Arizona Senator and GOP presidential candidate John McCain laughed, then just froze after he was asked about his position on insurance companies that cover Viagra but not birth control pills. To put it mildly, it was extremely awkward.

"I certainly do not want to discuss that issue," McCain told the L.A. Times aboard his campaign bus, nicknamed the Straight Talk Express.

They might want to rename it the Straight Confusion Express if exchanges like this become the norm. Look at his facial expressions! Goodness.

Uhhh... Hello? John? We're still here! Hi!

Rachael Ray isn't getting riled up about Cindy McCain stealing some of her recipes. Then again, we all know Rachael Ray is a shameless media whore and bona fide megalomaniac good sport, so this probably makes her excited!

The wife of Republican presidential candidate John McCain, Cindy McCain cooked up some controversy when an intern shoplifted Rachael Ray's recipe for rosemary chicken, Ahi tuna and several other Food Network recipes.

The Arizona Senator's campaign site pawned them off as "Cindy's Recipes," only to have Recipe-Gate uncovered by a deft Huffington Post reporter (the next thing you know, they're gonna tell us The Hills re-shoots scenes for good angles).

Just the same, the wife of John Cusimano was unfazed, saying:

"All these recipes are supposed to be accessible to everyone. Interns, senators, students and families alike! I am flattered when anyone cooks my food."

Cindy McCain and Rachael Ray: Bonded by Ahi Tuna.

To further show she has no hard feelings, Ray wants to cash in big on this in every possible way John McCain and Cindy McCain to visit her show and "get in the kitchen to share with viewers some of their favorite recipes."

On Monday, after being outed, the campaign swiftly removed the recipes, and said the intern responsible was "dealt with," according to a campaign spokesperson. Joking, the rep told reporters, "We took away his zero pay."

Also exposed as a fraud this week? The McCain Girls! Sad.

We knew it. Who would really make up a YouTube campaign song about John McCain? Turns out the famed McCain Girls are completely manufactured.

They are a hoax, a product of the website 23/6, which wanted to make fun of the campaign-song phenomenon, popularized by Amber Lee Ettinger and others.

So they hired three chicks to sing pro-McCain lyrics to "It's Raining Men," then followed it up with an encore spoof of "Here Comes the Rain Again."

The McCain Girls: As real as they are attractive.

The website's President admitted to the hoax, telling the New York Times:

"We were pretty amazed that after the video came out, people were confused as to whether or not it was real. That's when I think we said ‘Hey, can we actually pull off a hoax here? How long can we keep it going?'"

Is there nothing sacred in this world? We just can't take it anymore. Next thing you know they'll tell us The Hills is fake. The horror.

The McCain Girls are back.

Famous on YouTube for their song, "It's Rainin' McCain" (really), the young ladies have released a new video in support of presidential hopeful John McCain.

The title: "Here Comes McCain Again," a play on the Eurythmics' "Here Comes the Rain Again," an '80s dance classic. Here's the video if you dare ...

Apparently the McCain Girls were undeterred by the fact that the Arizona Senator lies about watching The Hills, or that the GOP nominee-to-be has confused an Al Qaeda presence with separate Sunni extremists in Iran.

Maybe they're saving that for their "Blame it on McCain" rendition.

Either way, come on McCain Girls. Give it up, already. You're no Obama Girl. Few are, and we admire your interest in civics, but please. Step off.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain took a minute on the campaign trail yesterday to comment on his latest celebrity endorser:

Heidi Montag.

Spencer and Heidi Image

"I'm honored to have Heidi's support and I want to assure her that I never miss an episode of The Hills, especially since the new season started," McCain told Time.

John McCain's comment comes just hours after Montag's endorsement of him on the website of Us Weekly. His publicist must really be on top of things.

"I'm voting for John McCain," Heidi Montag, 21, said, acknowledging that no one cares. "I'm a Republican and McCain has a lot of experience."

We know John McCain is a man of honesty and integrity, but does he really watch The Hills? This positively, absolutely cannot be true.

NOTE: We may have to vote for McCain if it is.

Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are running such a competitive race for the Democratic presidential nomination that many voters want them to run in tandem.

Good luck getting one to agree to take the V.P. spot. Still, one artist's rendering of an Obama-Clinton ticket took on a whole new meaning this week. Gross!

Obama Giving a Speech

Opposing Obillary, of course, is John McCain, who (at least regarding the Iraq war) is sounding more like President Bush each day. We'll call it McBush!

Which candidate below would you vote for? There's little doubt that the frightening lagoon creature on the left has the diversity vote locked up ...

Interestingly, the Barack Obama-Hillary Clinton image is actually taken from a real ad for a school in Brussels, Belgium, with the visible tagline "why choose if you can combine?" The gist - it's a college and university in one! Clever!

Meanwhile, our celebrity gossip presidential primary remains a tight race!

With all the attention we give to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, it's easy to forget that there's another guy running - a man who's actually going to win the nomination of his party for sure, unlike one of those two.

It's time for the celebrity gossip world to give the old man his due!

While the celebrities seem to love Obama like none other, Arizona Sen. John McCain, a Republican, has received strong support across the United States of America. Including from this pair of enthusiastic backers...

This is easily one of the best campaign signs of 2008 so far.

While Miley Cyrus has yet to come out in favor of a presidential candidate (she's like 11, and thus not eligible to vote yet), it's good to see that these Hannah Montana enthusiasts aren't afraid to show their McCain support!
