Dan Rather: Unindicted Co-Conspirator

Beldar Blog is quite beyond giving Dan Rather the benefit of the doubt. He says that Dan Rather was not some ignorant dupe, but rather an active conspirator in the fraud, and you should believe him.

So, what do we have, ladies and gentleman?

* A war unpopular with the liberals.

* A major institution rocked by an enormous scandal that actually appears fairly petty and shabby when you look closely at it.

* A cover-up which threatens to be worse than the crime.

* A secret source who has become the object of a thousand guessing games.

* The question, "What did he know, and when did he know it?"

* An co-conspirator, unindicted, but guilty as sin.

* A crime intended to swing an election, most likely assisted by officials of one of the two political parties.

* Improbably enough, a simple secretary, once again somehow smack-dab in the middle of the scandal.

* And, in a stroke of transcendental irony that just may prove that God exists after all (and that he's kind of a josher), Dan Rather at the center of the storm. Only this time he's on the dirty side, where's he always belonged.

Richard Nixon asked Dan Rather, "Are you running for something?"

It's time to ask Dan Rather that again. Because he's not acting like a journalist, nor even like a professional. He's acting like the shabbiest of sleazy machine-politicians, desperately slashing and thrashing his accusers, angry and paranoid that he's finally been caught out.

It is time for Dan Rather to go.

It is time to put our long national nightmare behind us.
