Fuck it -- Brian Lamb for president. So-square-he's-cool former Capitol Hill staffer and C-SPAN founder Brian Lamb will receive the country's highest civilian honor (other than a link from the DN), the White House announced today.
The award is long overdue. One of our favorite Washington Journal moments ever involved Mr. Lamb calmly reading the stubbornly ignorant messages of Michael Savage supporters after a row erupted between the radio host and the cable channel. Destroying vulgar hacks like Michael Savage is fun. Sometimes they give you a medal for it.
