More on Hurricane Russert...

It's one thing to be simplistically confrontational on your own show, but to interject yourself into a national forum setup to allow candidates to debate each other on the issues that matter to voters is indeed going from gotcha to just plain insane. I gotta hand it to both candidates for their composure. I would have told him to shove it. All he succeeded in doing was waste everyone's time.

He went off the deep end last night. I used to think highly of him, but this was sheer grandstanding on his part. A quick search on Google News turns up similiar articles today taking Russert to task, like this one here. I'm all for aggressive questioning of political candidates, but a) this was the wrong forum, and b) his line of questioning, especially regarding Farrakhan, was a Bizarro World version of "Six Degress of Kevin Bacon."
