Mitt Romney assigned his Massachusetts governor's aide to head up the search team for his vice presidential running mate for the fall campaign. She must come up with dozens and dozens of names. Mormon men are allowed to have up to three vice presidents.

Kim Kardashian told viewers of her reality show that she plans to run for mayor of Glendale in five years. Her internet sex tape made her famous. The only reason she's running for mayor of Glendale is because Secret Service agent is not an elected office.

Colorado Rockies pitcher Jamie Moyer beat San Diego Tuesday, becoming the oldest pitcher ever to win a game.

Moyer holds the honor of being the only player drafted by both Major League Baseball and the Confederate Army.

The Secret Service dismissed three agents involved in the hotel party in Colombia; however, a supervisor was allowed to retire. After all, the government had already paid for a going-away party.
