Ridiculing impeachment
Russert wanted to further marginalize Kucinich--to ridicule him in a flying saucer kind of way--and, like a trial lawyer who already knows what a defendant's answer will be--his "serious question" was "Did you see a UFO?"

Brian Williams--in his capacity as host of "Saturday Night Live"--referred to the mainstream media's proactive assumption that Hillary Clinton will win in the primaries and then in the general election. Fundraising is the name of that particular political game, because the candidates with the most money will buy the most TV commercials and print ads.
We’ve no problem raising the money. If we can knock out the media bias (blogs are great; print is dead) we’ve got a chance.
Tim Russert gives a claymation face to that open conspiracy. And in the process, that old saying and song, "There's no business like show business," lands in the outdated metaphors graveyard. There is indeed a business like show business. It's the news.
As Don Henley sang:
We all know that crap is king
Give us dirty laundry.
