Oh, good, has-been blowhard Lou Dobbs will address the next “National Tea Party Unity Convention” in Las Vegas this July. Book your flight now!
(The last Tea Party convention, by the way, was in February. How many conventions are they going to have in one year?)
After a couple of years of boosting ratings for his formerly bland CNN show by spreading foul lies about invading hordes of illegal Mexican immigrants stealing jobs and spreading leprosy, Dobbs was finally fired by the original cable news network because he eventually started being a Birther, for fun. (He was also fired because hosts aren’t allowed to express any opinions, reasonable or batshit, on CNN.)
Since then, he’s been doing a cookie-cutter right-wing talk radio show, and he’s probably written another two or thee books with titles like “AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE” or AMERICA’S RAGIN’ REAL AMERICAN INDEPENDENT” or “AMERICA: THE LOU DOBBS SOLUTION” or something.
Did you read the recent GQ profile of former CNN host Lou Dobbs? It turns out he’s a fascinating character, more rounded and complex than most of his liberal critics think. You know, just like every other right-wing populist propagandist when they’re profiled by a liberal magazine reporter. Sure, he repeats the same old racist cant as Michael Savage on the air to millions of people every day, but over dinner he is shockingly reasonable!
I imagine the Tea Partiers won’t be getting the “reasonable” Lou Dobbs.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
