' condition is far less serious than first thought and want to let her go early.

According to TMZ, sources say it's almost certain Lindsay will not stay at UCLA Medical Center for the 90 days she was given by the now-recused Judge Marsha Revel.

Lawyers met with new Judge Elden Fox in chambers and two letters, dated Aug. 12 and Aug. 16, were placed in the case file. The next court date is set for Aug. 25.

Cracked

Lindsay Lohan may get sprung fairly soon.

It's Judge Fox's call, although going against doctors' recommendations would be a bit of a surprise. According to Radar Online, they're saying 30 days is sufficient.

Lindsay is currently on Day 17, which could put her back on the West Hollywood club scene by the first week of September if everything goes according to plan.

Attorney Shawn Chapman Holley has worked her magic again. Truly an inspirational figure, Lindsay is well on her way to being a free woman in under 45 days.

When she was sentenced to jail July 20, she was looking at 90 days there and 90 more in detox. Talk about working the penal system over like a cheap hooker.

More details are not available at this time, because the proceedings were closed to the media (medical issues are confidential), but we'll pass along what we hear.

What do you think? Should she be let out early?

The MTV Video Music Awards just got a lot funnier... and racier.

Comedian Chelsea Handler - who has never met a sex tape joke she didn't embrace - will host the live ceremony on September 12. She takes over for Russell Brand, who handled the festivities each of the last two years.

Handle This

"Everyone knows that when you think of rap music and hip-hop you think of Chelsea Lately," the host joked on her talk show last night. "And that's why I will be hosting them."

The VMAs are always a popular special, but will likely draw higher ratings than ever this year: Kanye West is scheduled to perform, a year after infamously interrupting Taylor Swift's speech on stage at the same event.

Other artists set to take the stage include Justin Bieber, Ne-Yo, Trey Songz, Nicki Minaj and Selena Gomez; while Lady Gaga leads the pack with a record 13 nominations.

You won't believe this, but Kim Kardashian has chosen not to ignore a rumor about her and her family.

In a rare instance of milking an opportunity for publicity, the professional celebrity has taken to her blog to refute a tabloid report that claims she and sister Kourtney are at war over who is hottest.

Torn Apart, Again

"It’s so funny how ridiculous this is," Kim writes on her site. "I am so proud of Kourtney!! She had Mason less than a year ago and is at her skinniest. She looks amazing and is an inspiration to new moms everywhere!!!"

Of course, Kim also posted the cover of the magazine in question, calling attention to it and causing us to wonder: No way her publicist leaked this story, right? That would simply give Kim and Kourtney a chance to respond, garner sympathy and make headlines... and that's nothing the Kardashians would ever do, is it?!?

Kim says she and Kourtney simply have "different bodies."

"I embrace my body the way it is, as every woman should," she added. "There is no such thing as a 'weight war,' dolls!"

Maybe there isn't yet - but there might be by the time THG is finished! Sound off below, readers: Which of these sisters would you rather see naked?

Fox hasn't said anything and Steven Tyler himself remains mum.

But Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton has confirmed to The Newark Star-Ledger that his band's frontman has officially signed on as an American Idol judge.

"Steven is doing American Idol. The ink is dry on that," said Hamilton. "We'll have to work around his schedule for a new record. I hope it doesn't hurt the new momentum we've built up on this tour, because that's been so important for us as a band. But I wouldn't want to be the one standing in the way of this for him."

Hamilton added that millions of people will "see another side" to the iconic singer, describing Tyler as "witty and entertaining."

With the Aerosmith legend on board, producers must now decide the fate of Kara DioGuardi. Sources say Jennifer Lopez might still be a candidate, despite reports that she demanded too high of a salary for the job.

We're still pushing for Jessica Simpson because, let's face it, who would not tune in each week to watch her at the judging table? She'd made Paula Abdul look intelligent and insightful!

We realize the headline above sounds obvious, but it's not just an opinion this time!

New Jersey prosecutors have hit Jersey Shore's most recognizable guidette with the hilariously real and appropriate charge of being a criminal annoyance.

Snooki, a.k.a. Nicole Polizzi, was also charged with disorderly conduct and creating a public nuisance as a result of her drunken, daytime arrest in July.

An attorney for the reality diva today entered a not guilty plea on Snooki's behalf for all three charges, stemming from a rowdy day of filming in N.J.

Snooki Mug Shot

A mug shot fitting of our girl Snooks.

After doing a face plant in the sand, causing a ruckus and being generally plastered in broad daylight, she was hauled off to the drunk tank to sober up.

She's due back in a Seaside Heights court for trial on September 8.

Snooks, who is now dating Jeff Miranda, has said the experience has taught her a valuable lesson and she will cut down on drinking ... during the day.

Phew. She had us scared for a minute there. After last week's Jersey Shore, we definitely need her hitting the town at night still. It's just too funny.

Britney Spears' manager's wish for her to appear on Glee is finally coming true, and she's got the Twitpic to prove it. The pop star Tweeted yesterday:

“What’s up GLEEKS? Having so much fun on set!! Can’t wait for you guys to see the episode!” Earlier in the day, before she wet on set, she Tweeted:

“About to do my first shot of the day for Glee tweeties! Here we gooooo!”

Apparently, the shoot was a success. Britney posted the following photo:

Glee will pay homage to the greatness of Britney this season.

The show’s co-creator, Ryan Murphy, recently explained why he decided to dedicate an entire episode to the iconic star. He spoke reverentially of Britney's influence:

“She is the most important female, other than Lady Gaga, of the last 10 years. We’re sort of doing an episode about not only her music, but about her public image.”

It wasn’t just Murphy who was all for the idea, either.

“All the kids on this show, many of them went into singing and dancing because of Britney Spears,” he said. “Also, at the heart of it, it’s a show designed to show off the skills of Heather Morris who plays Brittany.”

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag's divorce is so freaking on, there's even a date set at this point - and what a memorable, romantic date it will be.

Getting a divorce on Valentine's Day? Poignant.

Heidi's lawyer, Jodeane Farrell, said yesterday she just received Spencer Pratt's signed acknowledgment that he got served with divorce papers.

Under California law, Heidi Montag has to wait six months after that time before the divorce is final, and Spencer Pratt was served on August 14.

Fun fact #1: Heidi says she formally separated from Spencer on their first wedding anniversary. Fun fact #2: August 14 was Spencer's birthday!

Spencer and Heidi Smile Sort of

Speidi's split appears legitimate and near-final.

While Spencer and Heidi’s friend Cougar Zank recently said the couple’s split was “a show,” Heidi's BFF Jen Bunney says she's moving forward with the divorce.

“I talked to Heidi and she wants people to know that Cougar doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” Bunney said, noting that she and Spencer remain “amicable.”

“The only thing they have to work out is the custody of their dogs since they have four dogs together. But the house’s lease is over and Heidi is moving out.”

As for the men in Heidi’s life, Bunney says that for now, she knows where to find them both: “Spencer and Cougar are living together in a separate house.”

There you go. Straight from Jen Bunney. Credible, late-breaking intel.

After pretty much owning the entertainment world in 2009, Taylor Swift has remained relatively quiet throughout 2010.

We've heard more about her dating life - Taylor Lautner? Cory Monteith? Toby Hemingway? - than her professional life, but there's a reason for that: Swift has been in the recording studio making a new album.

It will be released on October 25 and is titled "Speak Now." Of the 14 tracks on the CD, Taylor has said:

"These songs are made up of words I didn’t say when the moment was right in front of me. These songs are open letters. Each is written with a specific person in mind, telling them what I meant to tell them in person."

Check out the cover art for the album below and sound off:

Vienna Girardi's new John has been identified. He's John Sala, and he's apparently happy to be dating the former Bachelor winner. Better him than us!

The short-lived fiancee of Jake Pavelka was back on the L.A. scene Tuesday night with a new boyfriend in tow, one whose surname eluded us until now.

Vienna Girardi, Beaver

"Yes I'm dating and he is an amazing guy. I'm so happy!" she posted yesterday on Twitter. Here's a photo of the pair are at Soho House last night ...

John Sala is Vienna Girardi's new arm candy. Pity him.

According to sources who saw them at the French Connection Fall fashion party, Vienna Girardi and her new fella couldn't keep their hands off one another.

Who could resist her? Well, besides Jake Pavelka.

For the record, Vienna's rep confirms to E! that she "is dating someone and is very happy." As if she didn't make that clear, and yes, Vienna has a rep!

What do you think? Upgrade over Jake? Just using Vienna for 15 minutes of E-list fame? Will her dad approve? Any chance they're still dating by October 1?
