Lou Dobbs Thinks He's More Literary Than You

1. Lou Dobbs calls Howard Dean "a bloodsucking leftist" and says: "You gotta put a stake through his heart to stop this guy."

2. Some people object, and rightfully note this is an example of violent, eliminationist language.

3. Dobbs issues the worst apology ever, by calling his critics ignorant fuckwits: "I'm sorry if a Bram Stoker allusion is too literary for some, and for those who could not make what was seemingly an obvious connection, my deepest apologies and I'll gladly withdraw the latter part of my remark."

Dude, the problem isn't a lack of intellect or being poorly read. The problem is that you said the only way to stop Howard Dean is to kill him.
