Debt Ceiling Debate and 'Bachelorette' Finale Drive Kathie Lee and Hoda to Drink Cough Syrup (VIDEO)

Hoda Kotb watches Kathie Lee Gifford down cough syrup on 'Today'It's only Tuesday, but it's already been a long week for Kathie Lee Gifford. First, there was the debt ceiling standoff in Congress, which Jay Leno joked had driven Gifford and Hoda Kotb to chug cough syrup. Gifford and Kotb obliged on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), showing Leno's monologue clip and sipping on some syrup. And then 'The Bachelorette' finale just made everything worse.

An excited Kotb introduced a clip of Moday's proposal on 'The Bachelorette' while Gifford rolled her eyes and mugged, doing a remarkable impression of Kristen Wiig's impression of her. Gifford narrated over the proposal, "Oh shut up!" The source of Gifford's disgust was that the Bachelorette in question allowed both guys to propose, even though she had made her choice already.

The final straw was when the Bachelorette told Ben, the guy she didn't choose, that his proposal had been "unexpected." "Unexpected? They had a production meeting and you know he said, 'She's going to say no,'" she said, screaming and grabbing her bottle of syrup. "It makes me crazy." She then took a long chug. At least it made her forget about the debt ceiling.

Kids there's probably some in the cabinet right now, go go go.
You can't have alcohol, but that doesn't mean you cant be like Kathie and Hoda.

Good work ladies.

I am just happy to see thew old crows are still using the caricatures of their (younger, prettier) sisters on the background poster. Don't spend any money on updates, NBC . . .
