Dan Rather Jumps The Shark

What can one say about Dan Rather’s pathetic attempts to flog his discredited story by hauling out an 86-year old with advanced BDS to testify that the documents are fakes, but the Bushitler was still AWOL, etc. Rather’s excuses are becoming lamer than FDR’s legs. (What? Too soon?)

Allah has all the links you could want on this story, including info that ties the documents to an Abilene, TX Kinkos store. While Dan Rather continues to play journalist while giving John Kerry sloppy wet rimjobs, the blogosphere is all over this story like John Edwards on a 10-car pileup. So far it’s been the bloggers who have done the legwork on this story, with members of the mainstream media not far behind. We pajamahadeeen are not going to let this thing go, no matter how much Dan Rather continues on his quest to bring down the Bush Administration.

This increasingly asinine affair reminds me of a line from that fountain of popular wisdom, The Simpsons:

The following tale of alien encounters is true. And by true, I mean false. It’s all lies. But they’re entertaining lies. And in the end, isn’t that the real truth? The answer is: No.

Someone should tell that to Dan Rather.

UPDATE: Well, at the very least Kevin Drum shows that he’s not a Kool-Aid drinker. Of course, many of his commenters are standing in line for seconds, but that’s to be expected…

UPDATE: Heh. Great minds think alike
