The sex tape featuring John Edwards and Rielle Hunter going at it will be destroyed as part of a settlement between Hunter and ex-Edwards aide Andrew Young.

The imminent destruction of sex tapes featuring Edwards and Hunter was mandated as per the agreement between Rielle, Edwards' ex-plaything, and Young.

Orange County, N.C., Superior Court Judge Carl Fox on Thursday signed the settlement agreement between Andrew Young, his wife and Rielle Hunter.

Hunter sued the pair, who ended up with the John Edwards sex tape somehow.

  • Rielle Hunter and Quinn

Hunter accused Andrew and Cheri Young of invasion of privacy, and sought to reclaim "materials" she said belong to her, including personal photos and the sex tape.

While the settlement addresses the transfer and destruction of videos, photos and other documents, no money was awarded and the Youngs admit no liability.

The court clerk has the honor of physically destroying the sex tape.

Meanwhile, the Youngs must make a good-faith effort to ensure that the copy of the video that they gave to the U.S. government is likewise destroyed.

The former aide will get back his family videos and pics, though they can't monetize any including Rielle Hunter or her daughter, Edwards' love child.

If you're running for national office, lovable Seinfeld loser George Costanza may not be a figure you should readily and enthusiastically equate yourself to.

But Mitt Romney did, and now Jason Alexander is commenting on it.

In his opening remarks at the Arizona Republican debate Wednesday, Mitt said, "I want to restore America's promise, and I'm going to do that."

Before he could continue, the crowd began applauding, so the candidate quipped, "As George Costanza would say, 'when they're applauding, stop.'"

Romney and Alexander

Jason Alexander, who played Costanza on the long-running series, used it as an opening to poke some fun at Romney and his penchant for changing positions.

He tweets, "Thrilled that Gov. Romney enjoys my old character. I enjoyed the character he used 2 b 2. If he'd embrace that again, he'd b a great candidate."

Ohhhh, snap.

Just FYI, the actual quote was spoken from Jerry Seinfeld, speaking to George about how to end a conversation, though Constanza famously followed the advice.

Seinfeld says, "When you hit that high note, you say goodnight and walk off." Still, for the purposes of Romney's use, he was close enough this time.

As has become our post-debate tradition, here's a highlight reel of last night's Republican CNN gathering in Arizona ... featuring Ron Paul and only Ron Paul.

He may be marginalized by the mainstream media, but he's shown no signs of quitting the GOP race, and was dishing it out left and right Wednesday.

Like a boss.

In particular, Paul took it to Rick Santorum so hard over his federal spending record, some are speculating that he made an alliance with Mitt Romney.

It's probably just that - speculation - but make no mistake, the Texas Congressman was on his game at last night's Republican debate. Take a look:

WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning was formally charged on Thursday ahead of a court-martial that could see the US soldier sentenced to life in prison.

Manning was charged with 22 crimes, the most serious of which is "aiding the enemy," for allegedly turning over a trove of classified U.S. documents.

The information was later published by WikiLeaks in one of the most serious intelligence breaches in American history, and Manning has been charged accordingly.

The 24-year-old Manning is accused of passing along hundreds of thousands of military field reports from Iraq and Afghanistan and US diplomatic cables.

WikiLeaks got them from November 2009-May 2010, when he was serving in Iraq.

The leak of the military documents shed light on civilian deaths, while the diplomatic cables sparked a firestorm within the State Department by disclosing the private remarks of heads of state and candid observations by senior U.S. officials.

The U.S. government slammed WikiLeaks, saying it threatened national security and even the lives of foreigners working with the military and U.S. embassies.

WikiLeaks supporters view the site as an important freedom of information source, a whistleblower that exposed wrongdoing, calling Manning as a political prisoner.

Arizona hosted the 20th GOP debate of this election cycle last night, and what followed was a wide-ranging discussion of issues ... and a familiar personal slap-fest.

It's all the same, only the names change. Wednesday, it was Rick Santorum in the coveted, yet also unfortunate role of the guy Mitt Romney trains his sights on.

Romney and Santorum clashed over the federal government's power in a high-stakes debate that might have been the last in the roller-coaster campaign.

Ron Paul was Ron Paul, defiantly making the case for liberty and getting far too little screen time. Newt Gingrich? He may have effectively called it quits.

The combative, knock-'em-out Newt was AWOL. Instead, the jovial Uncle Newt was back, playing everyone's wingman (and promising $2.50/gallon gas).

It was like mid-to-late 2011 again as Gingrich the enthusiastic, vigorously nodding candidate who would never speak ill of a fellow Republican resurfaced.

Even with his now-infamous media foil, CNN's John King, as the moderator, too. Go figure. A shift in strategy as he looks for a third comeback? Maybe.

He'd surely take it if it happened. But equally likely is that his moment passed, he knows it, and is looking to mend fences with his rivals and America.

The debate was held in the southwestern state of Arizona six days before primaries there and in Romney's native Michigan, which he loves everything about.

Romney still faces skepticism among Republicans who dislike his shifting stances on issues, but it was Santorum being called a "fake" conservative by Paul.

Cyborg Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is campaigning in Michigan ahead of Tuesday's primary, and boy, does he just love everything about that state!

Mitt's pandering speech last week was remarkable in how forced it sounded, even by his standards, as the Michigan native tried to convince residents he is one of them.

It was a performance reminiscent of Steve Carell in Anchorman, when Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy asks, "Are you just naming things you see and saying you love them?"

Watch a mashup of that scene and Romney's press conference below:

The trees are the right height. Take note, Michigan Department of Tourism. There's your new tagline if ever we've heard one. "Pure Michigan" was so 2011.

Whenever he leaves office, President Barack Obama may have a found a new career. Who would have guessed his reelection strategy would involve more singing?

Last month, the Commander-in-Chief sang Al Green at Harlem's Apollo Theater. Then last night, he shared the stage with Mick Jagger, B.B. King and Jeff Beck.

The all-star musical lineup performed in the East Room of the White House, with the President joining in for an ensemble rendition of "Sweet Home Chicago" ...

The full version of In Performance at the White House: Red, White and Blues is set to air on local PBS stations on next Monday, February 27, at 9 p.m. ET.

For most of the evening, Barack and Michelle Obama took in the concert from the audience, swaying in their seats and occasionally getting up to dance.

But after some prodding from Buddy Guy, who referenced Obama's Apollo performance and told him, "You gotta keep it up," the President took the stage.

Taking the microphone offered by Rolling Stones frontman Jagger, Obama sang a few bars - again, surprisingly well - and handed the mic off to B.B. King.

"This music speaks to something universal," Obama said, as quoted by the AP.

"No one goes through life without both joy and pain, triumph and sorrow. The blues gets all of that, sometimes with just one lyric or one note."

When raging homophobe and Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum rolls into Cumming, Georgia, to a campaign stop, the puns are almost too easy.

Still, this headline, first posted on Buzzfeed, defies description:

Santorum Headline

For more on Rick Santorum, a real "family values" conservative who has shot to the top tier of the GOP race against all odds, just Google Rick Santorum.

It's eye-opening, the etymology of the former Senator's name.

Well played, Internet ... and CUMMING headline writer.

David Cross once took a hit of cocaine while sitting just a few feet away from President Barack Obama.

The Arrested Development star makes this admission in the March issue of Playboy, referring to the 2009 White House Correspondents Dinner and explaining to the magazine:

“I ducked under the table and did it. It wasn’t like I got high. The jolt was similar to licking an empty espresso cup. It wasn't about that. It was just about being able to say that I did it, that I did cocaine in the same room as the President."

The White House Correspondents Dinner is an annual event, hosted by comedians such as Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert, during which the President lets loose with a joke-laden speech that typically takes aim at opponents such as Donald Trump.

True American heroes simply don't come any truer than George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, the two great Presidents honored with today's national holiday.

Our very first president, Washington led the rebellion over Great Britain, crafting a land of opportunity, where life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are held dear.

Four score and seven years later, Lincoln delivered his vaunted Gettysburg Address, steadfastly vying to preserve the nation his predecessors fought so valiantly for.

The bottom line here is that both were the best of their time, remain legends today, and ranking their achievements and indelible marks is close to impossible.

Comparing 19th and 18th Century fashion, however? You're on it! Vote:

And the Winner is?

They were both A-plus chief executives, but which U.S. President do you love more, Abraham Lincoln or George Washington? That's what we wanna know! View Poll »
