Bummer. I was blissfully unaware for several days that the only Sunday Morning political reporter worth a tinker's damn passed away. While he sometimes dropped the ball and didn't go after guests when he should have, Russert was head, shoulders, chest, belly, hips and thighs over the rest of the field. His death leaves us almost totally at the mercy of the Hannitys and Olbermans of the world.
I understand Brokaw is under consideration as a fill-in until a new anchor is chosen. I hope it is a temporary arrangement. I think there are better candidates out there, like Andrea Mitchell, David Gregory, and Chuck Todd.
Just please, not Chris f-ing Matthews. That ass would ruin the show.
