Assistant To the Quote of the Day, Jr.
"The president's liberal friends in Hollywood targeting a younger demographic, using animated movies to sell their agenda... Hollywood is once again trying to indoctrinate our children... demonizing the 1% and espousing green energy policies."
-- Lou Dobbs on The Lorax
I pass this along with the knowledge that you didn't see him actually say this since Dobbs was forced to take his act to Fox Business a while back. (FYI: That's a cable TV network.)
I swear, Richard Pryor, Mel Brooks and the entire staff of the Onion brainstorming in a room together couldn't come up with shit like this -- the ominous conspiracy theories that the terrified right is always pulling out of its collective tight ass and trumpeting. They'd toss anything like it in the garbage for fear that it wouldn't be believable enough to make convincing satire.
It's gotta just suck to be insane enough to see threats to liberty in the shadows of every corner, even under your children's bed and in the cartoons they watch.
Interesting side note, though: I figured Dobbs would be really into the Lorax considering that they look so much alike -- fat, orange, loudmouthed and typically surly.
