La Puta.Orange-headed founder and fired cable-news host Lou Dobbs was known for one thing during his long last years of anchoring a CNN show even dumber than Rick’s List: Lou Dobbs HATED the Mexicans. Oh man they drove him NUTS! And once CNN management decided Lou Dobbs was too awful even for CNN, Lou Dobbs decided that Evil Ghost Mexicans were attacking his house, with weaponry, and also he fantasized about being president or New Jersey’s anti-Mexican commissioner. What could possibly bring this swollen-faced grumblepuss back to the pages of Wonkette? He got caught hiring illegal aliens!

Famous liberal magazine The Nation couldn’t figure out anything good to investigate, so it sent a bunch of reporters to skulk around Lou Dobbs’ mansion in New Jersey. Sure enough, The Nation found many a-Messican toiling for Lord Dobbs, illegally:

In Lou Dobbs’s heyday at CNN, when he commanded more than 800,000 viewers and a reported $6 million a year for “his fearless reporting and commentary,” in the words of former CNN president Jonathan Klein, the host became notorious for his angry rants against “illegal aliens.” But Dobbs reserved a special venom for the employers who hire them, railing against “the employer who is so shamelessly exploiting the illegal alien and so shamelessly flouting US law” and even proposing, on one April 2006 show, that “illegal employers who hire illegal aliens” should face felony charges.


Based on a yearlong investigation, including interviews with five immigrants who worked without papers on his properties, The Nation and the Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute have found that Dobbs has relied for years on undocumented labor for the upkeep of his multimillion-dollar estates and the horses he keeps for his 22-year-old daughter, Hillary, a champion show jumper.

Even worse, Dobbs apparently keeps “five European Warmbloods” on the grounds of his estate. We hope Lord Voldemort doesn’t hear about this! [The Nation]

            I'm imagining making a delicious cauldron of Besh-Barmak from one of those European Warmbloods and sharing it with my Wonkette aul. But, that's just the koumiss talking, I'm afraid.

  • Well duh. You know if he crusaded against homos he'd be gay, so QED.

    • Gunner Asch

      Whoda thunk those little letters "QED" could cause lifelong trauma. When my wife was just starting in math her father would demonstrate some proof or another, always finishing with QED which he insisted meant Quite Easily Done. She finally had some measure of satisfaction when she started into classes he couldn't follow. Even now she grits her teeth and scowls whenever she sees that abbrev. and that's 35 years later.

    Being a Mexican-hating bigot and hiring undocumented housekeepers go together like being a gay-hating bigot and hiring rentboys.

      You're a sick, sick bastard Vitter…

  • deelzebub

    Poor Louie couldn't resist the temptation. On one hand Messicans are disgusting and everything that is wrong with Real America, on the other hand, they are soooo deliciously exploitable.

    • OneDollarJuana

      And they're much more law-abiding and drive much more sanely than Murricans. Also. Too.

    • Redhead

      "on the other hand, they are soooo deliciously exploitable," just like Real Murikans. Or so Beck told me, after he got done putting menthol under his eyes.

      • Lost_Teabaggers

        Haha yes Becks has teamed up with Snowbilly to create exploitation so disturbingly efficient it's horrifying. He rubs the menthol on his eyes to begin crying and she swipes their wallets and drains every dollar while they're distracted. It's sort of like "Paper Moon" only the two main characters are real scumbags.

    The really weird thing is that Lou's wife is Mexican. Talk about hatefucks.

    • Serolf_Divad

      Lou doesn't hate all the Mexicans… just the ones he doesn't want to fuck. If all illegal Messicans were hot Senoritas Dobbs would have zero problem with them.

      • RedneckMuslin

        You make him sound rational.

    This is how awful wingnutty U.S of ' Merica is today. This is not only not surprising, it is expected. And don't look for shame or even the slightest amount of embarrassment, neither. Also.

    • Lost_Teabaggers

      Yeah it's become so common that Rachel Maddow has an ongoing feature entitled "They Not Embarrassed" about the always bountiful and overwhelming conservative hypocrisy. I think Newt pretty much explained it all when he told his ex that "It doesn't matter what I do, people need to hear what I have to say" followed by "I'mma get paid and has me sum buttsecks tonight!"

  • Get Christine Baranski on the phone.

  • Rambone

    So you're saying someone in the media said something just to improve their ratings and make scads of money???

  • Eve8Apples

    Maybe fellow fired CNNer Rick Sanchez can be Lou's pool boy.

    • JustPixelz

      Never happen. Sanchez hates bigots. And their comfortable New Jersey lives.

      • OneDollarJuana

        Besides, Sanchez was borned in Cuba=Commie. And you know how those right-wingnuts hates the Commies.

    • Lost_Teabaggers

      Sanchez isn't Messican…old Lou only hires hispanics that absolutely and unequivocably make him a hypocrit….it must turn him on or something.

  • fuhrius

    This is exactly why he said "Brewer has gone too far with SB 1070." Dobbs isn't stupid. He knows how much yanquis charge for child care and horse grooming. When demonizing the non-white for political and monetary gain, at least as far as trying to keep one's estate costs at a minimum, you want the smoke, but definitely not the fire. The fire here being the loss of cheap labor for Fiorina and Dobbs and $12 heads of lettuce.

  • Radiotherapy

    My wife's minivan has a few BB holes in it, should I be freaked out?

    • JMPEsq

      It was probably the illegal Mexican decapitating pirates, so yes.

      • Radiotherapy

        Yeah, where's the follow-up on that?

  • JMPEsq

    There's something about a spoiled rich girl whose daddy gives her multiple horses that she can waste all her time playing around with that makes me hate Dobbs even more now.

  • Serolf_Divad

    I'm sure Dobbs justification will be as lame as the excuses of all the "libertarian" congressmen who gladly take money from the Federal government while ranting that almost all government spending is unconstitutional (I'm talking to you, Ron Paul). He'll be like: "Well, as long as we're letting them in, of course I'm going to hire them. Doesn't mean I have to like it."

    • Lost_Teabaggers

      Yes that about covers it….Ron Paul making that excuse is a bit like Hitler hiring a Jewish accountant and justifying it by the same argument.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Maybe there's some kind of special mulligan he gets because his wife is a brown.

    • nounverb911

      Does that make Hillary Dobbs an anchor baby?

  • V572625694

    Lou's illegals (who will now of course be fired, fired, fired should send their résumés to Meg Whitman, who'll be looking to hire up again after 2 November. I don't think Meg's previous staff of illegals is going to be very welcome there anymore.

    you know, the good thing about the November republican smack-down is there will be oh so much more of this.

    Dobbs and the TP'ers who rant about illegals in the U.S.A. should recognize that they (the illegals) are here because the market has spoken.

  • 7pilesofwisdom

    I had no idea Dobbs was married to Meg Whitman's maid. And go easy on The Nation; they finally stopped interviewing the Undersecretary for Underwear long enough to get out of DC for a story. Bravo!

  • Lost_Teabaggers

    I've found that the only way for me to intellectualize massive conservative hypocrisy and their complete lack of embarassment goes as follows: complete selifish, self centerdness and something a bit….darker. They know their gullable, dimwitted authoritarian followers will always take their side so they can say anything, no matter how opposite they actually live and nothing will happen. And to ammend Huey Long's old saying "A conservative can recover from being caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy so long as they advance the corporate cause" If a conservative even for a moment develops a conscience about the 3rd world nation project, they're gone simple as that; and nothing else matters.

  • awesome_dude

    I first read that as "for the upkeep of his daughter, Hillary, a champion show jumper."

    So of course I google image searched for Hillary Dobbs and was reminded that I am A very flawed little man.

    Every time I hear something about Lou Dobbs, I also hear Jon Stewart's voice in my ear …

    Apparently, working for Lou Dobbs is one of those jobs that real murrikans won't do. I'll be damned.

  • lochnessmonster

    Just like those who are vehemently opposed to gays, the person who railes the most against something are usually guilty of that same crime they are against.

    Poor lil Demorats, seizing on anything you can as your stinking shit continues stinking.

    Meanwhile, a perusal of the home addresses of pro-regressives reveals that they mainly live in lily white neighborhoods, even when they live and work in a majority black city like DC.

    “illegal aliens.”

    So, LET me think…. The "author" saw fit to put the above term in quotes, so does that mean it's some loose cannon denigration of a people, exclusive to Lou? No…. wait a minute… I'm almost certain I've seen that term somewhere prior to having even having heard of Mr. Dobbs. Yet, "tea-baggers" is perfectly acceptable by all the wonk-jobbies.

    What a bunch of dumbkoffs & losers!

  • facts80

    Yes he hates Mexicans so much he married one. His wife is Mexican American. He never said he hated Mexicans he said he hates illegal immigration. I also don't know many people who check the documentation of the companies they do business with. I have never asked for any ones papers at the grocery store or a restaurant.
