He’d “Rather” Not Stay

Hey Dan: enjoy your correspondent status.
I think we need to throw a staff party on Dan Rather’s last night, an as-yet undetermined date in March. Any resignation of a major anchor should be accompanied by drinking.

“He made no mention of the National Guard story in announcing the change, saying he had agreed with CBS executives last summer that after the November 2 election would be the right time to leave.”

Liz Trotta, former New York bureau chief of The Washington Times has said of Dan: “He’s a complete and total psychopath. I don’t mean that in the criminal sense, of course, but in a professional sense. People like that will do anything to hold on to their jobs.”

Aint it the truth. But now would be a good time to leave. Exit Dan Rather, stage right!

    Busey is a good pick, but only if he gets to bring the annoying little guy from “I’m With Busey” along.

    I miss that show. I think it was one of the stranger things I’ve ever seen on telelvision.

    I mean, ’05. Man, how many times can you fuck up in one blog reply. Stay tuned for more idiocy on my part.

  4. Casey says:

    My nomination: Gary Busey, if he is still alive come March ’06.

    I’m suspicious of everything. So it doesn’t really matter to me. The important thing to keep in mind is that his resignation supposedly has nothing to do with the recent debacle, although the fingers are pointing. Kudos to him for admitting he was wrong…eventually… and sucking it up to apologize on the air.

    I am curious to see who’ll take his place. The article says they don’t have a sucessor yet. Anyone have a nomination?

  6. Casey says:

    That’s what I was thinking, but not typing. Sorry for my stupidity.

  7. JS says:

    The Washington TIMES (not the Washington POST) is owned by Moon. The breathless quote about rather came from someone at the Moonie-owned Times.

  8. Casey says:

    I would be suspicious of anything that someone from the Washington Post says. Moonie’s are fucking crazy!
