Lou Dobbs, for one, is outraged. Lou Dobbs isn't gonna take this sitting down. Lou Dobbs is going to stand up for all Americans and demand what's his!
That's what the host of the LA radio show Pocho's Hour of Power thinks would best fit the notoriously anti-immigration CNN host's firmly pursed lips. Last week, Pocho launched a campaign offering $500 worth of baby items to the first illegal immigrant that named their child "Lou Dobbs."
"What could be more patriotic," he asked, "than naming [a] baby after a beloved American bigot?"
So far, nobody has proffered a baby pundit to walk away with the prize, which is, honestly, rather meager for the lifetime of mockery it would ensure. But the idea itself is rather brilliant.
For a while now, Dobbs has been slowly morphing from a regular business broadcaster into a single-issue nut-job of the sort that usually harasses captive audiences with impromptu speeches about the merits of the flat tax or the secret machinations of the Illuminati to control us all through fluoridated water.
Too bad. Perhaps when Big Lou gets a chance to sit down with illegal Baby Lou, his American heart will melt. Si, se puede!
