So, Lou has officially gone ‘loco,’ as Barbara Morrill noted yesterday in her Late afternoon/early evening open thread on the front page of Daily Kos. Morrill needed only quote Dobbs word for word to demonstrate the full depths of his heightened locura:
I don’t know what’s happened to this White House, but the wheels appear to have come completely off here over the last several days. Making a decision to talk about a national initiative on education from the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, which is effectively an organization that is interested in the export of American capital and production to Mexico and Mexico’s export of drugs and illegal aliens to the United States. This is crazy stuff.
The only wheels that have come off here are Dobbs’ own. It’s hard to imagine how he gets off smearing the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, which is made up primarily of small and large American business owners of Hispanic descent, as a down-and-dirty drug cartel.
Dobbs used to be known as “Leprosy Lou” for his wild imagination when it comes to all things immigration, but now he can safely be called “Lou, El Loco.”
Crazy stuff is right.
