Jamison Foser ponders, and not for the first time, the question…
What would Pat Buchanan have to say to get himself fired from MSNBC?
Nothing. The guy has been violating Godwin’s law for years. In his latest diatribe, Buchanan has declared war against Sonia Sotomayor with the oft-repeated and ridiculous declaration she is not intellectually bright. For example, Pat says he has never read a law review article she’s written. I’m pretty confident Pat Buchanan hasn’t read a law review article in about forty years.
And there appears to be a MSNBC contractual requirement that Pat not be called on his crap to his face too much, he maintains a rolodex of reverse discrimination claimants in his head that he spits out, but cannot make one specific factual charge against Sotomayor. The guy is allowed to bellow this unchallenged:
White people were 100% of the people who wrote the Constitution, 100% of the people who wrote the Declaration of Independence…This has been a country basically built by white folks..
Yes, because black people in bondage apparently only did stuff like build the American Capitol where white people could sing paeans to freedom and equality and eventually whine about how awful affirmative action is. The latter heard often from Bill Kristol, Jonah Goldberg, John Podhoretz, or Bay Buchanan.
Apparently, Pat only considers Sotomayor 3/5ths qualified to even be a citizen, hell listening to the interview, it appears by Pat’s reckoning Hispanics did not exist in America until the sixties. But that’s close enough for punditry.
