No one says that Buchanan is not bright and personable. He is, however, a bigot so far outside the American political mainstream that he should never have been given legitimacy by MSNBC in the first place.
In light of the recent blood libel manufactured against Sarah "Sarahleh Palinsky" Palin, I present the following video, made during the 2008 campaign, in which Jews communicate why they support Palin and consider her a member of the tribe.
As a Jewess, I think it's an absolute shandeh that so many schmucks are talking such drek about you, Sarah Palin. You have every right to make statements about us chosen people because you practically are a chosen person yourself.
When Obama's agenda began to peter out under the weight of Republican obstructionism and his own tendency to play it safe, it was the Democratic base that worked the hardest trying to prevent him from falling.
I don't really care if MSNBC decides to keep Buchanan on its roster. What MSNBC should not be allowed to get away with is passing him off as a respectable analyst rather than identifying him as its bigot in residence.
While the international community is busy excoriating Ahmadinejad for doubting whether 6 million Jews did in fact perish at the hands of the Third Reich, Buchanan's Web site is encouraging this very conversation.
