As Dennis reported on Monday, ex-talking head Lou Dobbs is pondering a run in the 2012 GOP primaries, unless Chewbacca has an edge in the polls. In which case there's always a third party and the U.S. Senate…
Mr. Dobbs, who left [CNN] last week, has said in recent days that he is considering a third-party run for a New Jersey Senate seat in 2012, or possibly for president.
In a little-noticed interview Friday, Mr. Dobbs told Spanish-language network Telemundo he now supports a plan to legalize millions of undocumented workers, a stance he long lambasted as an unfair "amnesty."
"Whatever you have thought of me in the past, I can tell you right now that I am one of your greatest friends and I mean for us to work together," he said in a live interview with Telemundo's Maria Celeste. [...] Mr. Dobbs twice mentioned a possible legalization plan for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., saying at one point that "we need the ability to legalize illegal immigrants under certain conditions."
Hmm. What's the Spanish for "Lou Dobbs is an immigrant's friend"? Let's run this through Google Translate, for those of us who only speak American…
…ah yes, here it is: "Lou Dobbs es un hipócrita patético."
