Couldn't they just pop out of cake and sing in a breathy Marilyn Monroe voice like everyone else? (the Washington Post)

>> Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was targeted by a "homemade explosive device" on his way to give a speech in Hamadan, but was unharmed. Unfortunately. (Reuters)

>> More presidential news: Haitian-American rapper Wyclef Jean is expected to announce tomorrow that he will run for president of Haiti. Shakira to be named official global ambassador. (CNN)

>> The UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon is backing Israel's account of the deadly fighting that broke out yesterday after Israel cut down their own trees. Neighbors and their yards, sheesh. (the New York Times)

>> And finally: Regarding the controversial potential mosque at ground zero, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg gave a beautiful speech defending the religious building, saying, "There is no neighborhood in this city that is off-limits to God’s love and mercy." Except Wall St. The Financial District is definitely off-limits to God's love. (NY Daily News)
