    I watch Meet the Press for one reason

    And that one reason alone has two words

    Tim Russert indeed

    Because of his no-holds bar and no-nonsense

    Interviewing coupled with wit and charm

    He has made MTP the #1 Sunday news show

    For more ten years running and continuing on as long as he lasts!

    He isn't afraid to tackle tough subjects

    And also can be pretty intemidating but in a good kind of way

    Long live terric Tim!!
