We already know that Tim “Lil Russ” Russert likes to stack his Sunday morning panels with conservatives like himself because overpaid DC Kool Kid media-types like to stay in their comfort zone. So I found it humorous when, on a day that Russert had on Kos and Jonathan Alter, that he felt the need to wave the Magic Russert Wand of Objectivity over Byron York:
MR. RUSSERT: Byron York, youâ€™re a conservative writer, but aâ€”an interesting, objective observer of American politics. Be counterintuitive here. Who do you think would be the strongest Democrat to run against the Republicans in 2008?
Byron York: “an interesting, objective observer of American politics“.
Describing him as an “objective observer” is like describing him as a “large black man”…
