Dan Rather still thinks forged Bush memos are real. Is there an adjective in the English language adequate to the task of describing how stupid this man is?

No, JP, there isn’t. News readers seem to be as dumb as rocks. Ever hear Brian Willians try to speak for himself? It is uncomfortable to listen to or watch.

Actually, there is a term that would accurately describe this level of stupidity – “Obama voter”.

The word is HUBRIS.

MSM news anchors are like the little kids in the car seats that feature a steering wheel and pedals. Rather and Mapes tried to drive their daddy’s car and subsequently got spanked.

Well Dan, next time someone writes memos pertaining to a political candidate you don’t like that purport to be from one era, maybe he/she should make sure they use technology CONSISTENT with that era. It’s kinda stupid to present an “authentic” copy of the US Constitution written on a typewriter, ain’t it Dan? Even you should be able to understand that. Look up the word “anachronism” sometime.

The modern word that ” may ” fit is ” Obamanated ” where fantasy is substituted for reality without knowing it . To the affected , when the truth of a situation is made know , dread and or darkness overtakes their soul and Fantasy ushers in to calm them down . This is a very reactionary condition as when confronted with truth and/or reality , the affected tend to have a violent reaction , which many would describe as denial in action .

I know its not a real word now , but one day………………..

Agreed Neo-7. There is no thinking involved with Rather. It is a conditioned liberal reflex response.

It’s not stupidity.. it’s mental illness.

I saw this POS in a Barnes & Noble in NYC one time. I knew him immediately, looked him straight in the eye and walked past his sorry ass like he was a cardboard cutout. He was totally unnoticed that day. He had a lost look on his face like, why don’t they ask me for my autograph. He’s a sick liberal old fool.

I disagree about Rather being a liberal. He is a leftist. Leftists are as far from freedom as we are from Alpha Centauri. The real “liberals” are those of us who believe in freedom, small government, and personal property rights.

It’s a pretty messed up word. It’s pointless to do the ol’ “Jefferson was a true liberal” thing, because the word has moved on to a new meaning. It’s like “mad”: used to mean “insane”; now it means “angry.” “Fond” meant “stupid”; now it means “attracted to.”

One definition of “liberal” is “progressive,” which is what the Founding Fathers were in their day. They were rebels, but they set up a brilliant system, which current-day liberals want to tear down.

If you live under a monarchy in the 1700s, then it’s virtuous to fight the system. If you live under something as wonderful as our Constitution, then a rebel is by no means virtuous.

The word “liberal” also means “overly generous in handing out portions of something.”

I’d think twice about trying to reclaim it as a positive descriptor.

Mad also means “very.” As in, “I am mad kewl.”

The one that gets me is “sick,” as in “Dude, that was sick!” Dang. When I hear the word “sick” I think of a pungent viscous flying up out of my stomach and spraying out of my mouth… just before I can manage to make it to the toilet.

Well, that’s all shades of slang usage which is always changing, and always irritates the older ones. Do you remember “tough” meaning “good”? I thought it was pretty groovy.

Ted was the archetype of the modern TV newsman, wasn’t he?

I think Rather was the model for Ted.

Nine years down the road and that old fool Rather is as delusional as ever. Besides Dan only the dunces at Kos and the DU believe those memos weren’t forged, but they are even more dlusional than Rather.

I think you are looking for two words that describe this fraud.

Dan Rather is still traumatized from the beating he got from the loony that was asking him “What’s the frequency Kenneth”.
Besides if it’s forged documents he wants, He needs look no further then “Dear Leader’s” hidden stash.

Rather is maybe the most blatently dishinest newscaster of the precable era in my opinion. He has an extremely high opinion of himself, & outside of his bank account, does’nt have much to offer as proof that he is worthy of the praise he demands.
