"ten years ago, [katie couric] looked american. today, she looks oriental."

Oh, no he didn't. Some general racist and sexist idiocy from Fox News regular Bo Dietl, who appears to have no problem talking out of his ass: Fox News Regular Bo Dietl: "Ten Years Ago, [Katie Couric] Looked American. Today, She Looks Oriental."

Earlier this week, during an appearance on Don Imus' radio show (you can already tell where this is going), Dietl attacked CBS News anchor Katie Couric, making derogatory remarks about her appearance -- specifically, her eyes:
DIETL: 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 fifty. Start going out with guys your own age. This cougar stuff don't work.
If you look closely at the video, he even pulls his eyes back. You know what I'm talking about. After some more idiotic banter, Dietl refuses to let it go, persisting with the derogatory remarks about Couric's eyes:
IMUS: I'm just saying that if she wants - leave Katie Couric alone. She's fine.

DIETL: Oh no no no. You like her eyes the way they look?

IMUS: She looks fine to me.

DIETL: They're getting smaller and smaller.

IMUS: She looks fine.

DIETL: Ten years ago, she looked American. Today she is an oriental.

IMUS: She is a rodent. Leave her alone.

DIETL: She doesn't like you either pal. She never stuck up for you.
Dietl appears to regard himself as some kind of edgy comedian. And this apparently isn't the first time Dietl and Imus have had a racially charged discussion live on the air. The scariest part is, they no doubt have viewers out there who eat this stuff up. Think Progress details it all here. That's racist!
