THE RIDICULIST: Best Forecast Ever!
BLOGGER'S COMMENTARY: Maybe it's just me, but I'm not sure President Obama can ever do anything that David Gergen will agree with completely. I'm sorry, but I'm over it. After months, if not years, of hearing Gergen complain about President Obama lacking leadership qualities, tonight Gergren's commentary started with the President showed leadership today, BUT. I knew that "but" was coming. President Obama even stated in his comments today that it would be hard and pundits would speak out against his proposals. I say, let's give these proposals a chance. Let's let the public be heard. Call your congressmen and let them know how you feel. Perhaps it's time 360 pulled out some old tapes that showed Anderson with his panel including Gergen saying President Obama would never get a health care hill passed, would never get 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' overturned. Anderson needs to quit being "cynical" (his word) and discussing the political ramifications of every move with pundits and just report the news/the facts. Nothing is impossible when enough people step up and let their voices be heard. There were executive orders signed today that are a step in the right direction. Now it's time for the "people" to be heard, Congressmen to vote and pundits to quit being naysayers. -- Wonz

And a couple more photos from Sean Penn's Haiti Fundraiser in LA Saturday night ~
Not sure the reason for the hat, but as host, Anderson injected a little humor, among other things ~
Anderson Cooper Can’t Even Drop F-Bombs Without Sounding Adorable
Anderson Cooper took to the podium at Sean Penn‘s second annual Help Haiti Home benefit on Jan. 12, and while he was there, he let the F-bombs fly. In context, of course.
After Penn gave a speech littered with swears, Cooper had his turn. ... “I didn’t know we were allowed to say f—,” Cooper joked. “I would have said f— so much more.”
Cooper recalled that upon first meeting Penn in Haiti, he didn’t quite know how to treat the actor, quipping, “I worried if I pointed a camera at him, he’d beat me up.”
The CNN host also promised that (time permitting) he would serenade Penn with Bette Midler’s ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’ — a promise which sadly never came to fruition. Way to break our hearts with your lies, Anderson Cooper.
