Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out, Dan

The Washington Post has compiled a great list of Dan Ratherisms as a tribute to his departure from CBS.
I had no idea this guy was as good as Bush.

• Texas is "the big enchilada or, if not an enchilada, then a huge taco."
• On the Democrats' challenge, "It was always a big rock up a high hill. The rock just got bigger and the hill just got higher."
• Election results were "scary enough to make the Democrats' fingernails sweat."
• Election night was "the long kiss goodnight for Bob Dole."
• In reference to a poll showing Colin Powell would have beaten Clinton: "Woulda, coulda, shoulda. If a frog didn't have long hind legs, he wouldn't have squat to jump with."
• "This race is tight like a too-small bathing suit on a too-long ride home from the beach."
• "Sip it, savor it, cup it, photostat it, underline it in red, press it in a book, put it in an album, hang it on the wall, George Bush is the next president of the United States."
• "We've lived by the crystal ball and learned to eat so much broken glass tonight that we're in critical condition."
• "This race is hotter than a Times Square Rolex."
• "This race is humming along like Ray Charles."
• "This situation in Ohio would give an aspirin a headache."
• "We don't know what to do. We don't know whether to wind a watch or bark at the moon."
