MSNBC investigates the Springfield/Cobra Commander connection

The now infamous image of Springfield, IL mayor J. Michael Houston giving the nefarious Cobra Commander the key to the city has been propagated to all corners of the Internet world at this point, but I gotta give MSNBC props for taking it at least one step further.

They actually reached out to Houston to inquire as to why he’d be fraternizing with known terrorists and actually spoke with the Commander himself.  It’s pretty hilarious.
