Rather: Obama Couldn’t Sell Watermelons

From the Chris Matthews Show, via YouTube:


Dan Rather "[Obama] Couldn’t Sell Watermelons"

Notice how quickly Mr. Matthews jumps in to stop Mr. Rather.

Apparently, he no longer has forgotten that Mr. Obama is black.

    Old chris must have gotten that feeling in his leg again, note how fast he jumped in there.

    You can’t make this kind of hypocricy up.

    Rather is an old-time racist right out of the Robert Byrd mold. He learned from the Massa / Boy playbook. Massas’ on Dan’s frequency liked to pretend their condesencion towards blacks, women, queers, and foreigners was Southern genteelity. That way, you see, they could sneer at them out of the left side of their mouths while advocating equality out of the right side.

    While maintaining the charade, Kenneth Dan was thrilled to make gazilliions while lecturing the entire country about everything from racism to foreign affairs from his pulpit as Ole Red Cronkrite’s successor for about 25 years. He doesn’t realize that the entire world now views him as a laughingstock.

    His senility is getting the best of him.

    Granpa: Son, lemme tell ya. Ye don’t want to go interferin’ when two idjits start ta arguin’

    Grandson: Well, I once’t heard ma and pa git into it.

    Granpa: Nahh, they’s always a-doin’ that. Ma’s and Pa’s’ll be fessin’ over a whole mess’a thangs. Ya gots to give ’em that. They’s worried ’bout their kin, their money, their doins and what-not.

    Grandson: Well, there was also this time when I hear’d ol’ Danny Rather, that news feller, git inta it with that Chris Matt-yeews guy. They was a-talkin’ bout the president an one of ’em says how’n he cain’t even sells watermelons…and that Chris guy jus’ fired back at him wif’n both barrels.

    Granpa: Yeah….like that. T’ain’t no better good time than a-watch’n two dumbasses prove who’s the stupider. Why, it’s a-warth sellin’ tickets fer.

    Dan Rather just gives a bad name for liberals.

    Racist? Maybe. But what about the fact that this was just an idiotic statement? This is not some well known metaphor, its some stupidity he threw together flying from the seat of his well creased pants. (Does anyone remember the Juan Pablo Montoya/Tacogate incident? Same thing, different results).

    But I am glad that the premier journalist in America since Cronkite is not going to get run out of town on a rail for this one, because I for one enjoy him carrying the commie torch for said dead red journalist. Cronkinte managed to infect a generation with his charming demeanor and presence and all that BS. This guy is helping to ruin all that.

    That’s what all these political jabber-mouths do!

    ~If you are about to make a solid point, they jump in to derail the question, or to say something unrelated and stupid to momentarily confuse you (and the listener) so you can’t focus on your point.

    ~If you are about to say something stupid, and you are worried your fellow liberal is about to put his/her foot in their mouth, you jump in and cut them off. If they say it anyway, cover it up with “Misspoke” “Taken out of context” “Needs a do-over” —crap like that, you have heard all the cliches a million times before.

    (my favorite when someone gets busted in any part of society) “I need to spend more time with my wife/family.” —yeah right, now that you got embarrassed out of office, that is the only thing left for you to do anyway buddy.
