Another Luke Russert Gem

Intrepid MSNBC Congressional Correspondent Luke ‘The Force Is Not With Me’ Russert came up with another pseudo-journalistic gem on the upcoming cloture vote to begin the process of repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Ending DADT, he said, is an issue that “excites Democrats, and fires up the base.” Um Luke … I realize you might be too busy seeking access and reading GOP talking points to fill out your reports, but in case you missed it: 78 percent of Americans favor repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, according to a new CNN poll. Some Democratic “base.” Nice touch, though, with the American flag lapel pin. Unfortunately, it can also signal TOOL, especially for aspiring independent journalists who have on occasion been called “unpatriotic” and “enemies” for bucking government. You do know you’re not an arm of the government? Luke?
