What Would You ‘Rather’ Hear?
November 7, 2006 3:02 PM
Tonight former CBS anchor Dan Rather will be a guest on Comedy Central’s “Indecision 2006: Midterm Midtacular” playing straight man to Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.
Rather, who left CBS under a shadow of disgrace last June, promises this go-round there will be no “Ratherisms,” a term coined to describe his legendary colorful remarks, such as, “This race is hotter than a Times Square Rolex.”
The Jon Stewart special airs tonight at 11 p.m. and I’m hoping that the 75-year-old Rather won’t be able to resist his gift of gab. I don’t know about you, but at this stage of the game I don’t want any more gravitas. Aren’t you just sick of that word? I am.
Just give me a jolt of levity during this important midterm beauty pageant which is already turning out to be about just as ugly as a herd of pigs wearing lipstick.
