The President's New Speechwriters

Bushreads With this week's big staff shake-up at the White House, President Bush might be on the look-out for  some new speechwriters.  Judging by the work of these elementary students, whose presidential speeches are read (hilariously) by a professional Bush impersonator, Bush might actually benefit from getting some...younger blood into the Oval Office.

MAZEL TOV! Top 5 Best Bar/Bat Mitzvahs Ever


Yesterday, Will Smith visited Jerusalem's Western Wall and crashed Atir Cohen's passage from boy to man. While to 13 year old Cohen who got to take a picture with Smith after he rolled up his Torah, it was the best bar mitzvah ever. Which got us thinking what are some of the best bar mitzvah's ever? Here's a list of our top five:

5. Sasha Dominguez, rented a Ferrari Spider, a hummer and a jet ski and filmed 27 hours of a Mission Impossible-inspired movie about her Bat Mitzvah. 

4. Sarah Gold, Ari Gold's daughter in the HBO show Entourage, had a lavish Beverly Hills style event with hot superstar guests like Vincent Chase (who Sarah even got to dance with!) But the best part was garnering nominal affection from her dad.

3. David Rubin, a scholar of ancient Minoan civilizations, just had his Bar Mitzvah at 89 years old. He's now a man.

2. Elizabeth Brooks, The Rainbow Room, in New York. Forget Aaron Reid's super sweet sixteen, Elizabeth is the queen of the 8th grade. Daddy, Multimillionaire David Brooks, reportedly spent over $10 million to corral superstars like Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, Tom Petty, Don Henley, Stevie Nicks, Ciara and DJ AM . For less than a million bucks, 50 cent sang "go shorty, it's your Bat Mitzvah." The party, with it's concert theme, featured jumbotrons and gift bags stuffed with video i-Pods. While the aformentioned musicians jammed all night on the main stage specially built to impress Brooks' 13 year old friends, poor Kenny G was only hired to play during cocktail hour.

CAPTION THIS: Tom's Blackberry

Tom_phone_1_2 Tom_phone_2_with_message_4

If you caught Tom Cruise's interview with Diane Sawyer on Primetime Live Friday night, you probably thought the text message he received from Katie via Blackberry said "No baby action yet". But that's just what Tom saw. We think when Diane looked at the Blackberry, Katie made a last ditch cry for help. Unfortunately, it was too late.

What do you think Diane saw on Tom's Blackberry? Write your captions in the comments section.
