I love this guy. Swift, not Russert.

Vicious and funny and smart and goddamn poetic, if I may.

I liked Russert. He actually came across as giving a shit from time to time, but even our Beatified Timmy just could not look himself in the mirror hard enough to understand the life and money and fame influences that inevitably fall upon any human finding any combination of the three.

I know I’m in the minority now, but I don’t think Nixon, Reagan, OR Russert was a Saint. I think they were human beings. As evidence, I present my observation, anecdotal certainly, that everyone I’ve ever met is a human being.

All that being said, our current Administration makes even Nixon look like a Saint, so I can’t let go completely of my belief in monsters. Which obviously has to keep Saints in play.

Nutty, that.
