Is Lou Dobbs Out of His "Cotton-Picking" Mind?

In the below clip watch him regale America about how we don't have a race problem and how we really can talk about race as a society, and then watch him almost call Condi Rice a ... cotton-picker.

I wish I were kidding.

In honor of baseball's opening day yesterday, here are some statistics* to frighten Lou Dobbs.
* In 1965, 90 percent of major league players were born in the United States. Cuba, with 26 players, topped the 11 other places represented.

* In 2006, 72 percent of major league players were born in the United States. The Dominican Republic, with 146 players, topped the 20 other places represented.

I wonder if Lou thinks it'd be a good idea to erect a giant fence around Major League Baseball? Wouldn't Lou say that the likes of Rod Carew (Panama) and Albert the Great (Dominican Republic) stole/steal jobs from American boys?

Lou?

He's a pathetic, sad man. For all the fools on Fox News, I don't think anyone there comes close to Dobbs--even O'Reilly, who shouldn't be on the air for other reasons. CNN should be ashamed.
