Carolla's thoughts on local politics emerged in a colloquy with Kevin James, a former radio host and the lone Republican in the mayoral field.
First off, Carolla -- who has also identified as a Republican -- made it clear he has no love for Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, whom he described as a "fucking moron" who "does nothing" and has "a look of a sociopath."
"This man's an incompetent retard and the only reason he's anywhere is because we think he's Mexican or he is Mexican," Carolla opined. "It's the most racist thing in the world. He's running on his race. He's an incompetent idiot... He brings nothing to the table."
Then, Carolla asked James about the mayoral field:
Carolla: Who in that group has a Hispanic surname, and will be voted in solely based on that to fuck up the city for another eight years? ...The podcast was posted on July 29. Three months earlier, on April 17, Carolla cut a $250 check to Eric Garcetti.
James: There's no prominent Hispanic in the race.
Carolla: Oh good, we stand a chance then.
James: You've got Garcetti, Greuel, Perry and myself.
Carolla: Oh. Gil Garcetti.
James: Gil's son.
Carolla: Oh, is it Gil's son?
