Talk About Exclusionary!

We remember watching some cable TV documentary about the heyday of Studio 54, in which some forgotten disco star of the 70s recalls how exclusive it was: “I went by there one night, and they wouldn’t let Cher in! I was like, damn…”

We thought of that today when one of the more vociferous of the immigrant-bashing groups announced today that it would no longer support Lou Dobbs because he’s not anti-immigrant enough.

Dobbs created shock waves last week when news broke about his pro-Amnesty comments on Telemundo that appear to be a departure from his prior support for existing immigration laws. ALIPAC circulated the video of the entire Lou Dobbs interview on Telemundo to over 30,000 national supporters.

"Our internal polling shows that over 70% of our supporters are upset with Mr. Dobbs's comments on Telemundo is [sic] support of legalizing illegal aliens. ALIPAC opposes any path to citizenship form of [sic] Amnesty for illegal aliens currently in the US," said Gheen. "Therefore we are dropping our support for Lou Dobbs and suspending the fan sites we have created."

We were like, damn

Even the Draft Lou Dobbs for President site is showing him no love. Maybe he can get back his old job at Space.com.
