DISH'S Sunday morning was just horrible. Life is just not right without Tim Russert. Politics will be the same but the way they are reported and dissected will not.He was the best at what he did and knew the sport of politics from the inside out. He was relentless in his questioning and did his research better than any of the talking heads. He was the reason the other shows had to step up their game. He would research every vote his guests had ever made and would not let them get away with anything. Tim Russert was the best. He is already sorely missed.
A clot in Tim Russert's left artery led to his heart attack on Friday an autopsy report has revealed. He suffered from asymptomatic coronary artery disease. Tim's physician was surprised, saying Russert had a stress test in April that came back normal.
Tim's son Luke will be on the Today Show with Matt Lauer in the first half hour of the show Monday morning. DISH will be up watching. It's still resonating with us seeing the silent, music less empty chair this morning.
