Lou Dobbs Schooled In New Republican 'Messaging'

[h/t Media Matters]

I give Jennifer Korn credit for trying to dance around Lou Dobbs' intractable bias when it comes to how he refers to undocumented workers. Korn appeared on Dobbs' show Friday to explain why the Hispanic Leadership Network is trying to get Republicans to tone down their use of the term "illegals" when referring to undocumented workers.

In what could possibly be the most hilarious moment in the interview, Dobbs confronts Korn about her assertion that the term is 'tossed around' as an ad hominem attack on Hispanics without regard to why they aren't documented and are in this country.

DOBBS: Who are these fools using the term "illegals" in ways you think they just throw it around?

Gosh, Lou, I don't know. Maybe it was that guy letting go with a not-that-long-ago rant against the DREAM Act. Or maybe it was that guy who spent years hatemongering on CNN? Then again, perhaps it was the guy who used the term "illegals" all the time and acted like some high-and-mighty patriot while hiring undocumented immigrants to work for him?

In my best Dana Carvey Church Lady voice...Who could it be, who could it be? Could it be...SATAN? Or maybe just Lou Dobbs.
