Dan Rather, in flightsuit, on deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln!!!
via Instapundit ^ | 1/3/05

Posted on 01/03/2005 12:45:40 PM PST by Timeout

Dan Rather will be anchoring from Indonesia and the Navy released a photo of him on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln in his flight suit.

I find this hillarious after the way the left pilloried Bush for "wearing a costume" for his landing on the....ta da!....USS Abraham Lincoln! LOL!

The Lefties...the gift that keeps on giving.

He can wear all the flight suits he wants but he'll never fill the boots of GWB! Dubya's the man. Rather is pathetic. Copy cat rather.

What's wrong with the airlines? Other than losing your luggage and keeping you on an airplane for 28 hours, that is?

That was probably his call sign and painted on his flight helmet.

A few hours later as Dan is being flown around:

AIRMAN IN HELICOPTER: "Yes, Mr. Rather, you can see much better if you lean out the open door a little more. That's good, just a little more. Just a tad more...."

RATHER: AIEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

Did he personally criticize Bush for wearing the flightsuit? I don't recall. IIRC, it's mandatory when riding in a combat aircraft, and both the S-3 Viking (that Bush flew in) and the H-60 Blackhawk (in the background), qualify?

If he personally commented this is TFF.

Ah...ya seen one wannabe in a flight suit, ya seen em all. But the CINC in a flight suit IS the CHIEF!

...seriously though...what's with Rather's "get up"?

I do believe that his being there constitutes FOD hazard, and he should therefore be picked up on the next FOD walk and tossed overboard. :-)
