Following the conclusion of Sen. John McCain‘s speech on MSNBC, anchor Keith Olbermann threw it to various reporters around the Convention. But when he went to Andrea Mitchell for what was supposed to be an interview with Tom Ridge, a successful balloon drop got in the way.
Mitchell tries to begin her report, but admits she’s getting, “bombarded by the balloons,” and throws it back to Olbermann.
Olbermann calls it, “the reporting equivalent of Chuck E. Cheese,” and instead goes to Brian Williams and Tom Brokaw, who continue the jokes. Williams warns of the, “balloon wielding thugs,” on the floor. “Free Andrea Mitchell!” he says.
