Tim Russert was buried today. I know a lot of people took it very hard (myself included). Sometimes you get that way with people who are famous. I thought about it over the weekend, and I think the best thing about him – the thing that anyone else who wants to do what he did for a living should remember – is this: If someone put a gun to your head, could you say with certainty what political party Tim Russert belonged to?

This video is from his funeral. Apparently, Bruce Springsteen was Russert’s fave. But the Boss never appeared on MTP. A fact that Brokaw pointed out. So he did this. It’s nice. But I bet he feels shitty that he never appeared.

Stop feeling bad now.
