Bart, everybody is just gushing over what an admirable
guy Tim Russert was.
I'm making sure they know @ every possible moment
about what a sellout he was to the Bush Evil Empire.
Robert in Seattle.
I feel like I am going insane.
I was just over at Crooks And Liars checking
out the message board concerning the death
of Tim Russert. Everybody is fawning
over this guy and using words such as "integrity" and
"respect" and "true journalist".
Now, I am not happy that he is dead. I do not
wish that on anyone. However, this guy helped
to usher in the worst Fascists this country has
ever seen. He was Dick Cheney's mouth piece
(according to Cheney himself). Why the hell are
people fawning on this guy? He was as partisan as
you can be and in the pocket of the extremists
of the Bush crime family/
What is your take?
P.S. we are still huge fans of ol' Bart
in this household. We check your sight many times a day
looking for updates and rereading the good stuff.
I've been sitting out the primaries.
Getting sick to death of them. Keep up the good
work. Always entertaining and informative.
There's a difference between making a mistake and turning
for MORE millions when you already have $30-50M in the bank.
Be sad at his passing, but let's not forget the facts.
Russert choose the money over the truth.
He spent a decade unfairly attacking Democrats while serving
as a cabana boy for the Bush Family Evil Empire.
If NBC wants to show how fair and honest he was, let them run his interviews
Bush & Cheney after the war went bad. Watch how Russert accepted
non-answer from those bloody war criminals and then went right on to
the next question
as tho the topic had been put to bed by the brilliant response of the
Then go back ten years and watch Russert bang his fist on the table
and demand that
Robert Reich or Rahm Emanual give him the truth about which of Monica's
Clinton licked first - and he'd repeat that question again and again
and again - as tho
some White House staffer was in the room with them, watching.
THAT'S How he got the reputation as a "bulldog,"
because when it came to Clintons zipper, "We
had a right to know."
But 4100 dead soliders?
ANY answer was good enough for Russert then.
You may be tempted to just let Tim's death just
slide by, but I would remind you of what
Hunter S Thompson wrote on the death of Nixon:
a long screed laying out just how venal
and nasty the man was and concluded with
"He has poisoned our water forever. Nixon
will be remembered as a classic case of
a smart man shitting in his own nest.
But he also shit in our nests,and that was the crime
that history will burn on his memory like
a brand. By disgracing and degrading the
Presidency of the United States, by fleeing
the White House like a diseased cur,
Richard Nixon broke the heart of the American
Death did Russert a massive favor. He's
off the stage now and the MSM will
circle the wagons and canonize him and propose
him for sainthood.
Unless--what's that you say, Bart?
Nobody feels good that Russert is dead, but can
we retain some perspective?
I feel bad that his family is having to go thru
this, but every family does.
He wasn't a saint - he took millions of dollars to mislead
