DescriptionFormer Senator Al D'Amato (R-NY) let loose with a string of profanities as he blasted a fellow Fox Business Network guest for his comments about Africans (h/t J$P).

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.

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."

When it was his turn to speak, D'Amato started by criticizing Burkman, saying, "Jack would've done well without all the name calling."

...

"You are a nasty racist..that's a bunch of bull**** and you should be ashamed of yourself and have your mouth washed out."

When Burkman tried to cut in, D'Amato shot him down: "Wait a minute...shut up. I listened to your racist bull****."
