A communist dictator.... and Fidel Castro Posted by Hello

Here is a great lists of "Danisms" from Dan Rather's election night reporting:

"Do you hear that knocking...President Bush's re-election is at the door..."
"Thin as turnip soup."
"Put on another cup of coffee...we may be all in the waiting room for quite awhile."
"If you have to bet the double wide…”
"This race is humming along like Ray Charles."
"We had a slight hitch in our giddy up, but we corrected that."
"If you believe that, you believe that rocks can grow."
"What John Kerry needs is the equivalent of Tom Brady coming off the bench."
"These electoral votes are swinging like Count Basie"
"They can play Johnny Be Good in Illinois"
"Hotter than a Times Square Rolex"
"We need Billy Crystal to Analyze This"
"Let's hit these biscuits with a dab of gravy." As he wraps up information so far at 7:26 p.m. "Don't taunt the alligator until you cross the creek." On Joe Lockhart's saying the big voter turnout will help Kerry.
"Bush is sweeping through the South like a big wheel through a cotton field." On early Bush victories projected in Southern states.
"This race is hotter than the devil's anvil." On Kerry and Bush's electoral vote counts getting tighter around 8:00 p.m.
"In some ways, George Bush's lead is as thin as November ice." On the fact it's still early and key states not counted yet.
"It don't mean a thing if they don't get those swing states."

As a so-called "respected newsman", his phrases make me as nervous as a pregnant nun.
