What a drag: dueling El Paso news vans get their motors running

Anderson Cooper's "What Were They Thinking" segment on CNN recently got all huffy about two drag-racing news vans in El Paso.

"Stay classy, El Paso," he jabbed while sharing the segment with bimbo-ish anchor-ette Erica Hill. Remember, this is from the news purist who used to host The Mole on ABC. And who still occasionally subs for Regis Philbin on Live with Regis & Kelly.
