Louis C.K. is far from apologetic about the profane Sarah Palin Tweets that caused major controversy and cost him his White House Correspondents' Dinner gig.

The Louis star was slated to host the annual D.C. event but bowed out amid the uproar sparked by harsh Tweets he wrote about the ex-Alaska Governor.

So, is he sorry? Mmmnot so much.

"It's caused me some problems that I wrote s--t about her," C.K. admitted on the Today show Monday. "But I also... why not, man? I mean, what is she?"

"She's just a person. I don't think she's some sacred person."

"And, to me," he added of his Tweets, which were written drunk on a plane, "I was writing poems. It was like poetry to me, and I enjoyed writing them."

Poetry comprised of C-bombs, F-bombs and Sarah Palin jokes.

Asked if he would write the same things again, C.K. replied:

"Yeah, I probably would, I think so. It still makes me laugh a little bit, the stuff that I wrote, when I think about it ... I actually thought it was well-written."

Hey, might as well own it. The man does not mince words.

Mary Cheney, the openly gay daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, married her longtime partner Heather Poe earlier today.

Cheney spokeswoman Kara Ahern confirmed the nuptials.

Mary (left) and Heather "have been in a committed relationship for many years, and we are all delighted that they were able to take advantage of the opportunity to have that relationship recognized,” Dick and his wife Lynne added.

“Mary and Heather and their children are very important and much loved members of our family and we wish them every happiness.”

As V.P., Dick Cheney regularly broke ranks with the Republican party and president George W. Bush with his support of same-sex marriage.

Poe and Mary Cheney have two children: Cheney gave birth to their son in 2007, and their daughter in 2009. They live together in Virginia.

Congratulations to the whole family!

The UnFair campaign, a new anti-racism effort from the University of Minnesota-Duluth, challenges racial stereotypes by pointing the finger at white privilege.

As such, it has been accused by some critics as being racist itself.

University of Minnesota-Duluth calls the UnFair Campaign "a major anti-racism effort focusing on the role white people can play in addressing racial disparities."

Sounds good, right? See if you think so after watching it:

The 30-second spot shows multiple white men and women, remarks stenciled in black on their faces, explaining what being white provides them inherently.

One white male declares, “society was setup for us, and our silence keeps it in place.” Fairly or not, it looks to associates fair skin and features with guilt.

UMD’s Chancellor Lendley Black, who supports the effort, said he sought to “create an inclusive campus climate for all” with the campaign’s components.

The campaign has elicited some strong reactions from those who criticize it for being anti-white more than anti-racism. Tell us what you think of it below:

All five of presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s adult sons - Tagg, Matt, Josh, Ben and Craig Romney - appeared on TBS' Conan last night for an interview.

Conan O’Brien joked about the sheer number of them right off the bat, passing around nametags and joking that they seem better suited to a boy band.

The five-person Romney crew took the jokes in stride, and came prepared with their own, namely at the Republican White House hopeful's expense.

The best part? They shared a video in which they spliced together sound bites from Arnold Schwarzenegger movies and had him "call" Mitt. Pretty funny:

Later, Conan played a true-false quiz with the boys, grilling them on some common Mitt Romney rumors and whether or not they're legit. Among them:

  • Mitt went to college on a croquet scholarship (false)
  • He's often referred to as the Mittster (partially true)
  • He loves reciting Will Ferrell SNL skits (true)
  • He can do a mean moonwalk (unclear)
  • When he's under the weather, the boys call Dell tech support (no comment)

Rielle Hunter says she's unsure if she and John Edwards will wed one day, but she's forever grateful for him and for their daughter. He's also hot.

After years of secrecy, Rielle - the mistress whose relationship with John ended his bid for the presidency and his marriage - is coming clean now.

"I fell in love with a married man and became something I wasn't in order to be with him," Hunter tells People, while promoting her new book.

A Rielle Hunter Picture

What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter and Me details the couple's past ... and present. "We're still together as a couple," she says.

Rielle, whose book claims John had other affairs and paints his late wife as a bona fide crazy person, won't predict the future, however.

"Marriage? Have no idea," she says. "I'm not a big fan of the institution but never say never." Hunter, 48, sees Edwards, 59, regularly in any case.

"Sometimes five days in a row. Sometimes every two weeks. It varies ... he'll play with [Quinn] for hours. He empties the dishwasher. He cooks."

"Johnny and I have been through so much awfulness with the wrath of America directed at us," she adds. "But I followed my heart and I don't regret it."

The main reason? "It produced the greatest love in my entire life: Frances Quinn," she writes of the couple's love child, now four years old.

Of their sex life, she says, "I don't think that's anyone's business." But, when asked if she thinks the former U.S. Senator is hot, she says "I do!"

Brings a tear to your eye, no?

Yvette Wilson passed away from cancer a few days ago, and while the actress' death has left Nicki Minaj in tears, it's also left her irate. At the American health care system.

In a series of Tweets posted not long after Wilson died, Minaj went off on current policy and even addressed President Barack Obama at one point.

“What’s sad is that when Yvette was bringing home the bacon, the gov’t was probably taking millions.On her deathbed though, #Nowheretobefound," Nicki wrote. "That should be a God given right! Even with Obama Care, too much involved. Just give FREE health care to all. @barackobama What can we do?

"@BarackObama I wouldn’t mind the millions they took if it was going to healthcare. Why should a poor person struggle to pay for MEDS sir?"

The President, of course, is too busy helping Amanda Bynes avoid a DUI charge, but Member Questo of The Roots replied to Minaj's Tweets with one of his own:

“@NICKIMINAJ i personally know that the white house administration would LOVE for you to use ur tweet power to raise health care awareness."

Are you in favor of universal health care, readers?

In the forthcoming Rielle Hunter book, What Really Happened, John Edwards' crazy mistress says that the first time they had sex was pretty darn good.

Okay, we're underselling it. It was the most extraordinary night of her life!

Hunter's bombshell memoir was rejected by all major publishers and is being released on Tuesday, June 26 by a small Dallas-based company, Ben Bella.

That's a week away, but a deluge of excerpts released in advance of the book tell you all you need to know ... and plenty you probably wish you did not.

Edwards, J.

After meeting Edwards at the Regency Hotel in New York City during his run for president, Rielle went to his hotel room strictly for professional reasons.

But NOT FOR LONG!

"The connection I felt when I walked in the door had only grown and the amount of energy between us was huge and unstoppable," Hunter reveals.

"A moment came while we were talking when something clicked and I surrendered. I took off my teacher hat, let go of all my resistance to him and let him lead."

"And lead he did. He led me toward the most extraordinary night of my life. There was a lot of talk, a lot of laughter and zero sleep."

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, a rising Republican political star, is not being vetted by Mitt Romney for the Vice Presidential nomination, according to reports.

It was widely assumed that even if he didn't get the nod, Rubio, 41, would at least be on Romney's short list of possible V.P. picks for obvious reasons.

Young, charismatic and wildly popular with conservatives, he could also help Republicans win a key state (Florida) and make inroads with Hispanics.

Apparently Romney isn't looking at Rubio for the post, however.

Romney and Rubio

The first-term Senator has not been asked to complete any personal questionnaires or been asked to turn over any financial documents, insiders say.

It's been months since Romney named longtime aide Beth Myers to run his V.P. search, so it's unlikely she simply hasn't gotten to vetting Rubio yet.

Officially the Romney campaign has no comment, and Rubio has refused to make any sort of comment when it comes to vice presidential questions.

The news will be disappointing to some prominent conservatives who have been openly encouraging Romney not just consider, but pick Rubio.

Either way, Rubio has stumped for presumptive GOP nominee Romney, who frequently praises his younger counterpart on the campaign trail as well.

The 64-year-old Romney is polling about even with President Obama nationally and in key swing states such as Florida ahead of November's election.

Rielle Hunter was John Edwards' mistress, but not his only one, according to her new book, What Really Happened. Yes, Rielle Hunter has a book out.

In the book, to be released June 26, Hunter reveals that John Edwards, the disgraced former White House hopeful, carried on at least two other affairs.

Rielle Hunter says she wrote it "in an effort to explain her relationship with Edwards to their daughter." We're sure money had nothing to do with it.

Rielle Hunter Book Cover

Ironically, when Edwards first met Hunter in 2006 he lied to her about having more mistresses than he actually had, and only revealed the truth years later.

After he was set to be tried for using donations from wealthy political backers to cover up his illicit affair and the daughter he had with Hunter, he came clean.

Edwards was found not guilty this spring on one count of violating campaign finance rules and a federal judge declared a mistrial on five other criminal counts.

The Justice Department will not retry the case, leaving him in the clear ... legally. His reputation, astonishingly, continues to take on more and more damage.

Hunter is vague about their current relationship status, but suggests that they remain romantically involved and he is involved in daughter Frances Quinn's life.

As President Obama explained a major immigration policy switch Friday in a Rose Garden statement, he got into an unexpected tussle with a reporter.

Obama seemed bewildered, then downright angry, at Neil Munro, a reporter for the conservative website Daily Caller who interrupted him more than once.

The reporter shouted a question President Obama's decision to halt deportations of some illegal immigrants while he was in mid-speech. Check it out:

"Excuse me, sir," Obama told Munro after Munro shouted a question in the middle of his speech on the Dream Act. "It's not time for questions, sir."

"No, you have to take questions," Munro responded, according to an official White House transcript. Obama shot back, "Not while I'm speaking."

Obama went on to complete his speech but not before jousting again with Munro, who he chastised for not letting him finish his statement.

Munro again shouted questions at Obama before he was done. "I didn't ask for an argument," Obama said. "I'm answering your question."

In a statement on the Daily Caller website, Munro defended himself:
