TLP: And You Thought He Was Crazy When He Tried To Launch

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.

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."
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.

The Lazy Paperboy

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

O/T but from the dept of crazy denials: GS says they were doing God's work...

"Our short positions were not a 'bet against our clients,'" Goldman said in the letter. "Rather, they served to offset our long positions. Our goal was, and is, to be in a position to make markets for our clients while managing our risk within prescribed limits."

I'd vote for Lou Dobbs over either of the clowns the two major parties are likely to nominate.


Don't you think Lou will go for the GOP nomination? With Kudlow as running mate to make it a Lou & Larry ticket with a platform of cuff links, pocket squares and condescension.
