Happening Now: Wolf Blitzer Dances The Dougie At Soul Train Awards

You can take the boy out of the Situation Room, but can you really ever take the Sit Room out of the delightfully still inside-the-Beltway boy?

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer would very much like to set the record straight. Appearing at the Soul Train Awards Sunday night on BET, Blitzer showed off a side of the Blitz we rarely see as part of “The Best Political Team on Television (BPTOT).”

“I did not come here to the Soul Train Awards to report the news, to talk politics. The real reason I came here tonight: because I want to learn to do the Dougie. They don’t have to teach me to do the Dougie. You want to know why? Because I can learn to do the Dougie from the man himself: Doug E. Fresh.”

As frequent viewers of the Sit Room can attest, Blitzer has suggested before that he has “moves,” but he refrains from showing them off while in his role as CNN political heavyweight. But on stage, ready to let his hair down (or beard down?), Blitzer held nothing back.

What follows can hardly be described in words. Watch the video and enjoy, from BET:
