Tim Russert

One down, so many more to go. That's actually a mild version of what I thought when I found out. It's a perfect opportunity for NBC to retool away from what they, and the entire political media establishment, have become, but (excuse the Russert-inspired pun) fat chance of that. They'll replace him with another lazy, venal hack, and nothing will change except the face. That, at least, will almost certainly be the only improvement.

I bet the brass at NBC is already getting pressure from the plutocrats to make sure he is replaced with someone of reliable lack of character.
