    One of the things that really hurts my heart and my head is whenever Rachel has to talk to Luke Russert and, because basically they are co-workers at the same network, you get the chummy clubby small talk.

    Crap about Russert's boat shoes and his tweets.

    Knowing that, if, say Rachel were a House Rep. from northern Cal or Massachusetts, Luke Russert would be smarming her with the kind of shit he put on Elizabeth Warren.

    He's a huge part of the reason why the Right gets to skate, and non-Movement Conservatives get a pass.

    If you are going to have this standard, where PolitiFact is going to roil you into a serious lather, you should have the same standard, polite but firm refutation of nonsense and Village slambook nonsense, for the wankers that get booked on your show.

    I hate that Howard Fineman can be liberal-friendly Howie on Rachel and Lawrence, and then his wanker self at Morning Joe or Chuck Todds house of bullshit.

    But I also understand that Rachel can't get Olbermanned either.

    It sucks. Especially since the only reason Russert in there is because his dad died and his dads rich and powerful friends hooked him up because, apparently, there has to be a Russert at NBC. Because? Big Tim.

    I am from the Elizabeth Warren and Darcy Burner wing of the Democratic Party
