Hand Puppet Invades CNN Broadcast (VIDEO)

On Tuesday on CNN, in the moments leading up to President Obama's remarks on terrorism and airline safety, someone waiting for the president to speak got a little bit silly.

While Wolf Blitzer discussed the matter at hand with CNN foreign affairs correspondent Jill Dougherty, the lower right corner of the screen stayed tuned on the president's empty podium, with a small caption reading "Pres. Obama To Speak SOON... " As Dougherty opined, a hand crept in front of the camera and proceeded to hand-puppet a talking head. The puppetry goes on for about 5 seconds, before it ducks out of sight. A second later the camera switches views.
