Brit makes a funny

I was flipping through the channels on an elliptical machine at the gym yesterday when I caught a segment on FNC about how Barack Obama is closing the gap on Hillary Clinton in Pennsylvania.

Washington bureau chief Brit Hume explained that Obama's numbers tend to increase when he gets out among voters, as he has done over the past couple of weeks on his bus tour across the Keystone State. Such encounters allow people to be able to see for themselves the so-called "rock star quality" that has made Obama one of the only two Democratic candidates still standing.

People hear Obama speak, and they leave "dazzled," high on the "Kool-Aid excitement" of his rallies.

Brit Hume made a Kool-Aid joke. I just thought that was hilarious, especially coming from such a straight guy as he.
