Ratherisms

It will apparently be a cold day in Texas before CBS forgives Dan Rather. Katie Couric will be turning to Bob Schieffer for expert advice, while Rather has been confined to basic cable--Comedy Central of all places. While Dan is known for his unique phraseology, his sense of humor will certainly be put to the test.

In thanks for his years at the anchor desk and to make up for CBS's shabby treatment, I think we should all pitch in to think up punch lines for Rather to use with Jon Stewart. Please post your jokes in the comment boards below. Suggested topics: "Punching Foley for Joe," Crazy Katherine Harris, and George Allen's confessional, Conrad Burns' foot-in-mouth disease, and the Voter Strangler.
