Tim Russert is Dead

Today Tom Brokaw, the last of the great men of news, announced that the first citizen of classic punditry, one of the true class acts in American Politics, had passed. I'll let the President speak for me on this issue-
"He was an institution in both news and politics for more than two decades. Tim was a tough and hardworking newsman. He was always well-informed and thorough in his interviews. And he was as gregarious off the set as he was prepared on it"
He was the longest running host of Meet the Press in history, and made his mark on the medium in ways I can't express. So for Tim, I'll say somthing I've never said before and may never say again- Go Buffalo Bills. He will be missed
