"Courage." Did he really sign off his last broadcast with that notorious Ratherism..."Courage"? Well, we knew that the stubborn old coot would not go gently into that good night without reminding us of some of his greatest hits.
Now Dan Rather, the greatest train wreck of a television journalist ever, is gone. After complaining for so many years, I like most conservatives will probably miss his comically biased reports and shameless spinning for Democrats. How Dan Rather ever got such a prominent job is anyone's guess... it has long been obvious that he lacks the intellectual equipment to understand anything he's talking about, much less complicated historical, economic, or social questions.
The folks over at RatherBiased have a good retrospective of the lowlights of the Danimal's career. Also, don't miss Saint Walter Cronkite's recent thoughts on why Rather should never have gotten Uncle Walter's old job.
So don't let the door hit you on the way out, Mr. Rather. From one amigo to another, I've got just one word for you...Coraje, pal. Now you have all the time in the world to watch tennis tournaments on television.
