Keep the hot air on MSNBC

Oh, no, please, God, no:

TIM Russert's body wasn't even cold in the ground before MSNBC anchors Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann started jockeying for his job, sources claim.

Oh, wait: "Russert himself wanted Chuck Todd, the NBC News political director he hired, to succeed him, said one source, who added that MSNBC hosts don't stand a chance of landing 'Meet the Press.' The insider said, 'They're cable. They're far too partisan. They have no gravitas. If gravitas is eight letters, they're about seven letters short.' " Whew! May have dodged a bullet.

Even as far left as NBC & MSNBC have gone, I always thought Russert to be pretty fair, if not at least decent in his bi-partisanship. Matthews (or Olbermann) would send the peacock network even further into "no ratings land"...which, come to think of it, is ok by me. They are both hacks...

Agreed on every count, Tim.
(hacks is way too kind, btw)

We didn't dodge a bullet...we dodged a bloody artillery shell!
