Gingrich: No one asked me to drop out

"It's now a two-person race," says GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich following Rick Santorum's withdrawal from the field. Showing no signs of dropping out himself, CNN's Wolf Blitzer asks Gingrich why he thinks he still has a chance.

Cooper on 'RidicuList' for giggle fit

CNN’s Anderson Cooper is in damage control mode after (another) on-air giggle fit. He’s apologizing to the people of Buffalo who may have thought he was insulting one of the city’s traditions, when in fact he was insulting himself. Take a look. We dare you not to laugh.

      Michael, you may not be dumb but your grammer definitely needs some work. It's "I hear really well." Just an observation.

    With the prison population being mostly black, Zimmerman is going to need PC all the time.

      Just remember, you were all slaves and when you didn't do what we said we beat the crap out of you and we liked taking the women at our leisure. You will always be our slaves 🙂

    Another dark day for "justice" in a state that doesn't have the best record in that area to begin with. The for-profit racists, al, jessie, bejie jealous...all should be proud. Now, where are these for-profir racists when all the black on black killings happen? can't get no face time on that issue, right. So crawl back under your rocks, jessie and al

      And where were they when a black man shot a young unarmed veteran while his daughter looked on. Happened in Valrico Florida. There was hardly any news coverage and no one marched. They had argued about a skate boarder and the marine tried to stop him from pulling the weapon. The rest is historoy and the black man is still free. Google it!

    I tire of the George was following him BS. George was in his truck and observing Trayvon, he was on the phone in a recorded conversation with the dispatcher. Trayvon took off, George got out of his truck trying to see where he ran, he lost sight of him. George continued to talk to the dispatcher for 2 minutes and never knew where Trayvon was. After hanging up he probably kept looking and Trayvon confronted George.

      Blacks will refuse to belive facts. It runs in the family. They want it the way they want it. He will never spend any time in prison. They do not have the evidence to convict him.

    Your blanket statement of Black people is ignorant. Truely. You can't assume ALL people of one race think the exact same way. I can tell you honestly, the race of either party matters the least to me. Having a child of mixed race (my son is of Puerto Rican, Black and White decent) race is the very last thing I look at on any person at all. What I care about is that Trayvon Martin was someone's baby. George Zimmerman, although not a child, he's someone son. Two families are heavily impacted by this tragedy forever regardless of the outcome of his trail. George Zimmerman alone has to live with the fact that he took someone's life for the rest of his. That cannot be easy. And he's going to judged by a higher power than anything this earth has, this is for certain. So you can keep all that "blacks refuse to look at facts...blah, blah, blah." We do not all think/act/believe the same ways/things.

    Really? The definition of the word follow is: moves in the same direction.

    So if, as you state, "George got out of his truck trying to see where he ran", that would me he followed him.
