Yeah, this will do it

Twitterers were aflame last evening with the prospect that Pat Buchanan had finally gone too far:

“Reverend Al, please don’t throw me into that briar patch.”

“Your boy, Barack Obama, caved in… “

“He’s your boy in the ring!”

And it was the pure delight he put on uttering ‘briar patch’ and ‘boy’ that made it the whistle so fierce a pack of dobermans were seen outside the MSNBC studios (of course, that just may be Pat’s entourage).

But fret not, there’s no chance anyone like Pat Buchanan will ever be out of a job, that’s something “other” people experience.

There is nothing that Pat Buchanan can do to be fired, suspended, scolded, or even not complimented.

He has stuck up for Hitler; he has stuck up for death camp capos (comparing them to Jesus); he has stuck up for Jim Crow; he has stuck up for Apartheid; he’s even most recently stuck up for Nordic spree killers.  Yet the paychecks keep getting bigger.  How is this new race-baiting going to do him in?

Nope, he’ll always be there, in the Eichmann-like glass booth just kept outside the MSNBC studios ready to be set loose at all times of the day.  The Buchanity of Evil.

Take Heart



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 .
