I just watched Durbin on Tim Russert's show. Russert let him off the hook on a question related to Roberts confirmation hearing.

Russert played a clip of Clinton as president saying he would appoint a Supreme Court nominee that believed in the right to choose.

Russert then asked, why is it okay for a democrat president to follow his philosophy on appointments but a Republican president can not.

Durbin never answered the question (just gave typical politician non answer). Russert let him ramble on and never came back to the question.

I kept thinking, where is Bill O'Reilly. He would would have told Durbin to stop right there and answer the question. Russert let Durbin spin on and on and on.

A real yelling at the TV moment and a reminder of why I rarely watch Russert. If he can not follow up on his own tough questions in his own show, then why do I need to watch.

Russert is a Rat in disguise.

Russert doesn't get paid the big bucks for embarrassing or antagonizing liberal guests. He gets paid for dancing with them. Period.
