Does Emma Lazarus's Statue of Liberty Poem Still Hold True?

The Dom Giordano Program
Wednesday, August 14th
Dom started today's show by discussing comments made on Erin Burnett’s CNN program in which Ken Cuccinelli defended his altering of the famous Emma Lazarus poem that adorns the statue of liberty, which states ‘give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore; send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I life my lamp beside the golden door!’ Cuccinelli, when asked about the poem on NPR, stated that those words are etched in the American pathos, but also said it should be added that the tired and poor should be those who are able to ‘stand on their own two feet’ and ‘not become a public charge.’ Burnett and Cuccinelli got in an argument, and the left has now picked up statements made in the CNN interview in which Cuccinelli references the immigration of Europeans in a positive light. Dom dissects that mess, and also discusses Sean Hannity’s defense of Cuomo taking offense to being called ‘Fredo.’ And because Cuomo has been so prominently featured in the news recently, Dom asked listeners to call or tweet in their ‘most annoying political pundit on TV.’ To wrap things up, Dom and Dan give their top 10 most annoying pundits, and discuss a couple who they left out and tell why.
