Couric to File Rather's Memos

Katie Couric is apparently very close to leaving her morning show to take Dan Rather's old job anchoring the CBS evening news.

I have never been a regular viewer but I do remember hearing that her show's ratings were suffering around election time 2004, supposedly because her regular audience was put off by her rather biased (pun intended) political views. I'd catch a segment occasionally and that sure is the way it seemed to me.

Well I'll never forget the look on Katie's face the morning after the election. She literally looked like she was choking on a shit sandwich when she had to report four more years of George Bush. Either that or her dog had just died.

Anyway, whoever's in charge over at CBS apparently hasn't learned anything from the disgrace they suffered in the wake of Memogate. Like Dan Rather I'm sure they don't see any bias whatsoever in their worldview. Everybody they went to an Ivy League school with and chat with at social events in the penthouses overlooking Central Park sees the world just like they do. Katie's going to fit in so well.

My favorite Katie moment...

was in 2000 during a special live TV report with Dan Abrams on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court reading the decision in Bush v. Gore. After he read the decision a flabbergasted Couric stammered, "Wait does that mean Bush wins?" When the camera focused in on her she was fighting back tears. Shit sandwich anyone?
