Appearing on the Fox News Channel talk show “The Five” on Monday night, co-host Bob Beckel tried to insist that he would never stoop so low as RNC Chairman Rince Priebus. Instead, he called the chairman “free pussy.”

For Beckel, the slip, though apparently accidental, could be costly. “I’m going to be fired!” he proclaimed just last April after live cameras caught him telling a female “Hannity” guest, “You don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about!”

Monday night’s slip came as the Fox liberal talker was trying to posture against the RNC chairman’s recent allegation that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is a “dirty liar” for making unsubstantiated allegations about Mitt Romney’s tax returns.

“I think when [President Barack Obama] started out, he was neutral about Mitt Romney, and frankly so was I,” Beckel said. “I thought he was a nice guy. I’ve come to believe he is a terrible — well, I won’t say liar. I wont diminish myself down to where Republicans, or free, free pussy. Fro, free pro. Or, pro-prebus…”

“Let’s move on!” co-host Eric Bolling suddenly injected.

Despite Beckel’s accidental nickname for him, Priebus was on Fox News again by Tuesday morning, insisting that he’s ready to “triple down” on his “dirty liar” insult if Reid does not stop claiming that an unnamed person told him Romney paid no taxes for a decade.

Reid’s allegation, though unsubstantiated, could be easily disproven if Romney released more than two years of tax returns. The former Massachusetts Governor has thus far refused to do so, even though that type of disclosure has traditionally been assumed by presidential candidates.

This video was broadcast by Fox News on Monday, August 6, 2012.
