Mitt Romney is featured in the following video, doing a little hoedown alongside performer Alex Boyé at a conference for young Mormons last weekend.

No, really!

We're talking about the same Mitt Romney who some might say came across as a bit wooden during the 2012 Presidential election; as a bit robotic and inhuman, other might argue.

Would he have gained more than 47 percent of the vote if he had done a little jig in public back then? We doubt it could have hurt...

Yesterday, during an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Dennis Rodman flipped out over questions regarding his latest trip to North Korea.

The ex-basketball star came across like he was cutting a promo for the WWE in defending his visit to Pyongyang for Kim Jong Un's 31st birthday today.

Now, however, Rodman is the one on the receiving end of someone else's venom. And rightfully so, many would argue.

The question that set Rodman off was about Kenneth Bae, an American sentenced to 15 years in a labor camp by the North Korean government because he allegedly committed "hostile acts" while running a tour operation in that country.

Those acts have never been explained and Bae's imprisonment is considered a prime example of the human rights violations enacted on a constant basis by Kim Jong Un and company.

Dennis Rodman went positively ballistic today during an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo.

While surrounded with several former NBA players, Rodman defended his trips to North Korea as a "great idea for the world."

But should the group, who is due to play in a basketball game tomorrow in honor of Kim Jong Un's 31st birthday, really be in Pyongyang? Is this a good idea, considering North Korea's human rights record?

Cuomo also asked Rodman a serious question about Kenneth Bae, an American citizen who was arrested in November 2012, convicted last spring by North Korea of unexplained "hostile acts" and sentenced to 15 years in a labor camp… only for Rodman to FLIP OUT.

He sounds like Hulk Hogan giving a wrestling promo in the following video. You must watch it now:

Then again... really, CNN?!? Why are you giving this man any kind of political platform?

First, Clay Aiken. Now, Steven Seagal?

With the former American Idol runner-up mulling a bid for U.S. Congress, Seagal now says he may also enter the political arena... as a candidate for Governor of Arizona!

In an interview with KNXV-TV, the action star-turned-deputized sheriff - who some believe is the Lamest Guy Ever - said he's open to the position because he doesn't believe the nation's biggest problem is being properly addressed.

No, not Islamic terrorism. But rather border control.

Ten and a half years ago, Clay Aiken rose to fame by winning America's votes. In 2014, he may try to court them again, this time at the ballot box.

Only one district of North Carolina will decide the winner of this contest, though, if he decides to enter it: Clay is considering running for U.S. Congress.

Clay Aiken on the Red Carpet

According to a new report from the Washington Blade, the second-season American Idol runner-up is "actively" laying the ground work for a political run.

He has consulted with political operative Betsy Conti, who worked for former Vice President Al Gore and former North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue.

One Democratic source said Aiken made phone calls to gauge support, talked to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee about a potential bid.

Although it’s unclear when Aiken might announce a decision, the source said Aiken is “actively considering” it and “sounding and acting like a candidate."

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reportedly executed his uncle and a handful of the man’s aides by feeding them to a horde of 120 starving dogs.

Jang Song Thaek, the former #2 official in the regime, is believed to have been stripped naked and tossed into a cage along with five others.

According to the Straits Times of Singapore:

“Then 120 hounds, starved for three days, were allowed to prey on them until they were completely eaten up. This is also called ‘quan jue’, or execution by dogs."

It's called insanity if that's true.

The news of the execution first surfaced in description a Hong Kong newspaper that serves as the official mouthpiece of China’s government there.

However, more established outlets in mainland China have not repeated the account, for whatever that's worth. The account continues as such:

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry is in hot water for making jokes about Mitt Romney's adopted, African-American grandchild on the air last weekend.

The comments came during a segment in which a roster of comedians were riffing on notable photos from the past year, and things went off the rails.

A photo of the Romney family with Mitt's latest grandchild, Kieran Romney, who is adopted and African-American, on Mitt's knee, sparked laughter.

“One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same,” sang out Pia Glenn, one of Harris-Perry’s guests on the show.

Harris-Perry herself said she would like to see the “gorgeous” child and North West, daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, get married some day.

“Can you imagine Mitt Romney and Kanye West as in-laws?” she said.

Despite much controversy over the past two weeks, Duck Dynasty will return on schedule next year, with Phil Robertson an active participant, A&E announced.

The company suspended Robertson indefinitely December 18 following controversial anti-gay comments the 67-year-old made in an interview with GQ.

Duck Dynasty had been on hiatus when the comments went public; the show is set to return in January and to resume filming new episodes this spring.

None of that will change. The network, “after discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups,” says the show will go on.

The Robertson Family

The Robertson family admitted that the anti-gay comments were coarse, but criticized the suspension and implied they would not film without Phil.

Since the national controversy erupted, Phil Robertson has been defiant, reiterating his stance on gays, sin and homosexuality at a Bible study group.

He has been roundly criticized by gay rights groups, but supporters began demanding his reinstatement and even planning a Chick-Phil-A Day.

The network thus found itself in the midst of a PR nightmare, and ultimately decided to distance itself from Phil's views while still bringing back the show.

A&E's statement on the decision, released Friday, reads:

Conrad Barrett was arrested Thursday and charged under federal hate crimes law, which defines a hate crime as “motivated by enmity or animus against a protected class.”

The FBI also lists anti-white crimes as hate crimes, but the fact that he was charged for playing the "knockout game" and assaulting a black man has sparked controversy.

The knockout game, in which an assailant tries to knock out a random bystander with a single punch, has garnered national attention in recent months.

It is unclear whether the "game" has become more popular or whether the Internet has simply allowed for isolated incidents to be broadcast more widely.

The majority of the reported knockout game incidents, however, have involved black men targeting white victims and none triggered federal involvement.

The fact that the Justice Department elected to step in now, when a black man was the victim, has critics saying the government is using the hate-crime statute unevenly.

Donald Green, a political scientist at Columbia University in New York, says:

“The reason why you have black perpetrators and white victims being prosecuted asymmetrically hinges on what evidence there is about why they’re doing what they’re doing."

“If suspects call the victim racial names, and one of the other witnesses testifies to that effect, it would be prosecutable as a hate crime."
