Welcome to Neil Cavuto's Inbox. After his light pushback on Michele Bachmann earlier this week, viewers took him out to the hard-right woodshed and held a group spanking.

TPM:

"They go pretty much like this," he said. "'Cavuto, you're a rude ass. If I were Michele Bachmann, I'd have a law against you.' Someone else said, 'Who do you think you are? [Bill] O'Reilly? You're an idiot. Quit blabbering, start thinking.'"

Cavuto apologized that the interview "got a little heated," but he maintained that his point was "sound."

Many viewers disagreed and the hate mail kept coming on Thursday.

"Even 24 hours later, a lot of you are more than a little hot and bothered," Cavuto said before offering another sample of the response from viewers.

One emailer said Cavuto was "extremely rude and overboard" in the interview. Another asked, "Off your meds again, huh Cavuto?"

One viewer even suggested that Democrats get preferential treatment on Fox.

"Boy, what an ass Neil was," the viewer wrote. "I will watch for a Dem to get grilled like that but won't hold my breath."

Can't have it both ways, guys! Can't wash the brains and not expect it to stick!
