Sally Quinn wanted to bond with Tim Russert at his funeral?

You might remember this:

In Washington, That Letdown Feeling

By Sally Quinn

Washington Post Staff Writer

Monday, November 2, 1998; Page E01

…”He came in here and he trashed the place,” says Washington Post columnist David Broder, “and it’s not his place….”

And this:

the (not so) mighty Quinn

…Actually, it could be said that Sally Quinn has been floundering around for the last couple of decades, when she failed first as a journalist, then as a novelist, before emerging as a hostess in a Washington society that even she admits is in its death throes. Which brings us to a central question: Who appointed Quinn as the mouthpiece for the permanent Washington establishment, if there is such an animal? A peek into Quinn’s motives reveals a hidden political agenda and the venom of a hostess scorned, and ultimately, an aging semi-journalist propped up by a cadre of media buddies, carping at the Clintons because they wouldn’t kiss her ring…

That was then, this is now.

Apparently Sally Quinn, a non-Catholic, reported that she took Communion at Tim Russert’s funeral. A Catholic religious service.

Apparently a few people aren’t too happy about that.


…People who take their worship seriously don’t care for that. She went to their church and trashed the place. And it’s not her place.

We are not worthy.

I’m beginning to believe in karma.
