CNN Dance Party! Last night at the CNN Grill — with which avid readers of my Twitter are by now well-acquainted — an impromptu dance party started up sometime after the speeches ended. (We're not sure how much time, but probably enough for that CNN Red Ale to hit the sweet spot.) We were having a fascinating discussion about Twitter with Jon Klein, when the first strains of "I Want You Back" by the Jackson 5 came on, and suddenly there were CNN pundit-stars Donna Brazile and Roland Martin turning the front section of the CNN Grill into an impromptu dance floor, putting on a very different performance than that to which CNN's viewing audience has become accustomed. Personally, I think a dancing pundit show might be just what CNN needs. I am pretty sure Lou Dobbs has some secret moves to share with us.
p.s. Is it just us, or was Brazile's napkin-as-dance-prop perhaps a shout-out to non-boo — and non-Jew — Anderson Cooper? All that napkin waving sort of reminded us of a Jewish wedding. If you don't know what I mean, and you haven't seen Yentl, then please enjoy this random video from a Jewish wedding, courtesy of YouTube.
