    Is there a full moon? Did Hell just freeze over? We actually have an interview on CNN where someone actually tries to get some answers out of the Obama campaign.

    Quite edgy. Here's a bit of it and I'll post the link.

    ANDERSON COOPER: President Obama essentially double downed on the Bain attacks today, saying this is not a distraction from the campaign, this is going to be a centerpiece of the campaign.

    At the same time, critics say the attacks on Bain are hypocritical. As we pointed out a couple of nights ago, the same day last week that the previous Bain ad came out, President Obama was fund-raising at the home of this guy, Tony James.

    Mr. President is president of Blackstone. Blackstone is a private equity firm that is actually a lot bigger than Bain and like Bain has bought companies and cut payrolls. Now, in that ad, a laid-off worker likens the head of Bain to a vampire, the same night Mr. Obama sits down for dinner with the head of Blackstone.

    There's the contradiction. This weekend's events with Mayor Booker show why many within the president's own party think the Obama campaign's Bain strategy is very much a double-edged sword.

    Joining me tonight, Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt.

    LaBolt never answers a question.

    I kind of like Anderson Cooper...but he still allowed the parrot to make runaway statements.
    The good thing is it clearly revealed that this guy is a puppet and will only say what he has been trained to say for hours and hours before the interview took place.
    Having said this - I really - REALLY hope that they will continue to go down the route of Bain. Like here - it will show that Obama wines and dines with the same companies, and accepts money from them. That is over the top hypocritical and shows what he is made of....cotton candy.

    I love it when Rick Perry was ripping Mitt Romney a new butthole at one of the Republican debates and Romney cried out "Anderson, Ricky won't stoooop. Make him stoooop. He's not being fair". Begging help from the gay guy. Hilarious. Wonder if he was dreaming of giving Anderson a haircut? Romney is such a pussy.
