Tim Russert Dead At 58

Tim Russert died today. I'm totally friggin' depressed about this... irrationally so, in fact. Maybe because Meet The Press is one of the only mainstream media shows I can watch without making me want to end it all. Maybe because he was 7 years younger than my own father.

Tim, we will miss you... and your enormous head.



One of my favorite Russert moments.

Timmeh couldn't hold a candle to Patrick Swazey. That guy had a really huge melon. Tim's got a great new seat for the election now, you can bet. But his commentary, well, we'll just have to imagine it for now. Vaya con Dois,Timmeh.

Having watched Meet the Press many Sunday mornings when my friends were nursing hangovers and wondering what the hell I was doing up so early, I believe Ezra Klein nails it in what he imagines Tim Russert would be saying right now to God.

"Presumably, he's up somewhere beyond the cloudline, hectoring God about His inconsistencies. 'But Lord, in Exodus 6:12, you clearly said...'"

For the pious, church or shul define the weekend, for me it was Meet the Press. I knew I was getting old when I began setting me alarm on Sundays to watch it. I am very bitter that I, living on the Left Coast, could not see his last broadcast because NBC was showing the French Open. He was the best in the biz, and we are all worse off today. Nobody will fill his shoes.

Fuck Timmeh, and the rest of his ilk. That fucker never called bullshit on any of these criminals and he was one of the few that was allowed to interview them. Rot in hell you sack of shit...

bradda - you're an idiot with the philosophy of a nine year old.

What did Russert do that was sooooooooooooooo awesome? Tell me please because all I saw him do was not grill Dick Cheney multiple times and gave those assholes a platform to spew propaganda like the rest of the MSM.

9 year old? You are far too kind Kreplech....

I still haven't heard a response to what Timmeh actually did other than being just another talking head on the TV. Where's the YouTube video of Russert attacking Bushco before the war? The video is all out of wack by the way Krep. Eat it.

Bradda, the world is round. Deal with it.
