It is amazing that after CBS consulted their experts and were solidly warned of the fraudulent nature of the papers, Dan decided to seek other experts who would tell him what his ears were itching to hear. And as most of you know by now, bloggers have just broken the story on Rather?s unnamed sources; one of them is Dan Rather?s imaginary friend ?Crazy Pete? and another is the departed spirit, the star of stage and silent screen, Gloria Swanson.
It is a wild, weird trip to see the Bush hatred hit such an all time high, and the effect it has on the general public and on the haters themselves. The ill-conceived Kerry campaign is imploding at such a rapid rate that the liberals are going Mach 2 as they try to grasp some salacious straw to keep him ? and them -- from sinking. The best they could come up with was that Bush missed a physical.
Is that it? Let me help you here: missing a physical doesn?t come close to Kerry?s Swift Boat fantasies, his highly questionable, totally bloodless Purple Hearts, much less his traitorous testimony before the Fulbright Committee and subsequent meeting with the enemy in Paris.
Then we have Dan busting an O-ring over President Bush getting preferential treatment in the military. Now that?s the putz calling the kettle black now isn?t it? I don?t recall Rather screaming ?injustice? or ?preferential treatment? as Ted Kennedy waltzed away from Chappaquiddick or as Bill Clinton walked away unscathed after multiple rape charges, Whitewater, Monica and lying under oath. And as far as preferential treatment goes, Rather gets it every week by being allowed to broadcast 20 years after he has lost all objectivity.
Geez, I wonder what are they going to accuse President Bush of next? How about:
1. He once drank red wine with fried chicken?
2. He wore white after Labor Day?
3. In 1968, he insisted on swimming after lunch, refusing to wait the full thirty minutes?
4. He has been known to drink milk after the expiration date?
5. He started the Civil War?
6. When he was nine, he missed a dentist appointment?
7. Some say he was present during Christ?s crucifixion?
My ClashPoint is this: I?m cool with dissent and proper partisan bickering by differing camps of political persuasions, but Rather and his crew have moved solidly into the WWE sector. And everyone ? even their ultra-left soulmates at The Washington Post ? is saying, ?I?d Rather ? NOT?. Heck, Satan even released a statement on Friday stating that ?Neither I, Satan, The Prince of Darkness, nor any of my hellish hierarchy, nor my demonic hosts had anything to do with the sophomoric, ham-handed slop job kerried out by Rather and his anti-Republican rabble.?
You know as much as CBS may try to sell us Rather?s blather or Kitty Kelley?s cancerous slander [some say she?s Michael Moore in drag], I see America decisively not queuing up to purchase the Axis of Drivel?s snake oil. In fact, the TV ratings realistically and consistently show that the masses are looking for fair and balanced news, and not the journalistic spam of brainwashed jackasses.
