Bob Beckel was on the Sean Hannity panel last night providing the kind of insight on how to win a presidential election that only a former campaign manager for Walter Mondale can offer, when Beckel didn’t realize they’d returned from a break and were live on the air. Profanity ensued.

Mediaite sets up the clip:

Bob Beckel didn’t realize when the commercial break ended during tonight’s final segment of Hannity, caught in a heated off-camera argument with fellow panelist Jennifer Stefano. Off-air debates, we thus learned, are granted a much more colorful range of vocabulary than on-air debates, and as the cameras started rolling, the first words on national television were, “You don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about.”

Following that, Beckel’s liberal instincts almost immediately took over as he then tried to blame somebody else for his fit of Sudden Onset Tourette Syndrome — in this case Sean Hannity. By now Beckel’s probably blaming Bush.

Imagine if you will what kind of outrage we’d be hearing from the libs if this were a conservative male taking such a hostile tone toward a liberal female. It would be the left’s “People’s Exhibit A” proof of the Republican “war on women”:

    What we need is a "civility clock" It could either be a clock that shows how many months, weeks, days, hours it has been without Obama giving the $1 million back to Mahr or it could be a clock that counts how long it has been since the last time a democrat with a microphone has said something uncivil towards or about a Conservative (and then reset to 0 everytime a Dem does say something).

    the first words on national television were, “You don’t know what the **** you’re talking about.” -Bob Beckel, experienced expert on such matters

    There will be some that say, "Get Bob off the air."

    To that, I say, "have him on more, and don't take commercial interruptions."

    Frustration is the way to get under their skin, and once you're there, you own them.

    Do not take Beckel off the air…he shows the true liberal bent that has been hidden in plain site for many decades…Bob, keep those comments coming !!!!!

    I thought Beckel was semi intelligent. Now I realize that all libs are the same. He is just offal

    The woman should have popped him one right in his pie hole.

    One of the things that is at least as aggravating as hearing people speak that way on national television is the fact that each of the other panelists at some point try to console him when, to him, the reality finally set in.

    He finally realizes what happened, goes quiet, senses some grief of what just happened and the others feel a need to alleviate that grief and give him the, “Oh, there, there now, it’s not as bad as all that.”

    Good ol` Bob, never fails to disappoint !

    So, was that Fair or Balanced ?

    My thoughts as well. Beckel once reluctantly recounted his years of alcoholism in front of Sean, and the nation. And I'm FINE with that! Good for you Bob, you were in the gutter personally and climbed your way back out.

    Then THIS rears its ugly head! All those years of sobriety and clean living down the tubes eh?

    The way I've always taken that kind of language in front of or directed at a woman in the work place is that it's almost always followed up by "Oh c'mon… YOU'VE heard/ [used?] that talk before!?"

    Just dripping w/ misogyny. If the gal doesn't put her foot down about it, the outbursts only intensify.

    In addition to that, we need a "Bush Gremlin", which, in this case, can be seen pushing the "on-air" button, 5 seconds ahead of time, with the intent.

    Then, whenever they say any form of "It's Bush's fault", enterprising people can create a split-screen with the Bush Gremlin manipulating whatever was "his fault" and at the end, the classic Bush "heh heh heh".

    Mockery is a great tool to use on these people. ;)

    I agree with you wholeheartedly. Who is the bigger fool? The fool, or the one that justifies the fool?

    To me, Sean was not helping the situation. He (and Boortz) should have said, "That's no way to speak around a lady. I don't care what she said or did, that's on her. What you said is all on you."

    "I'll apologize for you." – feh

    So Bob stepped in it again. Wasn't the first time. Will it be the last?

    I'm guessing the first thing he did after that segment was to call his AA sponsor.
