Mama Said Knock You Out!
Yep, getting home in time to watch Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper ring in the new year paid off big time, since I got to hear her yell at a heckler, "Screw you! Do I come to your job and knock the dicks out of your mouth?!" Yeah, she said it. On national TV. Perhaps it was delayed on the West Coast or something. But we heard it here in Chicago, loud and clear. I'm shocked -- shocked that CNN didn't have her on a 7-second delay!
Oh, and the guy who made the vulgar gesture at Anderson's usual partner? Classy. I liked it when she told the drunken idiot, "OK, it's time to go now." Putting reporters in the eye of the drunken storm is never a good idea. I imagine there are many memos and such going around CNN in the next day or so. Loved Anderson's puffy coat, though.
Happy 2009! It's gotten off to a brilliant start!
