Video: Mike Rosen says David Sirota's spin on "motherf*cker" bomb makes him a liar

What's Sirota's take this time around? Via e-mail, he doesn't show any remorse. "It was all in good fun and came at the end of an interchange accentuating a point about how he so loyally carries water for his Republican Party friends that he has no criticism of the GOP on the very same faults they share with Democrats," he writes. "Essentially, Mike was repeatedly struggling for words to answer a pretty simple question (after six tries, he never bothered to answer). It was pretty hilarious, actually -- the kind of thing that makes that kind of event so entertaining, and why a live event is so unique. We get to converse in ways we aren't necessarily allowed to on air."

KHOW/KKZN program director Dan Mandis doesn't seem especially upset about the episode, either. "It's a very adult atmosphere," he says of the event. "It's a very energetic kind of a crowd, and sometimes these things happen.

"Some people thought it was a great moment in the sense that it was exciting," he allows. "It was funny, it was one of those moments -- like a whoa moment. Obviously, there's going to be some people who didn't like the comment, and other people thought it was fine. Everybody's got an opinion, but it certainly got people talking."

We've got a message in to Mike Rosen about this topic. When and if he gets back to us, we'll update this post. In the meantime, here's the video. Again, the conversation starts to heat up at about an hour and twenty-five minutes in. That's followed by a bonus clip: Olbermann declaring Rosen the worst person in the world.

Rosen, as demonstrated in previous encounters of this type, is ill-equipped when lacking a microphone and 5-second delay which enables him to browbeat his callers into submission on his regular turf @ KOA. He's no match for Sirota, who's intellectually superior, even though I don't agree with him all the time.

Once again, Mike Rosen brilliantly exposes Left Wing Extremists like Sirota as the petulant, children that they are.  Rosen's wisdom and intelligence on the issues reduces Sirota to the juvenile, emotionally unstable, profanity laden idiot that he is.  IF MFer is the best that Sirota can do once he is clearly emotionally compromised, then that is just sad.  The listeners of KHOW deserve better than a lefty hack with a limited vocabulary. Be a man Sirota & apologize for acting like a child.

Pretty ironic. Rosen is always the one who rails against "political correctness," defends insensitive speech as "freedom of expression" and declares that no one has the right not to be offended. And yet here he is, with his pachyderm panties in a wad, whining about being offended by politically incorrect speech being aimed at him. As is typical of conservatives, Mike has a long history of loving to dish it out but being totally incapable of taking it.

I'm a conservative......Ive never voted democrat......Im a huge boyles fan.....,but Sirota impressed me more than any of them.  That dude just tells it the way he sees it.  I dont know him, but i dont get why he is branded as a leftist.  From what i heard, he is in the middle.

I was wondering how long it would take for Sirota to apologize to Rosen on his show today... he owes hi that. His comments were rude and vulgar and he wouldn't shut up long enough to allow Rosen to answer. April didn't help either, repeatedly trying to move on to a new subject.
