In a delightful twist, Dan Rather, disgraced former CBS Evening News anchor, will continue his 44-year personal record of covering elections going: he will be analyzing the news on Comedy Central's Indecision 2006 special at 10:00 p.m. tonight with Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. "Some viewers won't be able to tell the difference," said Bob Thompson, director of the Center for the Study of Popular Television (Syracuse University). Rather known for his folksy, quirky illustrations or "Ratherisms" has given much comedic fodder to late night talk show hosts, such as Leno and Letterman. He once commented, "This race is tight like a too-small bathing suit on a too-long ride home from the beach." Of course, many saw Rather's discredited story on Bush's National Guard service and his stubborn refusal to disavow it as dark humor that manifested a manic animosity toward conservatives in general and the Bushes in particular. Rather assessed his decision to join the Comedy Central crew tonight, stating, "It's a risk, I guess, but what the hell."
