Still love the Brian Williams snark

When talking about Senator Johnson, comments, “Translated from the original Russian”. He is funny.

Dr Bedlia was trying to suppress a grin.

Heard it before. It's a good one.

5. As George Michael would say,

Let’s go to the video tape. And there they were, heading for the parking lots

7. And when Dense Pense droned on about the virtues of His Orangeness, he'd say:

'Translated from the original North Korean.'

8. I love how droll and dry his little adlibs are.

He’s got a great sense of humor. Dry as a bone!

9. I come from a family where my Dad and all my uncles had that very dry sense of humor

It took a long time for Williams to shake off his past "scandal," but I think he has and is now one of my very favorites to watch or listen to via podcast. He's always had an intensely professional style, but the liberation that came with his later night show on MSNBC has been a true silver lining for all of us.

11. I agree! If I miss his first run of the evening, I'll stay up for the rerun.

I watch too much news and those who yell their script are beginning to irritate me. His voice relaxes me at the end of the day and his dry humor brings a smile.

15. Agreed

he still has that newscaster persona like a Brokaw or Rather -- but then he throws the snark....

16. Maybe just me, but Brian Williams rubs me the wrong way

He's by turns snarky, pedantic and smarmy.
