Gov. Bobby Jindal criticizes fellow Republicans: 'Stop being the stupid party'

Louisiana Governor and potential 2016 presidential candidate Bobby Jindal accused the party of being 'stupid' at a gathering of Republicans Thursday night.

" We have to stop being the stupid party, it's time for a new republican party that talks like adults." Jindal added, It's time for us to articulate our plans and our visions for america in real terms. It's no secret we've had a number of republicans this year damage our brands with bizarre and offensive comments. I'm here to say we've had enough of that."

Why the fascination with Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer?

In Davos, Switzerland, the world's movers and shakers clamored to hear from Yahoo CEO's Marissa Mayer at the World Economic Forum.

A lot people wanted to hear from Mayer, it was standing room only - with people waiting in line out the door. And the demand for the event's live stream caused the online site to crash.

Mayer was a Google executive when she was tapped to run Yahoo last July. At 37, she not only was the youngest chief executive of a Fortune 500 company - she was also 6 months pregnant.

Last September, she gave birth to a baby boy - two weeks later, she returned to her demanding job.

Erin Burnett asked why the interest in Mayer?
