    NEIL CAVUTO, ANCHOR : You know, I get the same reaction when I walk the Upper West Side here in New York, but enough about me.

    That went pretty well, Democratic Congressman Bob Etheridge just apologizing for that incident, but, so far, nobody calling for him to step down, nobody calling him radical. But Tea Partiers complain about spending, and they are labeled a crazy, angry mob, or worse.

    Reaction now from Republican California congressional candidate Star Parker. We have invited her opponent, Laura Richardson, on to the show, to little avail.

    Star, I can appreciate the dilemma, and the pickle the congressman is in. There are just better ways of handling it. And I think of the way Tea Partiers are described when they get even remotely agitated. Very different.

    STAR PARKER R-CALIF. CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE: It is very different. And you're talking about a sitting congressman. We should be respectful for anyone that we would meet.

    But, that said, there's a lot of tension on the air — in the air. The government is totally out of control, and the American people are concerned.

    CAVUTO: Yes, but you know what's weird about this case? I know the congressman later took to the air today to apologize for this incident.

    People will look at that and maybe with a forgiving eye. And maybe they should. I don't know. But then I just say be consistent and apply the same to Tea Partiers, who don't get nearly so physical. On that, we don't see...

    PARKER: Well, that's exactly. You're absolutely right.

    In fact, the hostility from the left is far more abusive than anything that we would see from the right. Now, that said, I can appreciate that, as a sitting congressman, he may be alarmed that someone would come in his face with a camera.

    But there are better ways to handle these things. The Tea Partiers, on the other hand, were exercising their constitutional right to protest. When you start having a government who decides that they're going to bypass the — the conversation from the American people that say they do not want something, there was some tension there.
