Yeah right. The Manson or Gambino family, maybe.

Don't be sad, Tim is with Princess Di right now, riding their rainbow unicorns to the Candy Mountain.

My understanding is that despite the Third-Day prophecies, he's still dead.

as the days passed, many would remember exactly what they were doing at exactly the time they first heard about tim russert's death, now known and honored throughout the news world as "the day the news stood still"...

next week: an in-depth analysis of what direct effect the death of russert has had on world news events, and how it affects world leaders and their decisions, complete with scenarios.

Aye, Tim's dead.

However, NBC Nightly News host Brian Williams moderated "Meat the Repressed" any way this weekend. "Campaign 2008" featured hope-and-change Obama disciple, Sen. Joe Biden, and trickle-down-warbucks advocate, charismatic Sen. Lindsay Graham, national McCain campaign co-chair. It was followed by one of those lively political roundtable things Tim always loved having.

We the Repressed indirectly paid for a loving tribute ad via Boeing(Nobody did it better. No one ever will. In fond memory of Tim.)to Tim on MSNBC-GE.
