Sununu Tells CNN's O'Brien 'It's Always Good to Come on the Groupie Channel'

Mitt Romney senior adviser John Sununu had another contentious encounter with CNN's Soledad O'Brien Wednesday.

At the conclusion of their lengthy Starting Point segment about Tuesday's presidential debate, O'Brien thanked her guest for coming with Sununu responding, "It's always good to come on the groupie channel" (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

After saying goodbye to Sununu, O'Brien told her in-studio guests, "I always need a cocktail after I speak to him. I really need like a vodka and tonic after I talk to him."

Maybe a vodka and tonic would be a good thing BEFORE she talked to him to assist in dialing back her advocacy.

Just a thought.
