Ted Turner talked to CNN’s Lou Dobbs on Tuesday night to talk about his new book. Turner had appeared on Letterman the night before and took a shot at Lou Dobbs when he remarked, “You ever watch Lou Dobbs? It’s not funny is it?”

Dobbs asked Turner what he didn’t like about the show. Turner responded, “I don’t like the fact that you are so mean and nasty to the illegal immigrants.”

Turner said he was “mad as hell” about the financial rescue plan passed by Congress and didn’t like the idea of bailing out out the automotive industry. “Let’s put up windmills and solar panels with that money and repair the electricity grid and prepare for the future instead of pouring money in a rat hole that’s associated with the past.”
