Tim Russert, R.I.P.

NBC's news division has gone down the crapper in the last few years, but Tim Russert remained a first-rate interviewer and journalist.

He was one of the good ones.

And now he is gone.

He is missed.

Russert may have had a background in Democratic politics, but he was about the most fair-minded journalist in the mainstream media. He threw tough questions at Democrats and Republicans alike ... and that's why I respected the hell out of him.

Speaking from a political perspective, he will truly be missed starting this Labor Day (when the 2008 capaign kicks into high gear).
