Wow. Upon hearing the fiery Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) urge bankers to be taxed and call Republicans "demons," Fox's Eric Bolling had some choice words for what to him is just another uppity black woman high on something. It's unbelievable these guys are on the air. Hopefuly, not for long. But jeez: there is, in fact, a black guy in the White House. With time comes change, always: Get over it. Some of his earlier "work" here, along with more from others of his ilk.

"What is going on in California? How's this? Congresswoman, you saw what happened to Whitney Houston. Step away from the crack pipe. Step away from the Xanax. Step away from the Lorazepam. Because it's going to get you in trouble. How else do you explain those kinds of comments?"
