CNN host Anderson Cooper decided on Tuesday that CNN contributor Alex Castellanos must be “high” after the Republican strategist tried to explain Sen. Ted Cruz’ (R-TX) push to shut down the government by saying “he’s having bunny sex.”

During a late night discussion on the lawn of the Capitol about the shutdown and the debt ceiling, Cooper pointed out that Castellanos agreed with Democratic strategist Paul Begala that Cruz miscalculated with his brinkmanship.

“A friend explained to me today, finally, what Ted Cruz is doing,” Castellanos said. “And I finally understand, he’s having bunny sex.”

“This is the late-night edition of 360,” Cooper gasped.

“In nature, there are boom and bust cycles,” Castellanos continued. “The snowshoe hare, every ten years, multiplies six fold.”

“Are you high?” Cooper wondered.

“I’m high,” Castellanos admitted. “I wish I was. The snowshoe hare — I thought it’s a marvelous explanation — every ten years, multiplies six fold. Bunnies like sex apparently. But the boom produces a bust. They press their food supply, they invite predators.”

“Right now, Ted Cruz, what’s he’s doing, feels good,” the GOP strategist added. “He’s growing his supporters. It’s leading the Republican Party, I think, into a bust.”

“I think you’re digging a ditch, Alex,” Cooper pointed out.

But Castellanos wasn’t finished offering analogies: “Ted Cruz just drove the entire Republican Party through a car wash in a convertible and everybody got wet but him.”

“We got to take a break,” Cooper interrupted. “Gentlemen, thank you. Alex, I’m still trying to figure out what the bunny sex was about.”

“We’ll have a man-to-man talk later,” Castellanos quipped.

“I definitely did not learn that in my class,” the CNN host concluded.
