Paging Tim Russert: Big Russ is disgusted by your "F" grades in journalism
Tim, it is way past time to be polite with you and the other mediawhores. I only hope that the CIA, State Department, and the Military can force you into reporting on the fascist entity that is BushCo.

You have blood all over your hamhocked paws, Tim. And I see you in Sports Illustrated hawking your MY AMERICAN DREAM FATHER KNOWS BEST AND I HAVE STRONG BLUECOLLAR VALUES BECAUSE OF HIM book and joking about how your discuss sports with your quests on MTP. Fuck you, idiot! Do your fucking job! You're supposed to be a JOURNALIST! Go work for ESPN and grin ear to ear and make feeble raising gestures with your elbows when the Bills score like you make feeble raising gestures with your elbows when you're giving a big fun cake to Carville and Matlin for their unholy aniversary! Yippie! Blow out the candles! Its all a fun fucking game!

The disgusting obviousness of Halliburton should embarass you to tears every second of your shit-eating grin life.

Oh, and the Buffalo Bills think you're a pathetic grinning dope. They lose every time BECAUSE OF YOU and you lies.

The Paper Trail
Did Cheney Okay a Deal?
By TIMOTHY J. BURGER AND ADAM ZAGORIN
Vice President Dick Cheney was a guest on NBC's Meet the Press last September when host Tim Russert brought up Halliburton. Citing the company's role in rebuilding Iraq as well as Cheney's prior service as Halliburton's CEO, Russert asked, "Were you involved in any way in the awarding of those contracts?" Cheney's reply: "Of course not, Tim ... And as Vice President, I have absolutely no influence of, involvement of, knowledge of in any way, shape or form of contracts led by the Corps of Engineers or anybody else in the Federal Government."

Cheney's relationship with Halliburton has been nothing but trouble since he left the company in 2000. Both he and the company say they have no ongoing connections. But TIME has obtained an internal Pentagon e-mail sent by an Army Corps of Engineers officialwhose name was blacked out by the Pentagonthat raises questions about Cheney's arm's-length policy toward his old employer. Dated March 5, 2003, the e-mail says "action" on a multibillion-dollar Halliburton contract was "coordinated" with Cheney's office. The e-mail says Douglas Feith, a high-ranking Pentagon hawk, got the "authority to execute RIO," or Restore Iraqi Oil, from his boss, who is Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz. RIO is one of several large contracts the U.S. awarded to Halliburton last year.

The e-mail says Feith approved arrangements for the contract "contingent on informing WH tomorrow. We anticipate no issues since action has been coordinated w VP's office." Three days later, the Army Corps of Engineers gave Halliburton the contract, without seeking other bids. TIME located the e-mail among documents provided by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group.
