During an impromptu early-morning rally, aides danced in circles, shouted "woo!" incessantly, and chanted the names of two staffers.

The best moment comes as Fox News' Carl Cameron looks perplexedly at the circus behind him as he tries to complete a standup -- on the air, it was speculated that the revelers might be Occupiers, and indeed, the raucous reaction would have been out of character for their staid boss.
