LOU DOBBS TONIGHT

Aired June 6, 2006 - 18:00 ET

<snip>RHODES: I would love to tell him.

GIORDANO: I would tell you at one point I would make, though, a lot of conservatives, there's a real split here, that are not religious conservatives. The religious base is getting all geared up, at least the leadership is. This is their moment to exert their power. But a lot of people that are conservatives are not wanting to talk about this, even if they are in synch with these people, they want to get to the real issues.

DOBBS: Randi?

RHODES: There is a huge difference between the parties. The reason why the Democrats come off as being ineffective is because they are a minority. They don't control the rules. They don't control what bills get debated, that's why they are debating gay marriage and all you see is Democrats on -- you know, when the Senate Judiciary Committee secretly went into a closet, which was perfect for half of these closeted Republicans that scream -- how's the Shakespeare -- me thinks thou dost protest too much?

These gay closeted Republicans went into the closet and said we're going to bring back gay marriage because this will get the base out to vote, otherwise they'll stay home. Russ Feingold, a Democrat, stood there and said to Arlen Specter, you aren't even for this, why are you voting this out of the Judiciary Committee? this is crazy. They got into a huge fight and Specter said, started to lecture Feingold and Feingold said I've had enough of your lectures and walked out, tried to take a stand.

We are the minority party. We are all minorities now, because none of us are getting any of our issues heard, because the Republican rabid majority has taken over the agenda.

DOBBS: I get the partisan drift.


RHODES: There's a huge difference between Democrats and Republicans.

MTUME: The thing I will agree with is they don't control these committees.

RHODES: Anything.

(CROSSTALK)

DOBBS: You're on, James.

MTUME: Lou, Lou, take control.

DOBBS: Talk to me.

3. Is that why Randi stopped showing up on Lou Dobbs?
I use to love to see her on the show. She use to say really flattering things about Lou on her show. Then one day she said they (the lou Dobbs show) edited her comments to sound bites that made her sound ridiculous. I must have missed the "bad" show they edited out. Is this the one that Randi objected to?

5. Actually when I seen Dobbs face after Randi said what she did...
...it was obvious she would not be back on the show again. I think Randi knew that too.
