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.



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
