Lou Dobbs No More?

Lou Dobbs has made a stunning, surprising, and much needed announcement on last night's broadcast of his CNN show. He will be leaving the network, stating that his opinions are no longer welcome. That they aren't.

Dobbs is most known for his outspoken rhetoric on Mexicans, often inciting some pretty fierce conversation against immigration. Or as he likes to say, "Illegals". Mr Dobbs was allegedly given a choice from the CEO of the CNN network; tone it down, or hit the road.

I guess he choose the ladder. It's unclear where Dobbs will land next, although I have a suspicion FOX has an opening, right after that psychotic wack job, Glenn Beck.

Step One Has Passed

The Helathcare Reform Act has passed the house, and is now on it's way to a senate vote. Hold your breath. It just made the house, passing by 220 votes. 215 are needed. However you feel about this bill, it's a step in the right direction, and if passed in the senate, will be modified for the better over time.

You can read the entire bill here:

Still, We Saw a Victory

Tuesday's elections results showed us two things. One, that far right conservative wack jobs don't do well on election day. We saw this movie before a few times. Palin, Thompson, and so on. We were able to take NY'S 23rd pretty comfortably without a hitch.

Second, Democrats who gain power MUST, and I repeat, MUST get something accomplished. Corozine had some great ideas, but nothing was ever produced. I think he felt he could coast on blue state pride alone, thus assuming most would favor the Democrat in the voting booth when it came down to the final hour. Not so. He ran a horrible campaign, not to mention the fact that he made the stupidest choice of all when he referred to Christie's weight in a campaign ad.

I don't care what party you're in, this is just a cocky, ignorant, pathetic attempt to win an election, and it turns people off. Grow up. In retrospect, I don't feel so sorry for Corozine, although I am sorry there's now a Republican in power because of Corozine's arrogance.
