Tim Russert plays softball with John Keryy

By

On Sunday's Meet The Press, John Kerry was given the first half—hour. ButTim Russert failed to follow—up on the promise that Kerry made on the same show some eighteen months ago, to wit: that he would within a matter of days or at most a few weeks sign the DOD form authorizing the release of all of his military records.  In fact it was more than a promise, it was essentially a pledge, and it was made not once, but twice.
 
I didn't think Kerry would have the nerve to return to the show, because I was certain that the supposedly tough, aggressive questioner Russert would nail him.  So the question is: did Russert simply cop—out, or was he somehow bought—off, or is he suffering from Alzheimer's?
 
Well, what can one expect from a news organization that hires Muslim plants to go to NASCAR events for the purpose of hopefully provoking trouble that can be taped —— dirty looks, verbal slurs, or maybe, if their fondest wish came true, a fight, that might escalate into a melee, in which people might be injured or even killed?
