Dobson Calls it Quits

Focus on the Family’s James Dobson is a gaseous mass of nonsense and bile. That should come as no surprise. But did you also know he’s a quitter? Dude totally gave up on a recent edition of his radio show, saying that the left-wing is just too powerful for conservative protestors to make any difference. He was talking about the ridiculous hate crimes bill that recently passed the House. While I would call it an act of resource hogging, redundant, and thought criminalizing legislation, Dobson calls the bill “utter evil”. A rhetorical difference, maybe. But instead of encouraging his listeners to fight this evil via the God-given weapons of angry phone calls and sub-literate emails, Dobson just threw up his hands and said “fuck it”. Quote: “I've been on the air for 32 years and I've never seen a time quite like this. It just illustrates what happens when we don't have what the Founding Fathers referred to as checks and balances…” Weird. I seem to remember a time not long ago when the GOP had control of both houses of congress and the executive branch. Good thing they didn’t use that power for anything torturously evil. More details here.
