More interesting than anything the President had to say or stutter rather. Only real problem I see is having to deal with the "control freak" sister in law.

Yup, how does one resolve that breach of etiquette; talk about sidling through a field of land mines......

Completely unprofessional -- funny, but unprofessional.

Jay Leno replayed it last night and wondered what Thanksgiving dinner would be like for their families...

Are you sure that was an oversight?

Sounds like the best "hard news" coverage CNN has had all year....

Oh man, that's freaking funny in one way, but I sure feel sorry for her on a personal level. How embarrassing!

Was she talking about a guy that was married and that his wife was a control freak? Does that mean she was contemplating an affair with him? LOL
At least we did not hear her piss, fart or let loose in the loo. She is only human. Some technician is without a job I am sure.

I think she said it was her brother-in-law who was the control freak, and worse. Actually, there were some obvious loo-sounds, including zippers zipping/unzipping, flushing, etc. but I didn't hear her "let loose." Or at least they had the desency not to play that part... I think she forgot to turn off her mic. She will be a long time living that down. I'm not sure her brother in law will ever forgive her.
