So CBS has engaged Uncle Walter to prop himself up in a chair and introduce Katie the Serious on her first night anchoring CBS Evening News next week. Nice to know she’ll have a support group around her to make sure she survives all 22 minutes of broadcast time.
According to Drudge, CBS is promising a “who’s who of Americana” to make a big splash. Who else could be among the hyperlib glitterati welcoming Katie? Hillary, for sure. Probably McCain as the token Republican. Will Jimmy Carter be on to flak his new book? How many of the usual suspects will join in? Maureen Dowd, Harry Reid, Barbra Streisand, Nancy Pelosi, and Ned Lamont all seem likely. One face you’re sure to not see: Dan Rather won’t be visible anywhere that night, unless it’s on Hardball with Matthews. Let the games begin. I only wish it were tonight. This is going to be the greatest source of amusement we’ll have until Hillary announces her presidential campaign.
