Was he ever serious? How Trump strung the country along, again

Washington (CNN) - After setting tongues wagging over the thought of a run for president, launching eye-popping attacks and accusations against the president and other political enemies, openly cursing at more than one political event and even using an interview to name his best orgasm ever, Donald Trump has done it again, essentially firing himself from seeking the top political job in the nation.

On Monday, the real estate mogul announced that he would not run for president.

As serious as he wants to be: Luke, 90's rapper, wants to be mayor

Washington (CNN) – In his old life, he was known as "Uncle Luke," popularizing sexually-charged songs and videos like "Me So Horny," pushing a porn business, and even seeing one of his albums labeled as so obscene that a lawsuit against it ended up in the Supreme Court.

Now, Luther "Luke" Campbell - of "2 Live Crew" fame - wants to be mayor of the nation's eighth largest county.

'Deathers' take over where 'birthers' left off

Washington (CNN) - With "birthers" mostly silent, "deathers" are now pushing a new conspiracy theory.

The release of President Obama's birth certificate last week apparently tamped down - to a large degree - skeptics who questioned whether he could legally serve as president because they said he wasn't a natural-born citizen. Now, a surprisingly diverse crop of people are questioning whether Osama bin Laden is actually dead.

Some media outlets and bloggers are calling them "deathers."

Bachmann: Obama's certification of live birth 'should settle' birther issue

Washington (CNN) - After recently saying that President Obama should "answer some questions" regarding his birthplace, Rep. Michele Bachmann now appears to be changing her tune.

Appearing on ABC on Wednesday, the Minnesota Republican was pressed about the president's Certification of Live Birth, a legal document that attests to his birth in Hawaii in 1961. Some Americans, dubbed "birthers," insist on seeing the president's actual birth certificate - a document the state of Hawaii does not publicly release.
