Dan, You still here? Get going already.

Tomorrow is finally Dan Rather's last night of boring people from the CBS anchor desk. I won't attempt to hide my antipathy for the man and his well-established liberal bias. However, I'm surprised how many in his own business are raining on his going away parade. The latest to say good riddance was his predecessor, Walter Cronkite. Ed from Captain's Quarters has a partial transcript (with commentary, of course) of Cronkite being interview by Wolf Blitzer on CNN.

Separately, Rep. Tom Feeney (R-Fla.) is hosting a fundraiser Wednesday at the Capitol Hill Club to celebrate the last broadcast of veteran "CBS Evening News" anchor Dan Rather, who has long vexed conservatives with a liberal bias.

The "C'est La Vie Comrade Rather" event - for the benefit of Tom Feeney for Congress - will be held from 5-7 p.m., during which attendees will watch Rather's final newscast at 6:30

His last broadcast will probably be the only one in over a decade where he wins his time slot, as people (myself NOT included) tune in just to see if he goes out like Peter Finch's Oscar winning character in the movie Network. If Rather needs any encouragement, Finch is the only actor to receive an Oscar posthumously.
