Dan Rather Is A Melon-Head

Via Washington Examiner:
DAN RATHER: Part of the undertow in the coming election is going to be President Obama’s leadership. And the Republicans will make a case and a lot of independents will buy this argument. “Listen he just hasn’t been, look at the health care bill. It was his number one priority. It took him forever to get it through and he had to compromise it to death.” And a version of, “Listen he’s a nice person, he’s very articulate” this is what’s been used against him, “but he couldn’t sell watermelons if it, you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic.”

Fake, but accurate? As Mark Hemingway suggests at the link above, maybe the watermelon comment is some Texas thing, but "articulate" is one of those buzz words that gets anyone on the right labeled a racist by the PC police. I trust Danny won't have that happen, however. - Greg Pollowitz
