Lou Ponders The Infernal Nature Of Barack Obama

As you may or may not know Lou Dobbs — journalist, Birther, and cranky old man — resigned from CNN last week for the second time, for reasons that have not been made clear though it is speculated that he wanted more time to devote to his hobbies, like hunting illegal immigrants for sport; a hobby which has single-handedly kept this wonderful nation of ours from being overrun by a merciless tide of humanity intent on taking all the jobs that no one like Lou Dobbs wishes to do. Besides his outdoor hobbies, however, there are whispers that Mr. Dobbs may seek some sort of public office, thereby helping him to protect even more of America than he could alone in a tree stand armed with only his trusty rifle.

With that in mind, Mr. Dobbs has been making the rounds, getting his fleshy face out there and shaking his jowls gravely for the benefit of the public so that they may become more accustomed to his craggy, experienced folds. No appearance thus far typifies the direction that the Lou Dobbs Express will take than this recent interview on Fox News’s The O’Reilly Factor in which the GOP’s favorite amateur pornographer asks the Border Baron — without even the slightest hint of irony — if he thinks that Barack Obama is the devil to which Lou, sounding every bit the glorious statesman he is destined to be, answers that no, Barack Obama is not the devil. He is just a terrible president. And a terrible person. Also, he may eat babies. In fact, he likes the taste of babies so much that he may mandate that every heterosexual couple in America must produce an extra baby which will be harvested by illegal, Mexican laborers for his sole, gastronomic satisfaction.

Or not, I’m just still flabbergasted that this question can be asked in full view of the public with a seriousness usually reserved for matters that are, well, not insane.

    You should really watch this!!! It’s part of a larger interview with Alex Jones, but this one is about Obama…


    The entire interview is worth watching…

    Well it is rather surprising to see such a literal question being asked on public tv. But then again it is Fox news and most of what goes on on that channel will cause me to take a second take. It is channels like fox news that make me not watch tv!

    I’ve seen Bill’s show enough times to know that question was probably in the context of either another segment on his show or a larger discussion. Thing is he’s arrogant enough and his fanbase extreme enough to think that’s a legit question regardless if it was presented as a “joke”. It’s the deadpan delivery that’s a bit scary though.

    Still I have no issue with it. The Left, did the same with Bush. It was a cheap distracting shot then and a cheap distracting shot now. Why? Because it adds nothing to public discourse. It’s noise one has to ignore. O’Reilly is nothing but that, “fair and balanced” noise. We all suffer in the end when we don’t.

    A shame it’s getting louder and louder though…and in the case of the other Fox News darling Glenn Beck..downright insane. Now THAT crazy bastard has even Dobbs and O’Reilly beat in terms of his comments and questions.

    @Lady Lavona…thanks for the links. Really anything associated with Alex Jones is gonna hit along those over the top lines on some level.

    Anyone else feeling like there are no calm voices of reason and sense anymore in mass media?

    Tequila – I have no doubt you are correct in your assumption that it is a call back to a discussion earlier in the show but it is asked in a way that treats it as anything other than a completely nonsensical claim. It is given validity by even being acknowledged at all. He is really asking that question of Lou Dobbs and would willingly engage him in conversation about it if Dobbs were to answer “Yes”.

    Don’t even get me started on Beck. I have watched that man’s descent into madness and, let me tell you, it was not worth it. It was like staring into the sun. The crazy, crazy sun. As far as I’m concerned the only person on that network with a shred of professional dignity is Shepard Smith and I can’t even fully trust his credibility to be perfectly honest.

    Ah, Poo Blobs. We keep on flushing, and he just keeps spinning in the bowl.

    Agreed, Ross. Even hearkening back to a time when Bush was being broadly demonized by liberals, I’m pretty sure NO mainstream media pundit ever asked someone “is George Bush the devil?” in the middle of an interview with a straight face, or even with a smirk. (Correct me if I’m wrong. I could very well be.) Similarly, no Congressman ever saw fit to yell “YOU LIE” at Bush during an address to Congress.

    Strangely, I’m pretty sure that if Satan exists and has his own television network, it’s got to be Fox News. Beck and O’Reilly are his little minions, keeping the infernal fires stoked with their racist and homophobic remarks.

    T, I actually think Rachel Maddow’s generally pretty reasonable and calm, albeit with a strong liberal bias. I much prefer her decidedly less shouty, pragmatic approach to the likes of Olbermann or Moore.

  6. Mer Says:

    (I, obviously, am neither reasonable nor calm about the likes of Poo Blobs, or any of the other far-right cronies. But then, I’m not in a position where I have to be. Thank goodness. ‘Cos nothing calms me down like referring to neocons by fecal nicknames.)

  7. cappy Says:

    It’s a stupid question, anyway.

    Everyone knows that Dick Cheney is the devil.

  8. R. Says:

    I’m not surprised it was asked. It seems that more extreme conservative (because like liberals there are varying degrees of conservative and not all of them are crazy immigrant hating ninnies) white people feel they can say whatever hateful thing that comes into their teeny little brains.

    Plus it’s O’Riley. If it was something nice then I’d be shocked. Another reason why Fox News and CNN stays turned off in my house. Mainstream media makes me want to rage hard and loud.

    Since leaving the States at age 20 to live in Europe, I’ve become crushingly disenchanted with the whole American political scene. Bill O’Reilly has managed to replace several of my family members with immigrant-hating and Obama-bashing Body Snatcher doubles (which can be rather upsetting when I attend Stateside family occasions).

    Can we afford not to be anxious about interviews like this one? And at what moment did American politics take a decisive turn toward madness?
