I admire a man with a strong command of invective. And Lou Dobbs falls right in that catagory.
The CNN talk show host who crusades against illegal immigration aimed his firepower at San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom in the wake of a searing report on the city's illegal sanctuary city policy that resulted in Honduran juvenile crack dealers escaping from custody.
According to San Francisco Chronicle reporters Phil Matier and Andrew Ross, "Dobs sarcastically referred to the Mayor as both a 'little darling and 'precious darling."
But wait! It gets better! Dobbs also said that Newsom's initial attempts to dodge responsibility for the juvenile crack dealers being shipped home rather than turned over to federal immigration authorities makes him look like a "complete and utter political twit."
But wait! There's more! Matier and Ross report that Dobbs said on his show Monday that Newsom "owes the folks of San Francisco, and all of us, an apology for his immaturity, his irresponsibility andfor just being such a precious fraud."
And Newsom's response, according to the Chronicle? "He's a man of remarkable ignorance."
Well done Gavin. That sure showed Dobbs, huh?
And to think that Newsom has aspirations to become the next Governor of this state. I am sure the state voters will be swayed by his excellent judgement on such issues as providing sanctuary for crack cocaine dealers, breaking the law on gay marriage, and of course his well-known photogenic qualities.
