A Video Tribute To Tim Russert, Dead Today At 58

NBC/MSNBC political broadcaster Tim Russert died today at work in Washington,killed by a sudden heart attack. Russert and his family had just returned from a vacation in Italy where they were celebrating the college graduation of son Luke. The VP of News for NBC and head of all Washington operations for the network, Russert joined the company in 1984 after working for Democratic campaigns. He took over Meet the Press in 1991 and won myriad awards for his journalism and books. Good-bye Tim! Election night won't be the same without you. And now, let's enjoy a Wonkette/YouTube/Photo tribute to "Lil' Russ."


Here's Russert back in '92, proving that Hillary was just telling more lies when she did the whole "Well, Bill didn't have the nomination wrapped up until June when RFK got assassinated" thing.

And this is Evil Terry McAuliffe from just a month ago, telling Tim that Tim's famous dad "Old Russ" is dead.

Tim Russert was just like us! This is Tim picking his nose on teevee in March, during one of the five-thousand primary contests.

Who can forget Russert asking Dennis Kucinich and Bill Richardson about space monsters from Outer Space, at one of those Democratic candidate debates?

Russert loved him some baseball, as we see in this Wonkette Exclusive photo somebody sent us, of Tim looking like a happy slob at a Nationals game last summer.

Party Crash

How many times did Tim Russert appear in Wonkette Party Crash features? Pretty much all of them. Here's Tim having fun at some National Journal party we went to, back in September 2006.

Corrupt!

But, while Tim was many good things to many good people, he was also a corrupt Washington hack who had a LARGE PART in the whole Judith Miller/Scooter Libby inside baseball CIA Plamegate thing. Remember that? No? Anyway, everybody in Washington media is corrupt, so don't act hurt that we mention this. Plus, he hated Chris Matthews.

Here's a paultard talking to a picture of Tim Russert.

And this is why, HAW HAW, LIL RUSS PWNED DOKTOR PAULZ!!1!

Doing what he loved best: Going NERD CRAZY over politics and political history.

And this is Tom Brokaw, sadly announcing the sad news on MSNBC just now. :(

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
