Every Sunday night I have a ritual which includes watching 60 Minutes on CBS and tonight I heard Lou Dobbs agree with a former Harvard professor of his who said Idaho is the cultural wasteland.
Dobbs grew up in Rupert, Idaho. Sure, I can understand a comment like that coming from a native of Rupert, but I can't help but think this was a blow below the belt for Idahoans.
I've never been a fan of Lou Dobbs. His view on immigration is a far cry from mine and he and I have very different opinions on many issues. However, he isn't afraid to come out and say he does not support George W. Bush and he isn't afraid to say publicly what a disaster the War in Iraq is. Despite his good qualities, Dobbs seems to have forgotten the good qualities of Idaho, much less Idahoans.
Bottom line--he's no Cronkite.
