Dobbs (Surprise!) Has Something to Say

Yesterday’s New York Times piece has put our favorite anchor into Nixon mode to defend himself. No little dog, Checkers, by his side, but the same approach: sincere (the Dobbs smirk gone), self-pitying (under attack by “both the left wing and the right wing”), guilt by association (“scurrilous personal attack...carrying the water of the Southern Poverty Law Center”) and the centerpiece of both the Nixon and Dobbs posture--the heroic defender of the people:

Nixon: “I'm going to continue this fight. I'm going to campaign up and down America until we drive the crooks and the Communists and those that defend them out of Washington.”

Dobbs: “(W)e'll continue to report on the nonpartisan independent reality that is too often overwhelmed by the ideologues in our national media, the left wing and the right wing.”

I’ll make a promise, too: No more posts about Dobbs until there is hard news such as a parallel to Nixon’s impeachment or resignation from office.

Meanwhile, for those with strong stomachs, a link to all previous Dobbsiana here and another to his defense last night, complete with video.
