*In the March Issue of Esquire, Chris Rock comes right out and says what some folks are already thing about Tea Partiers: they act like little children who wear themselves out right before bedtime.

“When I see the Tea Party and all this stuff, it actually feels like racism’s almost over. Because this is the last — this is the act up before the sleep. They’re going crazy. They’re insane. You want to get rid of them — and the next thing you know, they’re f—— knocked out,” Rock said.

The comedian/pundit’s wide-ranging interview with Esquire writer Scott Raab, in which the comedian discusses hosting the Oscars, doing stand-up gigs and basketball player LeBron James, is in the March issue. The issue is on newsstands on Tuesday, Feb. 22.
