Former Lou Dobbs supporters protest his new stance on immigration
-Headline of the day-
"Anti-Immigrant Group Pulls Support For Lou Dobbs' Presidential Run."
See, it works this way: Lou Dobbs is thinking maybe he'll run for president. The hitch in this plan is that Latinos hate his guts, because he's an insane anti-Latino guy. So Dobbs went on Telemundo, which is Spanish for "basic cable," and said he loved all the brown people and that he didn't know how this whole "I hate Mexicans" stuff got started. Hell, he even wants a path to citizenship for illegal aliens. Sure, he said this was "amnesty" and the worst thing that anyone ever suggested on his TV show, but he thought it was April Fools day -- pretty much every day.
This was too much for insane racists -- who make up about 95% of Dobb's potential base -- and Americans for Legal Immigration PAC pulled their support for Dobbs before his presidential campaign has even got past the notional stage.
"While Mr. Dobbs claims his positions have not changed, however, that is not the perception of many of our mutual supporters," the group says. "“Lou Dobbs has deeply offended his base of supporters and ALIPAC is going to remain loyal to those Americans who support our existing immigration laws instead of Amnesty disguised as reform."
Writes Greg Sargent, "Xenophobes for a Dobbs Presidency is no more! It’s unclear how his presidential hopes can recover from such a severe blow."
Wonky insider types say this pushes the odds of a Dobbs presidency from one kajillion to one back to one bazillion to one. (Plum Line)

-Who needs to read the story?-
A quote from a post a Wonkette, about what a Dick Sen. David Vitter is; "David Diaperman Vitter is, of course, a repulsive scumbag who pays hookers to change his poopy diapers and then goes to the Senate to screech wingnut inanities. The Politico, on the other hand, is exactly the same thing, but available as a website or handout."
Just a little bit of beauty to brighten up your day. (Wonkette)
