The AP’s Larry McShane writes about Lou Dobbs war with New York Governer Elliot Spitzer…
Dobbs’s ire boiled over Tuesday night when he ripped Spitzer as an idiot _ and then offered an on-air mea culpa.
“I’m the idiot,” Dobbs said. “Governor, I apologize for calling you one. Your policies are idiotic. But I have to apologize for calling you an idiot.”
Dobbs shouldn’t hold his breath waiting for a bouquet of roses (the state flower) and a thank-you note from Spitzer.
“Mr. Dobbs has clearly demonstrated that he is not interested in a real debate on New York’s driver’s license policy change,” said Jennifer Givner, a Spitzer spokeswoman. “He has repeatedly refused to offer balanced coverage of the issue.”
