Dan Rather Considers Blogging

Dan Rather is considering many different possibilities to pursue upon his retirement from CBS -- including blogging. According to the NY Times:

Dan Rather also said that in April, in anticipation of what seemed to be his imminent departure from CBS, he had formed a company -- he named it News and Guts, in a nod to what he considers the pillars of his professional life -- through which he plans to create several other journalism ventures, including, perhaps, a blog. (Though he has not yet settled on a title, he says he has ruled out one: "I'd Rather Say This.")
I have a hunch that Wizbang readers can come up with some possible blog titles.

Mac Lorry:

Rather Blogging would be like a Texas red ant trying to weave a silk web.

Rather's character is less suitable to blogging than a Cadillac transmission in a John Deer farm tractor.

Lets see what other "Ratherisms" people can come up with.

I imagine if Rather does start blogging, everyone will clearly see how unintelligent he actually is. I remember when someone decided to give Larry King his own radio talk show. King was so clueless on the air that the show was cancelled about a year later. Larry King is used to tossing softball questions and kissing butt on his TV show but when he needed to actually do some homework and show prep in order to know something about the topics scheduled, he royally screwed up. I imagine whatever blog Dan Rather comes up with will expose his ignorance and arrogance rather well (pun intended).

A bumper sticker I used to see alot during the late 80's and early 90's was "CBS is Rather biased." I guess Rather Biased could work. At least it would be honest.

BTW, Carl,

I remember when someone decided to give Larry King his own radio talk show. King was so clueless on the air that the show was cancelled about a year later.

I agree with your observations about King, but he was national on Mutual Radio Network from 1978 to 1994.

He has to save his failed , incompetant and criminal democrat party by the only way he knows how. POUND THE PERPETUAL FRAUD. Like a couple minutes ago on CNN , Wolf your a POS, liberal media lets dirtbag Dean tell LIE after LIE.

The new plan for the Dimwits is to claim the Republicans have no plan , oh and that they are not smart enough to keep America Safe.LOL.

When are we going to classify these traitors as the enemy?

The world would be a safer place without these assho!es(democrats).With no Media to give the suicide bombers the only thing they want "AIR TIME" and with no traitorous cowards aka (Democrats) putting the finishing touches on the PERPETUAL FRAUD deceiving the Americam public , we wouldn't even have this problem with Osama and friends.

Thank the Democrat Party for keeping the terrorist's hopes alive. How about doing something for your Country and the hell with your personal agenda and your "WANTS" , selfish traitorous basturds!
