You ever notice that the world is actually a little better, a little brighter, now that the tea-baggers are actually embracing the "Going Galt" meme? Alaska is better off now that Palin is gone, Carrie Prejean just makes a fool out of herself when she tries to do it, and now CNN is free from the bitter, twitchy, teeth-gnashing of Lou Dobbs. I'm not sure why conservatives insist on claiming that they are taking a stand for what they believe in, because all they are doing is just quitting.
Veteran CNN anchor Lou Dobbs, whose populist views on the perils of immigration and his repeated questioning of President Barack Obama’s birthplace made him a controversial figure on a network that has traditionally eschewed opinion, announced Wednesday night that he is resigning.
While Dobbs will continue his radio show, he gave no indication of whether he will stay in television—it’s been rumored that he could end up on Fox. Dobbs said on his show “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” that he’s now “considering a number of options and directions,” and that CNN president Jon Klein has released him from his contract, which is not up until 2011. He has been with CNN for 30 years.
Whatever happened to conservatives that had a plan? I mean, even if those plans were even laughably paper-thin - like Karl Rove claiming he was going to spend more time with his family when in reality he just took up new residence inside Roger Ailes' bulbous ass - they at least tried to make it seem like they knew what they were going to do.
And it should be repeated that Ayn Rand's "hero" of Atlas Shrugged left society because he knew that his absence would ultimately lead to the downfall of the economy and various pockets of American society. He "knew" this because of his contribution to the economy and to society. So what precisely do Palin, Prejean, and Dobbs actually contribute that the remainder of America will miss when they leave?
