Want to see Vintage Tim Russert ripping an asshole a new asshole? Check out these video clips of his Sunday show with Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff. Russert's opening question: "Are you considering resignation?" Clip 1 is the handjob, then clip 2 aims for penetration. Tim quotes me at the end of clip two, re: a nuclear of biological attack!
Check out Americablog's excellent summary of why the desperate White House spin attempting to blame this situation on the city government and state of Louisiana is so asinine.

Of course no one in the White House responded, they're all on their well-earned vacations.
