Anderson Cooper's Eyeball Issue Is Resolved

Manderson down! We repeat, Manderson down! It turns out our favorite well-biceped broadcaster has just undergone surgery to remove some sort of skin cancer from underneath his left eye.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Also Loves Anderson's Biceps!

Anderson on Conan
Readers! You are the worst! Why didn't anybody tell us about this? Last night, we were in bed before Conan O'Brien went on, so we missed Anderson Cooper's appearance. But apparently an incredibly, stupendously amazing thing happened. HE TALKED ABOUT HIS BICEPS. And not even just in a chitchat-y "Sometimes I use these things for lifting and gesticulating" way. He told an anecdote about how big they are. He's totally ripping off our best work! It was after Conan asked him whether anyone had ever thrown him off his game before he had to moderate a debate (as if anyone could ruffle our Manderson). Cooper then told a story about how, once, before a Republican debate at the Ronald Reagan library, he spotted Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in the audience. Click above to view the clip. The important stuff comes about 3:11 in.
Anderson: What was weird is, and I've never met the man, and we didn't talk then or anything but moments before the debate started, he looked at me and motioned to his bicep, and he was like, "You've been working out." And I was completely thrown. Pleased that Arnold Schwarzenegger had noticed that I'd been working out, I guess.
Conan: What if he was telling you, "I will crush you with my bicep"?
Anderson: It could have been that. I could have misinterpreted it. For the first five minutes, I was flustered by that.
OMG. Our campaign to get everyone to recognize the glory of Anderson Cooper's arms has just taken a great leap forward! Do you think he gets flustered when we talk about his biceps? Click here to read the rest of our loving, caressing coverage of Anderson Cooper's twin torso turtles.

John King Wary of ‘Superdelegates,’ Anderson Cooper’s Guns

John King
Earlier this afternoon we cornered CNN anchor John King, who’d just finished with a CNN/Time live-panel discussion in the Time Warner Center, and discussed the irony of the Democratic-nomination system, in which delegates in each state primary and caucus are awarded proportionally, instead of a winner-take-all system. “Look, it’s a political party; they have the right to write their own rules,” said King, who used to sit in on DNC meetings as an AP reporter back in the day. “But one of the interesting things about it, if it keeps going on like it is, you could have a group of roughly 800 people — superdelegates — who decide who the nominee is, which you could argue is going [back] to the old smoke-filled back rooms, which is the least democratic way to do it.” This idea confused and saddened us, so we changed the subject to Anderson Cooper’s ostentatious biceps. “I give Anderson an enormous amount of credit, knowing what this business does to you, especially in a crazy year like this,” King said, possibly relieved someone had given him the chance to speak on the subject. “I’m giving myself a C-plus, at best, in getting to the gym and being more healthy, and the fact that Anderson can get an A throughout all this is a tribute to dedication and time-schedule discipline,” he said — quickly adding, “and I curse him for it.” —Dan Amira
