Vox Boobous Populi

The syndicated Lou Dobbs radio show hit the air this week.

Great...more of the same uninteresting, pandering faux-populist crap (if this guy is "independent," then I'm a Saudi oil sheik). Just what we need - another snooze-inducing drone to displace a few more local hosts.

It's not about politics; it's about the ability to entertain. Sure Dobbs is good at getting a rise out of people; that, however is a cheap quality. It's how well you maintain after the shock wears off that tells the story (as others have learned the hard way).

By the way, ya gotta love the fact that Dobbs's San Diego affiliate is a station in Tijuana...
