You Have to Give Her Credit
After pulling a Frank Drebin and leaving her mike on while going to the bathroom (you can watch it below), CNN's Kyra Phillips showed up on Letterman last night to present the top ten list:
Top Ten Kyra Phillips Excuses Presented by CNN Anchor Kyra Phillips:
10. "Still haven't mastered complicated On/Off switch."
9. "Larry King told me he does this all the time."
8. "How was I supposed to know we had a reporter embedded in the bathroom?"
7. "I honestly never knew this sort of thing was frowned upon."
6. "Couldn't resist chance to win $10,000 on 'America's Funniest Home Videos."'
5. "I was set up by those bastards at Fox News."
4. "Oh, like YOU'VE never gone to the bathroom and had it broadcast on national television!"
3. "I just wanted that hunky Lou Dobbs to notice me."
2. "OK, so I was drunk and couldn't think straight."
1. "You have to admit, it made the speech a lot more interesting."
Okay, so it wasn't Clinton showing up on Carson after his brutal speech nominating Dukakis (that was over 18 years ago--boy I feel old), but it was still pretty savvy.
