CNN anchor broadcasts live from the ladies room

There is nothing newsworthy going on in there. In fact, I like to pretend women don't do that sort of thing.

Kyra Phillips, anchor of CNN's Live From, unwittingly upstaged U.S. President George W. Bush's speech in New Orleans this week with an on-air analysis of her husband and the marriage of her brother -- all live from a CNN bathroom.

Kyra, you may think the world revolves around you and all but let me assure you of something. I couldn't care less about your marriage. Your brother's marriage, however, is a different story. Please, tell me more.

Unaware that her wireless microphone was live during her break, Ms. Phillips could be heard overriding Mr. Bush's prepared address Tuesday as he marked the anniversary of hurricane Katrina.

Oh man, what could be more embarrassing then having the entire nation tuning in to hear Bush speak to the people of the now-disaster-area New Orleans only to eavesdrop on you dropping your boys off at the pool?
"Hi, this is Kyra Phillips live and I, ugh, I...ate a lot of corn last night."

In conversation with an unidentified woman, Ms. Phillips dismissed most men as "assholes" but called herself "very lucky in that regard. My husband is handsome and he is genuinely . . . a really passionate, compassionate, great, great human being. And they exist. They do exist. They're hard to find. Yup. But they are out there."

How sweet. Say, do they teach you to take off your mic before going pee-pee at TV News Reporter school or is that something you have to learn the hard way? By the way, I am deeply offended that you think men in general are assholes but your husbands a great human being. I've met him. He's an asshole too.
