Anderson Cooper gets pissed on 360 at "Birther" LTC Lakin & his dumbass lawyer.
I LOVE ANDERSON COOPER!
Y'all probably have heard this but I hadn't yet since my TV has been happily limited to watching American Idol and Lost. But my husband DVRed this today because he knew i would like seeing it.
The story is that LTC Terry Lakin (who is an army doctor) is being court martialed because he refuses to be deployed for his tour of duty in Afghanistan. Why?
Here's why: because LTC Lakin doesn't believe President Obama was really born in the U.S. Lakin brought his attorney to 360 last Friday to talk to Anderson. (Only he didn't do much talking at all.) I thought we were done with this Birther nonsense!
I don't believe i have ever seen Anderson Cooper get pissed before and it's something to watch.
(He reminded me of how Jon Stewart handles the uber conservative's ideology when they spout it off on his show.) Anderson produces evidence about Obama's birth certificate but the attorney (who does most ALL of the talking), thereby frustrating the hell out of Anderson Cooper, refuses to budge.
At one point an exasperated Anderson interrupts the asshole attorney saying, "Again, can't the lieutenant not talk for himself, he IS an adult."
I also like how Cooper asks the questions with the emphasis on "Colonel" so that he can try and get a word out of Lakin.
What's very interesting is The American Patriot Foundation/Safeguard our Constitution is trying to raise $500,000 for the defense of this Lieutenant Lakin. $500,000?
Anyway, if you like Anderson Cooper, it is worth watching all the way through.
I cannot for the life of me believe these Birther Bastards. OMG. I don't know what makes me more crazy: Sarah Palin , The Tea Party, or the Birthers. I blame them all for my high blood pressure. I love CNN because of Anderson Cooper, but i think American Idol is better for my health.
I also believe the Birther shit is a smokescreen against Obama because the people that believe this can't admit they are racist and instead invent their own reason for being against him. It's so freaking ridiculous.
