Thank good ness I wasn't the only one who thought all this fawning over Russert after his death was ridiculous. He was no more hard-nosed than the rest. Couldn't be otherwise, or no one would come on his show again.

And now they have drafted his son to be on the MSNBC election coverage. Did this kid get a dregree in journalism? Has he followed politics? Give me a break!
