There was another thread about the SOTU in HD.

Is Dan still using some of his crazy "Ratherisms" like he did during the 2000 election?


"In Florida, Georgia, Virginia, and up in New Hampshire, all in white, the polls have closed, but we don't yet have a decision on who's won. Now Florida, that race--that race, the heat from it is hot enough to peel house paint."

--Election Night, November 7, 2000.


"Bob Schieffer is covering the battle for control of the Senate. Bob, the polls have closed at Virginia. A Senate race there ugly enough, nasty enough to gag a buzzard."

--Election Night, November 7, 2000


RATHER: Joining us tonight from Nashville, Tennessee, is Bill Daley, chairman of the Gore campaign. Thanks for being with us, Mr. Chairman.

DALEY: Thank you, Dan.

RATHER: Feeling good about your chances...

DALEY: Yes.

RATHER: ...or are your fingernails beginning to sweat?

--Election Night, November 7, 2000


"Virginia drops for President Bush as expected, 13 electoral votes from the Old Dominion state go in the Bush column. This is not unexpected but it is whooping news down in Texas, 41 electoral votes now for George Bush. Bush has jumped out to a 41-to-3 electoral vote lead over Al Gore. Yes, there's a long way to go, but any way you slice it, any way you dress it up, it's a good start for George Bush."

--Election Night, November 7, 2000


"It would be surprising to some people--Ohio's 21 electoral votes are still in play, widely expected to go for Bush. But the way this night is going, wild and wooly as it is, who can say?"

--Election Night, November 7, 2000


"I can hear some people at home saying, 'Ooh, if the electoral vote count is now what Dan Rather and CBS says it is, 121 for Bush, 119 for Gore, it seems to me just a few minutes ago Bush had a long lead.' His lead has evaporated and melt--been melted faster than ice cream in a microwave. 'What's happening here?'

--Election Night, November 7, 2000 after CBS had called Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Illinois, and Michigan for Gore."

Dan let his hair down, at least what he had, on election night 2000. I could never understand why so many thought he was off his rocker as I thought it was rather entertaining. IMO the levity was appropriate, it wasn't like he was covering some tragedy, although *** political comments have been deleted ***

Dan just gets a little squirrelly when he's not reading from a teleprompter.

I'm glad for more pervasive HD coverage, as I hope it soon becomes the norm rather than the exception. However, a SOTU is hardly an event where PQ will make a big difference.

Rory Boyce works at an ABC station so he's getting the info directly from the network.

I always get into these threads when political comments have been deleted. Guess I miss all the good laughs. I guess I'll wait for the SNL or MAD skit this weekend.


I'd be interested to see how many people watch HDNet compaired to ABC.

I think ABC is providing the feed for all broadcasters. This is how it has been done in the last couple of years.

Are non-political critcisms of the newscasters allowed?
