He’s like Snake Plisken (Escape from New York). People always asking “if he is dead yet” or saying “I thought you were dead”. Or “What is the frequency, Kenneth?” Poor sorry ba$turd..

There’s a lot of things that are too tough for you, Dan. Like the USMC.

Why does anybody care what Dan Rather has to say after finding out who he really is?
