"Tim Russert was not the unalloyed saint of tough journalism that his celebrators describe in posthumous tributes, but he was at least a classic American success story, of the sort that we still enjoy pretending is common: Blue-collar kid from Rust Belt town becomes enormously successful thanks largely to brains and hard work. The story of Luke Russert, alas, is a much more common one in American life: No-account kid of successful person has more success thrust upon him.
Pretty much immediately upon the death of his father, Luke Russert inexplicably had a full-time broadcasting job, supplanting his part-time broadcasting job co-hosting a satellite radio sports talk show with James Carville. (That was a real thing that actually existed. Can you imagine a human who would want to listen to that?)"

LP - This also could be called no more keggers for big Russ's grandchild. It's time for him to put on his big boy suit and pretend he really knows what he is talking about. Just stand here kid, hit your mark and pretend you know what you're talking about.
Such gravitas you get right out of college to the evening news. He must have been the best man for the job.
