Bob “Swear Jar” Beckel just can’t seem to control himself. To his credit, he didn’t drop any F-bombs live on air today, but he did manage to work the term “gang bang” into a segment on a proposed nudity ban in San Francisco. Do you think anyone noticed?

After a commercial break, Beckel himself seemed surprised to be given the closing word, saying he suspected he was in “time-out.” Will anything Beckel says ever earn him a serious time-out? Perhaps a later time slot? The Ed McMahon role on Bill Maher’s HBO show?

No! One Joe Biden is plenty, thanks.

    Geez, if I sat between Kimberly Guilfoyle and Dana Perino I’d be like Raj on “The Big Bang Theory” and be unable to say anything.

      I can understand his thoughts exactly when having to sit between them two women. They are both beautiful. I mean look at other news channels where they have like Rachel Maddow, or the likes and you have your picture for birth control.

      I don’t think beautiful women have any effect on Bob. However, Chris Hayes or Toure might be another story.

    I assume bob plays the role of bafoon on The Five.

    “who’s Bob Beckel?” ROFL. Maybe his viewing audience has shrunk and he’s trying to get people to watch him again.

    Beckel is a bumbling fool. I think all those years of crack, booze, coke, prostitutes and Twinkies have left him with some serious brain damage. He needs to go.

  • vino veritas

    I was watching this exchange at the end of The Five today (really only tune in every now and then to see Andrea Tantaros, Kimberly Guilfoyle and Greg Gutfield) and the look on Dana Perino’s face as soon as the word left his bloated, pompous, spittle-ridden mouth was just priceless! Of course, they were all laughing while clown blobby beckel grew red then stammered and bloviated about the innocuousness of it. Seems more like projection on beckel’s part. I guess these kind of stunts must really bring in the ratings, huh Fox?

  • WisconsinPatriot

    Can Beckel become any less relevant? I am not sure that it is possible.

    Okay, okay… yes, it was in very poor taste. While few may be interested in my thoughts on this, here goes anyway: It seems a matter of the “filter” that sometimes gets clogged as people get older, some people. Back in the 1970’s, my Dad spoke at a retirement dinner for a large aeronautical company. He was a sweet, kind, generous and funny man. But when referring to the unusually large amount of retirees, he used the word “gang bang”. It got a huge laugh, but only from the men. My mother wanted to melt into her chair. Sure, what he said was in bad taste and would have been sad if he’d been remembered for just that. But he wasn’t.

    But in this social media world, everything gets so magnified and scrutinized to the point that people get judged with negative speculations abounding. Maybe I’m just more inclined to give Beckel a pass on this one because I can have a real potty mouth at times. If you don’t like Beckel, don’t watch him, but jeez, the guy made a mistake. I may not agree with his politics, but I suspect he’d be a hoot to hang out with.

      The difference is the only ones who heard your dad’s “gaffe” we’re the people in the room. You (and perhaps a few others) may have heard about it second hand, but that’s it.

      Beckel knows he’s speaking on a live public forum. He’s a professional and knows better and should be able to control himself more than he does (of course no one’s perfect). If he can’t he’s in the wrong business.

      ps: I bet your dad was really sweet.

      • Yomama

        I know, you’re right. He really should have more control. I love watching the Five, and Beckel used to kind of get me p.o.’d at times, then he would say something that would redeem him in my eyes. Truth be told, I have a hard time staying mad at him because I have a very similar history (minus the prostitutes), but as time goes on I find myself often yelling at the TV for Beckel to just stop talking. Imagine if it were Alan Colmes on there instead, I would definitely stop watching the Five! The only liberal on Fox that I believe has some honesty is Kirsten Powers. Oh well, I’ll be curious to see how his apology goes tonight. :)

    I disliked Beckel when he used to be a regular on Hannity. Then kind of liked him at first on The Five. Since then I have watched him do a lame impression of Alan Colmes as he pivoted every important issue toward something unrelated and disingenuous against any conservative point under discussion. Now he just brags about drugs, election fraud and burps out the occasional vulgarity. A true Liberal. He holds conservatives in the lowest regard and expresses that opinion in the lowest terms.

    He can’t stay something he’s never been.

    It’s like listening to a six-year old who doesn’t want to sit at the grown-ups table. You’d swear Kimberly was dressing down her own kid sometimes. God, he is embarrassing.

    Why is this man still employed? He’s nothing more than comic relief.

    I do not watch Fox anymore, if I wanted to listen to a bunch of lefty lies, I would tune into any of the other DNC media.

    Bob always looks drugged out on The Five. Then he has brief moments of lucidity where his true self shines through with what one can only describe as turrettes.

  • Jeffrey Olah

    stop being prudes…I disagree with Beckel 99% of the time but give me a break on this one

  • TWG2A

    He must have gotten that idea from this vile sign carried by an obama snuggler spotted at a TEA Party event in ’09

  • TWG2A

    Beckel is the only reason I won’t watch the five. Too bad, cause I LOVE Gutfield! Guess I’ll just stick with RedEye

  • BeeKaaay

    The Leftocrat party is run by gangs of thugs, so gang-banging is their thing.
