Bo Dietl says Katie Couric looks ‘Oriental’

Fox commentator Bo Dietl goes all-out on Don Imus’ show the other day, even pulling his eyes back to make the point that Katie Couric looks “Oriental.”

Here’s what he said:

She looks like a Halloween cartoon. She’s got her eyes pulled so far, she’s starting to look Chinese herself. Enough with these face lifts, alright Kate. And enough with the young guys Katie. You’re over the top baby. You’re over 50. Start going out with guys your own age. This cougar stuff don’t work.

After Imus makes a half-hearted attempt to defend Couric and change the subject, Dietl goes on to say:

Ten years ago, she looked American. Today she is an Oriental.

I don’t know what Dietl has against Couric, but really? To use an entire ethnic group as an insult?

Of course, there’re announcers calling NBA star Jianlian Yi Chinaman, so it’s clear that sportscasters pay absolutely no mind to what is deemed racially offensive by those funny-looking Orientals — or, er, Asian Americans.

The “it’s OK to make fun of Asians” file is getting so full, we’ll have to create a subcategory: File this one under “it’s OK to use Asians to make fun of people.”
