We all knew this was coming, didn't we? After Jon Stewart got another shot in on Fox's "dumb guy" Eric Bolling this Wednesday night during his interview with his The Five co-host, Dana Perino, Bolling took the first opportunity he had to fire back.

Bolling loses another round if this is the best he's got.

From our friend Ellen at News Hounds: Jon Stewart Calls Fox’s Bolling ‘The Dumb Guy’ – And Bolling Strikes Back:

Last night, Jon Stewart predictably took some pokes at Fox News during his interview with Fox’s Dana Perino. Apparently, that got under the very thin skin of Perino’s The Five co-host, Eric Bolling. [...]

Today, Bolling returned fire:

BOLLING: The guy is so obsessed with hating Fox News that he spent a lot of the time taking shots at us, especially me. Apparently, I’m living rent-free inside Stewart’s head. Whatever Jonny Boy. Your time would have been better spent talking to Dana about her book. …Had you done your homework, you might have learned something, Dummy.

Afterward, cohost Greg Gutfeld said, “You showed him, Eric.”

This is not the first time Bolling and Stewart have exchanged words. It’s not the first time Bolling has called Stewart “Dummy” or “Jonny Boy,” either.

Yeah, he "showed him" alright.

Can you help us out?
