Daily Shows

Night after night, I watch and wait for the one news story that will put him over the edge.

Every night I wait to learn about that one hypocrisy, that one inconsistent and incredibly nonsensical event.

One night he will share that final report about how the government of these United States will cross the line from sheer incompetence to outright stupidity.

I do not trust my VCR.

Therefore, I must be there.

I will be there -- the night when the head of LOU DOBBS explodes.

Lou Dobbs is one of America’s jewels. He is a hero. He has had the audacity to challenge George W. Bush for a number of bone-headed actions. He has vented and voiced his disgust with our Do-Nothing Congress. He rages against the corporate goons that only care about their financials interests while factories close and jobs are shipped to China. He reminds us that our ports are not secure and that the Do-Nothing Congress has shirked their oversight responsibilities by allowing foreign operation of America’s ports and other vital pieces of our infrastructure.

The War on the Middle class continues. Lou Dobbs is on the front line exposing the corruption, the arrogance, the ineptness, and the complicity of big business and our elected leaders to bring this nation to ruin. The hopes and dreams of every American are at risk. Lou stands vigilant as “who knows who” and “who knows what” enters our country through our porous border.

Yes, I watch Lou Dobbs. He brings me the news that really matters.

And, at the end of the day, when I need to put aside my anger and discontentment, I watch The Daily Show and the Colbert Report. I crave Jon Stewart’s fake news and Stephen Colbert’s interpretation of a pompous Bill O’Reilly/Rush Limbaugh windbag. You see, at the end of some days, I need a good laugh to keep from crying.
