Anderson Cooper Rips Pat Robertson For Insane AIDS Theory (VIDEO)

Anderson Cooper went after someone who he said he usually tried to ignore. But Pat Robertson's unbelievable and flat-out insane AIDS theory landed him on Cooper's RidicuList on Wednesday.

On Robertson's "700 Club," the TV evangelist said that gay individuals who have AIDS in San Francisco spread the disease by shaking hands with people while wearing rings that can break skin.

"Really?" Cooper said. "A ring that gives you AIDS. I've never seen that particular section of Zales. Have you?"
