Jimmy & Mitt
The self-described "oppo researcher" who helped broker the release of the secret video that rocked Mitt Romney's campaign last week got a congratulatory email from his famous grandfather -- former President Jimmy Carter.
Atlanta-based James Carter IV said that he tracked down the source who took the secret Romney video. After "Little Jimmy" emailed his grandfather about the tape, the former president wrote back: "James: This is extraordinary. Congratulations! Papa."
But Carter IV, 35, also confirmed there is a personal side to the back-story of the campaign video: he was especially motivated, he said, because of Romney's frequent attacks on the presidency of his grandfather.
"I don't like criticism of my family," said Carter IV, who denied being paid for his work by the Obama campaign or any other political organization.
Carter IV is currently unemployed, making him one of the 47 percent.
Bill & Monica
Monica Lewinsky is reportedly writing a tell-all memoir which may contain explicit details about her romantic relationship with former President Bill Clinton.
Lewinsky, now 39, is allegedly shopping the new "top-secret book." She has yet to comment on the planned book deal, but the tabloids have already begun speculating about the money involved (possibly millions) and the details that will be divulged (potentially salacious) by the vilified "other woman."
Readers, however, may be disappointed that the chapter about Clinton will be very short.
Mitt & Snooki
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has retooled his campaign strategy and revealed his stance on "Jersey Shore," including his admiration for Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi.
Sorry Honey Boo Boo.
"I'm kind of a Snooki fan. Look how tiny she's gotten! She's lost weight. She's energetic. Just her spark-plug personality is kind of fun," Romney said.
See, he is just like us. He just chooses to live in a bigger house. With elevators for his cars.
Ann & Jay
Ann Romney stops by "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Tuesday for her first late-night interview to talk about the upcoming election and family life on the campaign trail.
Barack Obama was on Letterman last week, talking about how important it is to always appear presidential.
Wouldn't it be better if we could just skip this whole election thing and let late-night talk show hosts pick the next president?
