Tim Russert, Dead at 58
The entire NBC news organization seems to be in complete shock this afternoon. It seems that while he annoyed the crap out of us, they genuinely loved him.
So I offer my deep and sincere condolences to his family, his friends and his colleagues. 58 is too young.
Update, 10:15 PM EST: Okay, I take it all back. Look, I'm sorry the guy died and I realize that his colleagues are sad and all, but they're supposed to be in the fucking news business, and believe it or not, there was actual news today.
LIKE THE WHOLE STATE OF IOWA IS UNDERWATER. Sheesh. They're acting like the fucking pope died.
