joined in the fun on Tuesday (April 14) night at the end of a conversation with David Gergen, the director of the Center for Public Leadership, regarding President Obama's last speech about his administration's economic policy.

Gergen concluded by saying that the Republican party is currently in a position of weakness. Having soundly lost the past election, he says that "they're searching for their voice."

"It's hard to talk when you're tea-bagging," Cooper quipped.

What do you think? Was Cooper speaking out of turn or merely stating the obvious?

Brill Bundy has spent her entire career covering TV and pop culture. This is what happens when your parents try and limit your viewing habits to three shows a week. Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
