Political Circus: Comic takes a 'Rock' to the Tea Party

Washington (CNN) - Politics is serious business - but not all the time.

No tea (party) for you!

Funnyman Chris Rock is known for some controversial takes on politics. His latest target is the Tea Party movement. In an interview with Esquire magazine, Rock equates Tea Partiers to kids, who he says always act up the most right before they go to sleep.

"They're going crazy. They're insane," he said. "You want to get rid of them - and the next thing you know, they're f-ing knocked out."

    Chris, it is not nice to make fun of a Koch funded industry, the tea bagger party.

    Chris Rock can take care of himself like all black men should when it is a fair fight. It is called survival and we are prepared for it no matter what and who especially these days with the haters out there because an intelligent black man is in the white house that was built by slaves.

    Chris Rock really believes anyone with a brain, self respect, decency, culture, education is going to listen to what he has to say. Seriously, he should look in the mirror, what he's going to see is a man that acts and thinks that he is still a kid. He should consider getting an education so that he can give a constructive opinion instead of using vulgarity to make his point.

    Hey Rock, Demcorats have been the whining children since forever. Calling us what you are still doesn't work.

    Time to scream your all inclusive argument??
