The only thing to say about this is that it’s really sad and I was a fan. Maybe tomorrow I’ll affectionately tease the memory of NBC political analyst, bureau chief and Meet the Press host Tim Russert with something about that ridiculous 8×10 white board he sported during the 2000 election. Maybe not. Now brace yourselves for the slew of speculative pieces in the coming days over which heir apparent will, ought, won’t, should, deserves, has been groomed, and so on to fill that Sunday morning chair. You know Katie Couric’s agent has already made a few calls.
Tim Russert Keels Over Dead At Work. Sucks.
