The Voice Of Liberalism: Dumber Than Pigshit

There are no words for how stupid crap like this is:

If you were watching MSNBC's coverage of Tim Russert's untimely passing last night, you may just have witnessed John McCain's naked attempt to make the death of this institution all about himself.

Apparently, McCain thought the time was right to make self-aggrandizing jokes about Russert's technique:

When asked yesterday by reporters what it was like to be interviewed by Russert, McCain said with a smile, ``I once told him I haven't had so much fun since my last interrogation at prison camp.''

Good God.

Is the Daily Kos really influential? Do people actually read this moronic and vicious drivel and think "Right on"??

Democratic office holders should be ashamed to be associated with these dillweeds.

I suggest holding back at least a week before responding to daily kos's bait. While I also find his comment maddening it is the higher road to not sink into a debate about how to eulogize a day after the man's death.

Would you consider unpublishing your post for now and republishing later?

Steven: I hear you, and I appreciate the point. However, its not really about Russert at all, but the lengths people will go to slime a perfectly honorable man. Russert would have hated to see cowards try tp hide behind his death in order to get a "free cheapshot" for political points.

For that reason I kept it up.
