Russert: A Flower Child?

We always suspected that Tim Russert was a closet hippie, and now, thanks to Tom Brokaw’s “Meet The Press” appearance, we have confirmation.

Talking about his new book, “Boom! Voices of the Sixties: Personal Reflections on the ’60s and Today,” Brokaw said, “It encompasses everyone from Karl Rove to Arlo Guthrie, even Tim Russert who was at Woodstock as it turns out with a Fu Manchu mustache.”

After some banter about the struggles of the decade of free love and peace signs, Russert added, “You should know I went to Woodstock with a Buffalo Bills Jersey with a case of beer.”

Oh, and he flashed a peace sign. Peace and love, Tim.
