Forgive me for hijacking a topic for a moment, but Kaus has up a funny little exchange between Russert and Carville the weekend.

R. RUSSERT: James Carville, before you go I understand that politics may be part of your past, that you're going to go on XM Satellite Radio and do sports?

MR. CARVILLE: Well, Mr. Russert, I can't talk about that too much, but I think there going to be a story tomorrow's paper. Tomorrow night I'll be on the Jay Leno show on NBC, and we'll be talking about some exciting new developments and maybe a new twist on an old career.

MR. RUSSERT: With anyone I know?

MR. CARVILLE: Maybe you would be familiar with someone I'll be teaming up in this, but let's just say it's going to offer a generational look at sports and the coaches of sports and things like that ... [Emph. added]

The catch is that person Carville can't talk about is Russert college son and so there goes the indignation.

But I instantly thought of you...when reading this exchange, I wonder if Russert if asked about this exchange and speaking of his son he could deny that he said anything about his son?

Get what I am getting at. I know you can articulate it better, whatcha think? Fits the parsy deniability criteria I think.


it's like wink, wink talk. You don't say what you are saying.


Not to mention how much the media has become inheritable///Wallaces/Koppels/Russerts (the kid is an illiterate BTW), etc. Sure sign of an industry on its way down.



Just in case, I was relating this to Russerts weasly Libby words (sometimes I'm challenged in getting my main point across)


Ilike how you think and your points are clear and insightful and you usually throw in a new scoop as well.


Ts--I understood very well the point you were making..I think you are very comprehensible and I almost always agree with you.In fact, I think you made a very clever observation. Russert is obviously good at communicating with plausible deniability.


As comprehensible as Ozzy Osbourne.


Russert got hammered for that by Arianna Huffington. And a few seconds later in the transcript, Mary Matalin pretty much announces that Russert's son is the topic.

Not to mention how much the media has become inheritable...

Brilliant planning - Littlest Russ can cover the Chelsea inaugural.


Mary Matalin pretty much announces that Russert's son is the topic.

Still, though...Mary slam-danced while Russert "TIP-TOED"...

Tell me, was the transcript post Ari? That would be delicious..

I think it's an excellent observation.

I don't know. This one seemed to work pretty well:

Some people say the bear is tame. Others say it's vicious and dangerous. Since no one can really be sure who's right, isn't it smart to be as strong as the bear? If there is a bear?
