Alaska Gal Wins "Miss V.P. 2008" Contest
Beating out a field of competitors who were "all really beautiful in their own right," Sarah Palin of Wasilla was picked "Miss V.P. 2008" in the contest finals on Friday. Palin, runner up in the Miss Wasilla Beauty Contest in 1984, was considered to be lagging behind her competitors heading into Friday's swimsuit competition held at the RNC headquarters. She had given, by her own admission, a "disappointing" performance in Wednesday's talent competition; an hour long one-woman interpretive dance performance in which Miss Palin represented the characters of Hillary Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro. She also did not fare particularly well in the question and answer session when she was asked what she would do to feed the starving children of the world. Palin answered that that was really best left to market forces. Ms. Palin turned things around when she wore a stunning black Tropical Deco Floral two piece suit by Liz Claiborne, handily winning the swimsuit competition over the three other finalists, Conneticut Senator Joe Lieberman, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty. Contest judge and presumptive Republican Presidential nominee John McCain remarked that he hadn't really considered Palin a viable competetor for Miss V.P. until, "I got a good look at her gams." Palin was given her crown, a beautiful rhinestone and pearl tierra by the outgoing Miss V.P. , Dick Cheney.

Lost Beatle Found in Liverpool Basement
Pete Best, drummer for the Beatles from 1960 until 1962, was discovered in the basement of a Liverpool woman on Sunday. Deloris Wainscoting of suburban Liverpool found the musician when she was "rummaging around looking for jars for strawberry preserves." Best, who is most well known for having been cut loose from the greatest rock band of all time one month before it's first number one hit was released, appeared slightly worn and was covered with dust, but seemed otherwise to be in fairly good condition. "This is really quite an interesting find," said Jamie Bowman of the Beatles Story Museum in Liverpool. "Of course, it's not in the same category as the recent find of the lost Beatles interview at the Theatrer Royal Studios of Scottish Television in Glasgow from 1964. I mean, that's a real treasure. But finding Pete Best after all of these years , especially since no one was really looking for him, that's certainly nice. It is unclear at this time who owns the rights to the nearly anonymous drummer. Wainscoting said, "It would be nice if I could get a few quid for him, you know, on ebay, or the Antiques Road Show, or something."
