fake, but true
I spent about an hour crusing blogs to see what others thought of Dan Rather's performance last night on 60 Minutes II. I believed just maybe I was being too hard-assed because I have known for YEARS that Rather was a lying, butt-boy leftist who has twisted the news every chance he got and deluded the American people many times in the past.
From what I read, I am not alone in seeing that CBS is just making a bad situation worse with this stonewall attitude and the absolutely RIDICULOUS notion that all the evidence they had for the story is forged, but the story itself is true.
Sweet Bejus! They remind me of a kid tying a towel around his neck and attempting to fly off the front porch like Superman. After the kid crashes and burns, he crawls out of the dirt, ignores the derisive hoots of every witness to the act and says defiantly, "I FLEW, dammit! And that's the truth! If you don't believe me, ask my 86 year-old grandmother! She SAW me do it."
Pardon the pun, but I don't believe that this tactic is going to fly, either.
