Christmas comes early for Bernie

So, Dan Rather is leaving us. I can't say that I'm sorry. Seems that Mr. Rather embodied every negative stereotype of the "liberal elite." He was arrogant and projected a transparent homespun demeanor that seemed to get worse with every passing year. He will be remembered, I feel, more for his missteps than for his successes.

Bernie Goldberg & Co. will be out dancing on his grave, claiming victory in Rather's exit. Maybe it is a victory. The timing of his exit, before the release of independent investigation of the 60 Minutes National Guard story, is certainly fortuitous to conservative analysis. But, a larger truth was lost amongst the sound and fury and the success of this gambit will only serve to reinforce future obfuscation. It's a damn shame.
