His fans cheer as he crosses the finish line: "C'mon A-Poop!" "Go Pooper!"

A-Poop? It's short for Anderson Pooper, the name of the adorable, differently-abled dachshund pup who competed in a weiner dog race in Washington last week. Was he a medalist? It won't matter when you hear how excited the crowd becomes while watching this dog-on-wheels.

Anderson Cooper Destroys Lying TX GOP Lawmaker's Defense of Gay 'Reparative Therapy' Platform: VIDEO

Exgay_cooper

Texas State Rep. Bryan Hughes (R) appeared on AC360 last night to defend the Texas Republican Party's decision to add language to its platform supporting gay "reparative therapy".

The AP reported:

Under the new plank, the Texas Republican Party recognizes "the legitimacy and efficacy of counseling, which offers reparative therapy and treatment for those patients seeking healing and wholeness from their homosexual lifestyle."

Hughes argues that doctors are divided on the issue when that's just not true, and Anderson set him straight:

"It’s really just not accurate to say that doctors are evenly divided. I could give you a list: the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Counseling Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the American School Counselors' Association, the National Association of School Psychologists, National Association of Social Workers. They represent half a million mental health professionals, they all say this is not a mental disorder. It’s not something that needs to be cured....Does it concern you, again, that your party is now backing a form of therapy which basically every major medical organization says doesn’t work, can be harmful, and which many of the people who have been through it say it doesn’t work and is bad for kids?"

Hughes responded:

"No one is saying that God doesn’t love people as they are. There’s nothiing in the platform about that. No one is trying to take that position. Every one of us makes mistakes, makes decisions we’re not proud of. God loves each one of us, and he offers us a way for us to deal with sin and bad choices. But I do strongly disagree with what he said about God not loving people."

Anderson wasn't having it:

"The fact that you view being gay, or you characterize it as a 'mistake,' or something that should be changed really kind of maybe says more about your position than what your words actually say."

Ac_kushnir

It's the gift of schadenfreude that keeps on giving. After grabbing headlines for stomping off of her own morning show in moral outrage over Michael Sam's kiss with his boyfriend, and then setting Twitter ablaze when it was revealed she had Chippendales dancers half-naked on the show just a few months prior (video here!), Dallas' Amy Kushnir has now made it to Anderson Cooper's "Ridiculist." As Cooper put it, "If you happen to be playing Predictable Excuse-Laden Intolerance Bingo at home, get ready to mark some boxes, folks."

You can watch Cooper expose her hypocrisy in that tactful manner he's known for AFTER THE JUMP...

Donald Sterling Digs Himself a Deeper Hole in Anderson Cooper Interview: VIDEO

Last night CNN aired the full Anderson Cooper interview with banned-for-life LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling, none of which helped Sterling out of the hole he has dug himself following the release of a recording in which he told his girlfriend not to bring black people to his games or appear with them in photos.

Some of Sterling's most jaw-dropping comments last night were about Magic Johnson:

"What has he done, can you tell me? Big Magic Johnson, what has he done?...He's got AIDS. Did he do any business? Did he help anyone in South LA?...Well, what kind of a guy goes to every city, has sex with every girl, then he catches HIV? Is that someone we want to respect and tell our kids about? I think he should be ashamed of himself. I think he should go into the background. But what does he do for the black people? He doesn't do anything.

Donald Sterling Makes Pathetic Beg for Forgiveness, Insults Magic Johnson in Anderson Cooper Interview: VIDEO

Sterling

In an excerpt from an interview that will air on Monday, L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling apologizes and begs for forgiveness but can't tell Anderson Cooper why he has waited until now to do so.

Asked Sterling: "Am I entitled to one mistake, am I, after 35 years? I mean, I love my league, I love my partners. Am I entitled to one mistake?”

He then insults Magic Johnson, telling Anderson that he has spoken with him:

“He’s a good person. I mean, what am I going to say? Has he done everything he can do to help minorities? I don’t think so. But I’ll say it, he’s great. But I don’t think he’s a good example for the children of Los Angeles.”
