Lou Dobbs: Everyone and everything sucks.

    I've watched Dobbs here and there since his return to CNN and was surprised when he started ripping the Bush Administration, CEOs, companies that hire illegals, and mostly government.

    So Obama comes in and he's now ripping the Obama Administration, Wall Street, unions, Democrats in Congress...

    He can criticize whomever he chooses, but I wonder what or whom he actually thinks is working well in America.

    You know, he's probably right.

    I know I suck.

    He praises political bravery. You may interpret that as you wish.

    My ass. He praises cranky old white men like him.

    Lou Dobbs sucks.

    Lou Dobbs has a borderline psychotic hatred of Mexicans. He criticized the Bush Administration largely because Bush proposed an immigration policy that fell short of "kill them all and drop their bodies over the massive, heavily armed border wall."

    It's pretty alarming to see a story on Dobbs' show if you're actually familiar with the issue being discussed. It will be distorted to the point that you no longer recognize it.

    Lou Dobbs does suck. And immigration has lost some of its heat lately. I'm a little surprised CNN keeps him around. His demographic is not exactly their demographic.

    It may be because Dobbs is waiting for "change we can believe in."
    Perhaps, we should add Dobbs to the Fairness Doctrine's list of blacklisted members. McCarthy is rolling over in his grave.

    While we're at it, let's blacklist Reuters because it just published a negative article about Guatemala's problem with Mexico.

    I don't mind his show, but I do wonder how awkward it must be for actual CNN journos to appear on his show and have to smile and be deferential when he goes off on one of his, "what they hell are they thinking?" jags. I do enjoy his show, it typically covers stuff you don't find elsewhere and his team of reporters are pretty good, but man give him the ratty old sweater already.

    I'm oooooold! And I'm not happy! And I don't like things now compared to the way they used to be. All this progress -- phooey! In my day, we didn't have these cash machines that would give you money when you needed it. There was only one bank in each state -- it was open only one hour a year. And you'd get in line, seventeen miles long, and the line became an angry mob of people -- fornicators and thieves, mutant children and circus freaks -- and you waited for years and by the time you got to the teller, you were senile and arthritic and you couldn't remember your own name. You were born, got in line, and ya died! And that's the way it was and we liked it!

    Life was simpler then. There wasn't all this concern about hy-giene! It my days, we didn't have Kleenex. When you turned seventeen, you were given the family handkerchief. ... It hadn't been washed in generations and it stood on its own ... filled with diseases and swarmin' with flies. ... If you tried to blow your nose, you'd get an infection and your head would swell up and turn green and children would burst into tears at the sight o' ya! And that's the way it was and we liked it!

    Life was a carnival! We entertained ourselves! We didn't need moooovin' pitchurrrres. In my day, there was only one show in town -- it was called "Stare at the sun!" ... That's right! You'd sit in the middle of an open field and stare up at the sun till your eyeballs burst into flames! And you thought, "Oh, no! Maybe I shouldn't've stared directly into the burning sun with my eyes wide open." But it was too late! Your head was on fire and people were roastin' chickens over it. ... And that's the way it was and we liked it!

    Progress?! Flobble-de-flee! In my day, when we were angry and frustrated, we just said, "Flobble-de-flee!" 'cause we were idiots and we didn't know what else to say! Just a bunch o' illiterate Cro-Magnons, blowin' on crusty handkerchiefs, waitin' in lines for our head to burst into flame and that's the way it was and we liked it!
