CNN’s holographic wonder

By far, the strangest thing I caught during my many hours of election TV viewing tonight involved CNN's Anderson Cooper inteviewing rapper ... via hologram?!? It seems the Black Eyed Pea (and apparent diehard Obama supporter) was too busy doing, well, something else, to actually show in person, so the network's tech geeks figured a way to beam over his ghostly visage, which stood chatting with Cooper about the events of the day. Seriously weird. As was Cooper's oddly deadpanned signoff on the segment, ", I appreciate you being with us tonight via hologram."
