Lou Dobbs’ Slip

Lou Dobbs was railing against Condoleezza Rice’s contention that America’s inability to talk about race amounted to a “birth defect.”

He challenged the concept, arguing that Americans don’t have a problem talking about race but do fear the “recrimination and distortion” that can come if their comments are misinterpreted.

“We’re living with the issue of race. We’ve got to be able to talk
about it. And I guarantee you this, not a single one of these
cotton…” He pauses … “these ridiculous politicians should be the
moderator on the issue of race.”

He almost said “cotton pickin…,” which surely would have tested his whole thesis.
