Racist video of the day

Dan Rather: (Obama) is a nice person... but he couldn't sell watermelons if you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic.

Tip: Big Journalism

Now, in all honesty, I don't think Rather was saying anything about Obama that he wouldn't say about Bush, Carter, Clinton ... or me. Of course, if he did say it about me, he'd be wrong. How do I know? I've sold watermelons ... and didn't need state troopers to flag down traffic.

Rather will get a pass. Not because it was not intended to be racist, but because of his liberal cred. However, if someone from Fox News had said this, there would be a lynching.

Or is that racist?

Update: Totally stolen image from Hope n' Change

One additional thought: On the bright side, since the left is giving Rather a pass on this, it's now okay to refer to Obama as "That Watermelon Salesman"


  1. Rather is a moron. He has proven it beyond any doubt.

  2. Yeah, Rather should get a pass. The feeble of mind should be pitied.
