Rush On Journo Candidates

From Rush Limbaugh’s Wednesday show:

    RUSH: In fact, it looks to me like Fred Barnes’ candidate, Rudy Giuliani, has now dropped out. It looks like David Brooks’ candidate, Mike Huckabee, has no traction — he hasn’t won anything since Iowa — and he needs to get out. Tom Brokaw’s candidate, Hillary Clinton, she’s in deep trouble going into Super Tuesday. The race card didn’t work. She needs the “firewall” of the Latino vote. But Tom Brokaw’s candidate is floundering. Tim Russert’s candidate, Barack Obama, seems to be doing better than expected. Good for you, Tim. I’m proud of you. Olbermann’s candidate, Kucinich, is now gone. He’s back in Ohio, trying to keep his seat against a primary challenger. Mort Kondracke’s candidate, Ron Paul, gets weirder by the minute. (boos) Thank you. And I want to stress once again, ladies and gentlemen, I want to thank you for your support, and I want to assure you that I cannot — and I will not — leave the Golden EIB Microphone. (applause) I will not retire. I will not concede. (cheers and applause) I will not drift away! I will not fade away, until every American agrees with me.

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.
