Help Katie find a signoff

CBS News is running a contest to come up with a sign-off for Katie Couric's newscast.

I proposed: "On behalf of Rush Limbaugh and the Karl Rove Noise Machine, This is Katie Couric, dancing on Ed Murrow's grave."

Hmmm. Last night, Katie Couric gave some airtime to Rush Limbaugh--on the grounds, I guess, that the poor fellow has no other outlets for making his views (that is to say, Karl Rove's talking points) known to the public.

Keith Olbermann having appropriated Ed Murrow's "Good night and good luck," and Cronkite's "And that's the way it is" still in retirement," they're open to suggestions

Seems to me like a good way to offer CBS News a little constructive feedback on how Katie's doing

If you have a good one please send it to CBS.

BTW, I've cross-posted this to my Daily Kos diary, where it's getting more traffic and some additional suggestions.

I love it... liberals that loved Katie Couric forever are now hating her just because she had Rush Limbaugh on her show for two minutes... That is so typical of a liberal. If a liberal doesn't get their way they go off whining to the world... then usually contact the ACLU to say their rights were violated... so typical and so predictable... but on the other hand, consistent... consistently stupid and moronic too.

Yes. I can feel your love.

What? as if the right wing has been silent, uncomplaining, or whining for the past twenty years.

The weird thing is that the right controls the White House, the House of Representatives, the Senate, the Supreme Court, Fox News... and their posture in the world is to compalain that they're a persecuted minority.

Poor, poor, pitiful you.
