It wasn't all that long ago that Dan Rather was the king of primetime news, combining liberalism with occasional flights of complete insanity - such as when he tried to take down the Presidency of George Bush using faked documents which Rather and his producer refused to verify.
CBS News dropped Rather...but he re-emerged as a political commentator on something called "HDNet," an alleged (and some say mythical) news service which is only seen on the misty moors of Brigadoon...and even then, only under the light of a full moon.
But it's still way too much exposure. When Dan Rather visited Chris "Tingling Leg" Matthews this past Sunday, he declared that the president's difficulty in achieving healthcare reform boils down to a lack of salesmanship...specifically saying that Obama "couldn't sell watermelons."
There's probably an explanation of this remark that would make it seem non-racist. We just can't think of what the heck it might be.
