Turns out the ladies on The View can do more than pick catfights with one another.

In an interview with John McCain this morning, the panel grilled the Republican on issues that ranged from abortion to dishonest campaign ads. They were tougher on him than Charles Gibson was on Sarah Palin earlier in the week.

Watch a pair of clips now:

You might think Sarah Palin - the Republican candidate for Vice President of the United States - is having a great week, but three recent developments have popped up:

  1. Political website The Daily Kos says Palin is lying about being the mother of her fifth child. Seriously.
  2. Palin's own mother-in-law in unlikely to vote for her, as Faye Palin told The New York Daily News: "I'm not sure what [Sarah] brings to the ticket other than she's a woman and a conservative."
  3. Diddy is down on her as a selection.

In a hilarious - albeit truthful and insightful - rant, the rapper went off on John McCain for being irresponsible enough to place someone as inexperienced as Mrs. Todd Palin on the ticket.

Apparently presidential hopeful John McCain shares a birthday with Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson! What does THAT say about his ability to lead?!

Just kidding. We won't hold sharing August 29 as a of birth with the King of Crazy against John McCain, who turns 102 (give or take 30) today.

As for Michael Jackson, he officially reaches the half-century mark today after decades of pop hits, plastic surgeries and absurd news stories.

We'd recount some of them here, but we just don't have that much server space. So here's a brief photo tribute to the birthday boys instead ...

On the eve of the Democratic National Convention, Madonna has sparked some controversy by including Republican presidential hopeful John McCain in a video montage on her tour that includes Adolf Hitler and Robert Mugabe.

The montage is shown as Madonna sings "Get Stupid" on her "Sticky & Sweet" tour. Images of John McCain, Hitler and Mugabe appear among a litany of images of destruction and global warming until the song nears its end.

That's when images of John Lennon, Al Gore, Mahatma Gandhi and yes, even Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama, are shown.

John McCain's camp quickly fired back against this lunacy.

"The comparisons are outrageous, unacceptable and crudely divisive all at the same time," McCain campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds said.

"It clearly shows that when it comes to supporting Barack Obama, his fellow celebrities refuse to consider any attack off limits," he added.

Regardless of how you feel about McCain, the Material Girl may have gone a bit overboard in likening him to genocidal maniacs. Just a bit.

MADONNA SHOULD ...

Kathy Hilton already issued a terse response. Now Paris Hilton herself is hitting back against John McCain, who for some reason used a clip of her in a recent campaign ad to ridicule rival Barack Obama's celebrity status.

Below, in a new video for FunnyorDie.com (it's a no-brainer which one we choose), Paris slings some mud of her own at "that white haired dude."

It could be right around the corner, if John McCain has his way.

The Arizona Senator and GOP presidential hopeful volunteered his wife to participate in a beauty pageant ... which make sense, as she is a former beauty queen. Only this one includes topless and occasionally bottomless women.

"I was looking at the schedule, and noticed that you had a beauty pageant, so I encouraged Cindy to compete," McCain said at a rally in Sturgis, S.D.

"I told her [that] with a little luck, she could become the only woman to serve as both the First Lady and Miss Buffalo Chip."

Lame ESPN.com columnist Jim Caple wrote that one scene at the pageant resulted in a woman "dancing naked on a bar top."

It is unclear if John McCain knew the specifics of the town's pageant while making the remark, but that's at least somewhat doubtful, as he doesn't know the specifics of economic or foreign policy either.

Regardless, the audience burst into cheers at the thought of a topless Cindy McCain. That would truly be a watershed moment in political history.

You know you've dropped the political ball when Kathy Hilton of all people is criticizing you - and making a lot of sense in doing so.

Kathy is slamming GOP Presidential candidate John McCain for his recent ad featuring her daughter Paris. Barack Obama was mockingly likened to the younger Hilton and Britney Spears, presumably because he's a big celebrity too.

The Hiltons are especially pissed because they donated $4,600 to the McCain campaign - the maximum allowed, $2,300, per person.

Kathy told the Huffington Post:

"I've been asked again and again for my response to the now infamous John McCain celebrity ad. I actually have three responses. It is a complete waste of the money John McCain's contributors have donated to his campaign. It is a complete waste of the country's time and attention at the very moment when million of people are losing their homes and their jobs. And it is a completely frivolous way to choose the next President of the United States."

Wow. We can't believe we're actually saying this about the woman to gave birth to Paris Hilton, but agreed, agreed and agreed.

Presidential candidate John McCain has released a new ad comparing rival Barack Obama to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton and questioning his readiness to lead.

Yes, we're serious.

Yeesh

The aforementioned gossip mainstays appear in a brief montage as a narrator describes Barack Obama as "the biggest celebrity in the world."

The narrator then asks "Is he ready to lead?" and proceeds to list off a series of vague positions supposedly held by the Democratic Illinois Senator.

To us, it seems like your boilerplate Republican ad, criticizing the Democrats over taxes, foreign policy, etc. ... with random pics of Britney Spears for good measure.

In short, a vote for Obama is a vote for a girl who shaved her head, was hospitalized for after a psychotic episode, and who eschews pants at nightclubs. Nice!

What are your thoughts on this John McCain ad? We'd love to hear them. And for more from the colliding worlds of celebrity gossip and political news, check out the latest on John Edwards and Rielle Hunter!
