I have to give credit to D'Amato, he's an old school Republican, the kind that in the past you could work with. And unlike the current incarnation of the GOP, he still has some honor and integrity. Last Friday,.D'Amato unloaded on a wingnut racist on the little-watched Fox Business News channel, calling him out on his "racist bullshit."
The blowup came during a discussion on Thursday's edition of "Money Rocks"about whether or not to privatize the US Postal Service. Though all of the guests appeared to agree about the issue at hand, several took offense at the comments of GOP strategist Jack Burkman.Have a look, the fun begins at 4:58:
Burkman launched the discussion by saying, "most of these guys working in the Post Office should be driving cabs, and I think we should stop importing labor from Nigeria and Ethiopia. That's the skill level."
I just love the way that jackass's jaw drops when D'Amato begins to tear into him. And who's that crazy woman wanting to privatize Homeland Security?? Are you kidding me? At any rate--way to go, Al!
