Battle Stations

CBS supposedly is going to issue some kind of statement at noon on RatherGate.

Let's keep phasers locked but get ready a boarding party just in case they're surrendering.

UPDATE: Well, it's just about 1:00 PM EST and either I'm blind or they still haven't signalled. Stand by.....

FURTHER UPDATE: Kerry Spot says CBS is now focusing on Killian's 86 year old former secretary. You know, the one who's already said the memos were fakes? What's Rather going to do, poke her with the soft cushions?

MORE: One of Glenn's readers suggests CBS is stalling around so they can, er, finish faking the new fakes to cover the old fakes. This reminds me of that Bloom County strip from way back where Milo is stalling the press while Opus frantically copies out fake Elvis diaries.

EVEN MORE: There is a feeling developing as we wait for the CBS announcement (now scheduled for 3:30), that it is going to take the it-doesn't-matter-that-the-memos-were-fake-because-Bush-is-still-an-AWOL-scumbag approach. I certainly hope they don't a) because I think they should face up to the music and b) because I really want to see this.

MORE: Sumbitch! Drudge is saying it's not coming out til 5:00 PM now. I give up.

LOL! Aye aye, Cap'n!

(But I wouldn't bet on it. The real retraction will come on the CBS Nightly News when Dan Rather runs himself through with a katana)
