So I just mashed, sparged, and drained about 6.5 gallons of hot wort (or is it extract?) into my bottling bucket. I plan to brew it tonight. Will it be ok sitting in the bucket for a few hours? I'm just worried about the temp. It's probably 150-160 degrees. Will it be ok?

It's called wort now. And I think you should be fine. Anything that might try to colonize it is going to be killed by your hour of boiling.

Why didn't you drain it into a kettle? I've never had wort or beer that temperature in a bucket. I'm not sure, but I think it will be okay.

I guess if you were worried, just put it in your brew kettle.

People mash in plastic coolers so I don't see a problem.

Haha, nice point. I didn't drain into my bk cause I had all my sparge water in it. So I needed to drain it somewhere...
