There's a phrase in American pop culture - "jump the shark" that seems appropriate about now. I guess in the facing rapidly declining ratings, Mr. Dobbs is resorting to even more extreme rhetoric and has now joined the "birthers" desperately peddling one of the sillier conspiracy theories out there. While it showed weak moral stamina, I could at least understand the economic reasoning behind CNN keeping Dobbs on the air when his show was producing healthy ratings. But even that justification for leaving him in prime time has evaporated. It's time to pull the plug. Hat tip to George C....
