More on Meet the Press

According to this article from Media Matters for America Tim Russert, host of Meet the Press explained that he did extend invitations to appear on the show to both Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

"And our viewers should know we extended invitations to the new Democratic leaders in the House and Senate, incoming Speaker Nancy Pelosi [D-CA], Majority Leader Harry Reid [D-NV]. Both declined our invitation, but we hope they'll be here on a future Sunday."

Apparently, while Russert was covering his ass, I was shouting too loudly at John McCain, who asserted his belief that the US should send more troops into Iraq, or Lieberman, who was his usual noncommittal self throughout his 15 minutes of fame on the show.

Media Matters for America takes the case further, noting that other prominent Democrats such as Rahm Emmanuel, Chuck Schumer, John Murtha, Steny Hoyer, Dick Durbin, or any of the newly-elected Democratic Senators, like Jim Webb (VA), Claire McCaskill (MO), Sheldon Whitehouse (RI), John Tester (MT), Bob Casey, Jr. (PA) or Sherrod Brown (OH).

Russert and the producers of Meet the Press made the choice to air their show with out-of-touch McCain and the self-inflated Lieberman, two tried-and-untrue faces well known to American viewers. Leave it to the networks to take the easy way out and stick with the company line, "we must win in Iraq, no matter what the cost."

Ugh! I'm sick of Republicans and their policies, but I'm almost thoroughly disgusted with laziness, ineptitude and the lack of understanding that everything changed on November 7.
