Wolf Blitzer Compares Caucus To Syrian Uprising, Says 'OMG' (VIDEO)

Wolf Blitzer had quite the election night on Tuesday.

You might not have noticed it, but the buttoned-up CNN anchor has been letting his hair down recently. From his repeat performance at the Soul Train awards to his historic chat with Kermit the Frog, Mr. Blitzer has seemingly decided to show his lighter side a little more. Now, he's embracing his inner g-chatter by exclaiming "OMG!" when there's a particularly close vote in a GOP election contest.

He had previously done so when covering the insanely close vote in the Iowa caucuses. While covering the then-close race in Colorado on Wednesday (Rick Santorum eventually won), Blitzer apparently cried "OMG!" in the commercial break. An amused Anderson Cooper asked him to explain himself, which Blitzer happily did. He still said "OMG" in the same way he would if he was announcing the president's arrival to the State of the Union.

Speaking about Iowa, Blitzer said, "that was worthy of OMG and right now in Colorado there's an OMG going on." Oh, Wolf.


Of course, being Wolf Blitzer, he can still pull out the odd line. Speaking to Cooper at a different point in the evening, Blitzer compared the caucus the network was watching (the other cable news networks having decided not to change their regular programming for the occasion) to the uprising in Syria.

"Every time we see these little actions, these caucuses unfold, democracy in action, as we're speaking, people are dying in Syria because they would like to have a caucus, they'd like to have a primary," he said. "They can't have one. We're having ours here in the United States. Let's keep some perspective on what's going on."
