Virginia House of Delegates member Barbara Comstock has responded to revelations that “Anderson Cooper 360″ guest host Soledad O’Brien was reading from a Talking Points Memo email during a contentious debate last night.

O’Brien sneaked a look at the printout in an effort to respond to Comstock’s point that the House’s proposed budget was a bipartisan creation.

From Comstock’s Facebook fan page:

YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS UP: Soledad O’Brien was reading straight from liberal talking points ON AIR during an interview I did last night with her. Of course she didn’t read this op-ed where liberal Senator Ron Wyde (sic) (Dem from Oregon) defended the Ryan-Wyden Medicare plan — he actually called it the WYDEN-RYAN plan!

@BarbaraComstock she forgot to take her Obama sticker off her forehead. #fail

O’Brien filled in for host Anderson Cooper again Tuesday night, but there was no mention of the incident. Nor was there a quick peek at a blog — at least not one caught on camera.
