As the CNN anchor got increasingly fired up about how, contrary to what Rice and Barack Obama have been saying lately, America is actually really enlightened, he accidentally let loose with a rather controversial expression.
"Not a single one of these cotton-pickmwhwhyah —he fumbled, tried to cover it up—these just ridiculous politicians should be the moderator on the issue of race." Right, Lou. Because you're doing a fine job. Clip above!
