i can't believe it.

i actually got a chill down my body when i saw it. the world lost a great political commentator today, and more so, a great person. there's probably a thread about this, but i'm not really thinking straight at the moment. besides if bo diddley got numerous threads, so can he.

god rest his soul.

what am i going to do on sundays? you know what would be bold? to retire meet the press, the longest running show in television, in his memory. i mean a ton of its hosts have died, but never so sudden. and he was the longest running host. man ... this is intense.

He was like the only tv reporter that actually even feigned objectivity. And he fact checked like a mother****er. The level of political discourse is going to take a massive hit.

who's next?! chris matth-- nay ... i do not dare to even say it.

i shouldn't be so effected by something like this. but i am.

A few days before he died, he had an audience with the Pope. He was in Italy for a family vacation but returned home before the rest of the family, who was still in Italy when he died.


wow. as a catholic, i can tell you that's the way to go out. but why so soon? his son just graduated college.

its definitely sad when someone dies so sudden like that.

RIP Tim.

it sounds like olbermann is on the verge of tears ... well as close as he can be, he's got a pretty stern demeanor, but closer than usual. well this isn't live so ... i guess he WAS on the verge.

i totally agree, the world will be very different without Tim Russert. I loved Meet the Press. I guess now I'll watch Face the Nation, which isn't nearly as good.

oh my god ... right around the corner from father's day. could they pile on anymore emotional baggage?

i don't even want to smoke anymore. i think tim russert just made me aware of my own mortality. a man 40 years my senior.

It happened during the middle of a recording I heard too... That means there's a video. I don't want to see it. This man had a very sharp mind. Always quick to come back with a thought provoking point. His interview with Hilary was quite the mind teaser. Rest in peace man.

When my mom told me, I was actually sad. He was a genius and a great political commentator.

RIP, Tim.
