Meet the Press

In a sign of desparation, optimism, or perhaps possession of very incriminating photos of Tim Russert doing things that Rick Santorum can only dream of, President Bush will be on Meet the Press this Sunday.

Most expect Russert to lob softballs at the president, but even so, it’s not Bush’s best forum. Russert once had a reputation as a very tough interviewer, though liberals question that now, with a fair amount of justification. In any event, Brad DeLong has some great ideas for questions Tim could ask, if he wants to be tough.
