When I was a boy, there were a variety of expressions that were common, the origin of which I knew little. If someone picked up something that didn't belong to them, we might say, “Get your cotton-pickin’ hands off of that.” I didn't occur to me until only a few years ago, that someone might interpret that as an ethnic pejorative. I suspect Dan Rather has that problem once in a while, being from the South and all.

Still, it's mildly amusing to watch.
