Washington, D.C.: Please Dana, enough Tim Russert! Does "official Washington" realize that half of Iowa is underwater and more than one person has suffered and died in that awful mess? We have the worst natural disaster in years in the Midwest, and yet our "news" 24-7 is about a journalist who -- while maybe a beloved figure in Washington power circles -- remains unknown to most of the world.
Dana Milbank: There's flooding in Iowa?
All I know about recent meteorological events is there was a terrific rainbow over Washington after the Russert memorial.
*Shimmy has more:
I remember February 26, 2008, when Tim Russert interrogated Obama and Hillary Clinton on what they thought of Louis Farrakhan, even though the two of them have no connection to Farrakhan. But he said it in a nice way, Mary.
