    Meghan McCain, MSNBC contributor and political pundit, gave a relatively revealing interview to Playboy this month.

    "I'm not private about anything," the daughter of Arizona Sen. John McCain told the magazine. "I love sex and I love men."

    McCain said that had her father won the 2008 election, the White House would certainly be a different place with her in it.

    "You would have the craziest first daughter ever, who'd be making ridiculous headlines and hurting the administration every step of the way," she said. "That aside, I think Dad would have made an incredible president. The recession wouldn't have been as bad as it is now. We wouldn't be pulling troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq. I think morale in the military and in the country at large would be higher, and we'd be much further on the road to recovery."

    The day before the 2008 election, McCain said, she "almost overdosed on Xanax."

    Rush Limbaugh has joined Twitter. The outspoken conservative talker announced on his radio show Thursday that he now has an account on the social messaging service in an effort to combat his critics and mobilize his "army" of supporters.

    "Everybody has been asking me what they can do to help in all of this, and I've been saying, 'Nah, just do what you've been doing just, if you listen, keep listening, that's fine," Limbaugh said, according to Politico. "But there's an army out there that wants to be mobilized, and so, I figured, use Twitter for it. I'm just going to put some things on Twitter that you can help us circulate. It's that simple you just retweet them."

    His first tweet, from the yet-to-be verified @Limbaugh handle, linked to a story claiming there has been a "secondary boycott" of advertisers on his radio show orchestrated by the liberal organization Media Matters:

    Here's how the opposition astroturfs advertisers. Smart piece from @LegInsurrection Pls. Retweet @mmfa

    It did not appear at the time of this publication that anyone has retweeted him, but three Twitter userstwo supporters, one not-so-supportivereplied. Limbaugh's account already has more than 102,700 followers.

  • James Murdoch arrives at News International headquarters in London, July 19, 2011. (AP/Sang Tan)

    James Murdoch has written a letter to the British government panel investigating U.K. phone hacking, expressing "deep regret" over activities that occurred at News International under his watch.

    "It has been suggested that my decision to resign my role at News International reflected knowledge of voicemail interception or other alleged criminal wrongdoing," Murdoch wrote in the unsolicited, seven-page letter addressed to John Whittingdale, chairman of the Parliamentary select committee and posted on its website. "This is untrue."

    Murdoch, who testified in front of the committee twice last year, reiterated his claim that he did not know how widespread phone hacking at News International was.

    "In my evidence submitted to the committee, I expressed my shock and anger at the widespread wrongdoing that has emerged and my frustration that I was not made aware of it sooner, all of which is a matter of great and real regret to me," James Murdoch, son of News Corp. chief Rupert Murdoch, continued. "It would have been better if I had asked more questions, requested more documents and scrutinised them carefully. If would have been better if I had not relied on the people who had assured me that thorough investigations had been carried out and that further investigations were unnecessary."

    It's the second letter Murdoch has written to the committee this year.

    He added: "It is important to note that I did not turn a blind eye: I was given very strong assurances about investigations recently done, and the assurances were echoed by the Metropolitan Police."
