If Helen Thomas, Then Why Not Pat Buchanan?

Let Helen Thomas go; she earned her unemployment. But let's not ignore Pat Buchanan, who has been able to successfully launder his racism through CNN, MSNBC, and as a syndicated columnist for decades.

Please, someone, anyone, stop Mika Brzezinski before she kills journalistic integrity again. Ms. Brzezinski if you're reading this, I'm begging you, just google "false equivalency" and read some of the commentaries on the various blogs that pop up.

Elena Kagan, Pat Buchanan, MSNBC and Me

Pat Buchanan's most recent comments about Elena Kagan, who is Jewish, have prompted me to finally ask: why is a major network continuing to provide a paying platform for someone engaged in hate speech?

Religion, Bigotry, and Political Hypocrisy

Put aside the crazy "Obama's a Muslim" idiocy -- assume John McCain had won the presidency instead. Do you really think the Senate would confirm a Muslim candidate right now, even a conservative right-wing one? I don't.

Pat Buchanan: Too Many Jews On The Supreme Court [UPDATE] | Jason Linkins | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics

Pat Buchanan has counted up the Jews on the Supreme Court and has discovered that there is just not enough Protestantism on the Supreme Court, thus continuing America's rich tradition of only letting Protestants do just about everything else in American society. "If Kagan is confirmed," said Buchanan, "Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats. Is this the Democrats' idea of diversity?" This is a crushing blow to the American Jesus.

The Populist Insurgency and Foreign Policy: Why Non-Interventionists are Marginalized?

The White House's decision to pursue a Bush/neoconservative-Lite foreign policy makes it difficult for them to try to exploit populist sentiments by trying to project a less interventionist foreign policy.

If recent polling is any indication, people don't want to be associated with the party that elevates the self-satirical wackaloons. Especially when they refuse to be honest about who they are.

In the U.S. any child can grow up to become president. But with our new 24/7 cable/Internet news culture, it's more fun to explain why you're not running for President.

Pat Buchanan's Disagrees With 'Obama Is The New Nixon' Comparisons | Jason Linkins | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media

Pat Buchanan, who was a close confidant of Nixon, recently scoffed at the idea that the Obama White House is comparable to Nixon, calling it "idiotic," because, duh, Nixon was a historically unlovable bastard-creature, who left trails of foul-smelling ichor all over the Oval Office, like a slug. And no one liked Nixon, except for the "Perotistas, and what you might call the tea-party folk" who loved him immensely. Irony!

Palin Is Nixon, Minus The Smarts

Sarah Palin's rhetoric against the East and West Coast elites, and liberal media, appeals to aggrieved "ordinary Americans", in her phrase. Sounds like "the silent majority." Is this Nixon redux?

It was almost jarring to hear Rush whine about "tyranny" on the left, when it was his compadres on the right who just said no, and rejected Limbaugh's bid to buy the St. Louis Rams.

Palin's anti-elite style embodied a particular form of nationalism that abjured both elites and the "undeserving" poor. It is precisely this nationalism that animates Tea Partiers today.

World conquest was a pipe dream for Hitler, but Buchanan's whitewashing is an unconscionable distortion of the truth. Why did Hitler invade Poland? Easy. Because it was there.
