It's no Tina Fey making us laugh/cry as Sarah Palin - in fact, you'd be hard pressed to find a Barack Obama impression that's less funny than Saturday Night Live's.

But if the point of the sketch below was to highlight the absurd format and utter worthlessness of this week's presidential debate, then well done, SNL!

This faux debate aired during the show's special, condensed Thursday prime-time edition last night. It's pretty good, and even includes a Bill Murray cameo.

Lehman Brothers, Sheman Brothers.

The John McCain campaign has found an issue on which it can release a definitive, meaningful statement: Lindsay Lohan!

Looking For Indrina?

It all started when The Chicago Sun-Times quoted an unnamed high-level Barack Obama insider this morning,  who said that camp turned down Lohan's offer to host an event because she "is not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us."

In response, McCain blowhard spokesman Tucker Bounds told TMZ: "So let me get this straight -- they turned away Lindsay Lohan, but Barack Obama has friends like unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and convicted felon Tony Rezko? Maybe LiLo is just too upstanding for Barack Obama."

Yes, it really does appear that Bounds referred to Lohan as "LiLo."

We can imagine the eyes rolling on Tommy Vietor, an Obama spokesperson, when he replied: "Glad to see they're focused on the important issues over in McCain HQ."

Lohan, it should be noted, is on record as having serious issues with Sarah Palin. See how intelligent one can be when one isn't on drugs all the time?

Their political ideologies may be poles apart, but Barack Obama and Sarah Palin have at least one thing in common: super-cute seven-year-olds!

The Democratic Senator and Republican Governor have both made political history with their respective parties' nominations in this year's election.

With the relative youth each brings to his or her presidential ticket, it's not shocking that both have young kids - including daughters born in 2001!

Tell us, who do you think is cuter, Sasha Obama or Piper Palin?

... on alternate covers of the same celebrity news magazine, that is! OK! is offering an exclusive look into two of the nation's rising political stars, and doing so with dueling magazine covers for the first time ever.

One cover story focuses on the everyday life of Democratic Party nominee Sen. Barack Obama, wife Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha.

The other cover is dedicated to Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, the 44-year-old Alaska governor who shocked the world Friday when she was announced as Senator John McCain's running mate in the 2008 election.

Palin has since revealed a few more surprises, such as the pregnancy and impending marriage of her 17-year-old daughter, Bristol Palin.

  • Sarah Palin and Trig Palin
  • Barack Obama and Michelle Obama

Political views aside, both groundbreaking candidates are amazing stories and have already made history while providing great entertainment. We thank them!

BUT WHOSE COVER DO YOU LIKE BETTER?

Barack Obama is a uniter.

Forget Reublicans, Democrats and Independents. Obama has brought together a pair of celebrity gossip rivals.

The feud between The Hollywood Gossip staff and fellow blogger Perez Hilton is well-documented - but we can look past Hilton's immature, uncreative postings in order to unite behind the common cause of electing Barack Obama as the next President of the United States.

Perez's shirt says it all.

Can The Hollywood Gossip look past our disagreements with Perez Hilton in order to encourage young voters to elect Barack Obama? YES WE CAN!

Details are emerging from Denver on a suspected plot to assassinate U.S. Sen. and Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama with a high-powered rifle on national TV during his acceptance speech Thursday night.

Authorities have reported a fourth arrest in the unfolding plot after the authorities in suburban Aurora, Colo., stopped a pickup truck for swerving between lanes Sunday morning in what they thought was a routine DUI.

But in the rented vehicle of Tharin Gartrell (below), a 28-year-old felon, they found two high-powered scoped rifles, ammunition, sighting scopes, radios, a cellphone, a bulletproof vest, wigs, drugs and fake IDs.

Tharin Gartrell implicated two other men - Nathan Johnson, 32, and Shawn Adolph, 33, and Johnson's girlfriend, Natasha Gromack. Nathan Johnson also reportedly confirmed the plot to FBI and Secret Service interrogators.

Shawn Adolph reportedly wore a ring with the Nazi swastika. He was injured when he jumped out of a hotel window fleeing Secret Service agents. All are now in federal custody and being detained on drug and weapons charges.

The Obama-Biden ticket will formally be nominated by the Democrats this week. U.S. Attorney Troy Eid insisted there is no credible threat to the party'snational convention or to the Illinois senator and presidential hopeful.

But a Denver television station reports that under questioning, the four men admitted there was indeed a plot to kill Barack Obama during his speech before some 70,000 supporters and a national television audience.

With the Democratic National Convention in full swing this week, People has a cool interview with Sens. Barack Obama and Joe Biden, along with their lovely spouses, Michelle Obama and Jill Biden. Here's the beginning ...

Q: This is the first mate you've chosen since Michelle.

Barack Obama: That's a good point.

Michelle Obama: Barack is looking for people who will challenge him, who will tell him no.

Barack Obama: That's exactly what you need [in a vice-president].

Michelle Obama: That's why he married me. (Laughs.) So I'd tell Sen. Biden, don't pull any punches.

Q: Now, if Sen. Biden starts yelling at you about picking up your socks ...

Barack Obama: Then we're in trouble. Don't do that, Joe.

Joe Biden: Don't worry.

Q: How did you pop the question?

Barack Obama: I called his office and they had to hunt him down. When I finally got him, he said he was at the dentist's. I realized later that he was being a doting husband, looking after [Jill Biden] during a root canal.

Q: How did Sen. Biden tell the family?

Jill Biden: My granddaughter, Maisy, turned 8 and we were having a little birthday party for her. We had just finished blowing out the candles and were cutting the cake. Joe said to everybody, 'Hey, I have something that I'd like to announce.' And he said, 'Barack called me and asked me to be vice-president.' Everybody – I get so emotional when I think about it – everybody clapped and started hugging.

The presidential race may be tighter than many expected so far, but Barack Obama has two things going for him:

  1. John McCain is senile;
  2. He has the support of half-nude soap opera stars.

In the following photos, actors/actresses from The Bold and the Beautiful, The Young and the Restless and Days or Our Lives pose for a photo shoot set up by underwear designer Andrew Christian.

The fashion expert recently unveiled his collection of “Obama 08” briefs. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the underwear will be contributed to Obama’s presidential campaign.

It's a worthwhile, sexy cause.
