Obama is Still the Shit, this Time Dan Rathers can Get It in the Ear


Check this clip where Dan Rathers, anchor of CBS Evening News for 24 years, calls Obama Osama bin Laden.

“With Jesse Jackson…I have a great respect for Jesse Jackson, that he was an important figure in paving the way for an Osama bin Laden to appear. But this is one of those things, I think, by the time we get to the conventions no one’s going to remember it. It doesn’t count for very much.”

Whats worse is that nobody said anything. I don't care how old or how respected Rathers is, he needs to apologize for this. As a senior member of the press he should know better than to make a mistake like that on live television. What hurts me most is that this comment was made on my prefered news station, MSNBC. Damn, I would only expect this from Fox. But as always, Obama is still the shit. He is currently traveling abroad in Afganistan after a breif visit to the Eroupean nations where an estimated 80% prefer him over McCain.
