When I first started posting this thread, these two where the best of the Sunday shows. Now both are gone. While I respect Mr Russert and am sorry he passed, I loved Tony and am devastated by his passing. Truly a sad Sunday for us all!

I’m sure Rush will take the AP to the woodshed again this morning.

We’re suffering with 69 degrees this morning in NW Arkansas.

lol

It has been a mild summer — so far.

Usually by now, we have temps nearing 100 — with humidity.

They just announced he’ll be on Fox and Friends as well.

Hmm Foxnews Sunday originates from Washington.

I just don’t see him phoning in to Foxnews Sunday though.

Tony played SIX instruments, AB!

He was Gulliver in the media land full of Lilliputians IMO.

Last night, on Greta's show about Tony, she showed some clips of Tony playing his flute. He was very good! The thread last night had some clips of him playing with Jethro Tull. Ian called in, and evidently, Tony had convinced him to get tested, and it may have saved his life.

Rush is coming up on F&Fs about Tony.

Me too.

Last night while he was talking Greta blinked like a million times.

Wonder what excessive blinking means?

Blepharospasm, consisting of excessive blinking of both eyes, is an involuntary movement disorder which usually continues long-term. It can be confused with other conditions. Symptom-relieving, but not curative, treatment is available.

I hope it’s not a result of her plastic surgery.

I thought it was just because she was uncomfortable having Rush on.

She cut Rush short, didn’t she? He sounded kind of shocked—OK, bye Greta.

For Fox and Friends.

He’ll also be on Foxnews Sunday later this morning.

I hope he’ll be live on that show.

Probably some of that, too!

Still, she does work for Fox, and has for many years now. Tony was such a nice guy, and very friendly behind the scenes as well as on camera. Maybe she was blinking back tears. Like a lot of feminists I’ve known, they think it’s weak of them to cry. Sometimes, though, even men should have a cry.

That’s very possible.

Greta has done a pretty good job of staying fair and balanced at Fox.

She’s taken some hits from the MSM for it too.

Rush knows about hard breaks. To me, he sounded surprised about how quick she cut him off.

I agree. I never watch her show, as excessive blatherings over the latest hot media murder trial never seemed like news to me, but I figured any liberal who could put up with being on Fox News year after year probably is pretty fair and balanced, as they say!

Yeah a lot of times Foxnews is just on as the default channel.

Greta does a whole mix of things besides murder trials too.
She’s interviewed many political figures and done other news too.

To: Miss Didi; Tony Snow

Many thanks for your great posting of those pics of our FRiend Tony Snow. I didn’t realise how much he changed over the course of his travail until now. My favourite recollection of Tony at the White House Press Office podium was a retort he gave to one of the MSM idiots to the effect of “Why do you embarrass yourself by asking a question you already KNOW will not be answered!” Many times they tried to trip him up, but he used his wit and honesty to zing them back to look like the fools they often are. We’ll not see his kind again so soon, sad to say.

I expect we’ll see him holding court in our Lord’s Press Room by and by.

Rest in peace, Tony.

LOL Maureen Dowd wrote a column about his ears.

Rush says Obama sought out Dowd in the crowd and said

“Don’t talk about my ears. I’m very uncomfortable about my ears”

LOL!!!!!!!!

I understand Tony was quite the Freeper.
