The press is finally getting around to covering the Russert Death Coverage just as the ruminations/tributes are starting to slow. But I have to admit I am still mildly obsessed with Russert as dead-media-cult-figure. I can’t stop watching/reading about Russert.

I watched his show every Sunday but I admit I sometimes dreaded it or clicked away. Any time Biden was on. Any time Russert let a Republican and Democrat play policy ping-pong. I was changing channels. Still. The memorial service was good enough to watch twice. But can the media folk stop making a big deal about drinking Rolling Rock?
