TLP: And You Thought He Was Crazy When He Tried To Launch Space.com
When last we heard, Lou Dobbs was considering a run for the U.S. Senate. Seems a little time off the air leads to increasingly grandiose projecting. The former CNN anchor apparently is now thinking bigger.
The Huffington Post cribs an interminable GQ profile that you probably don't want to read anyway:
Lou Dobbs is considering a run for President, he told GQ's Jeanne Marie Laskas.Well, I guess that's one vote. Or a leaner anyway. So, who's the Dobbs base? Angry white men? A little played out by now. The anti-immigration contingent? That splits the vote with the Tea Party. People fed up with cable news? Maybe now we're getting somewhere.
Laskas, who spent several days with Dobbs and found herself acting in various capacities — "wife...mother, campaign manager, shrink, cohort, brat" — got Dobbs to say he is considering a run and that his wife is growing more and more OK with the idea.
"I never said I'm running for president," Dobbs said, adding that he never said he isn't either. "I'm not ruling anything out. I don't know what I'm going to do."
"You're considering it," Laskas said.
"I am," he said, adding that his wife Debi is "probably more open to considering it than she's ever been."
