The late great Molly Ivins commented after Pat Buchanan's keynote address at the 1992 Republican National Convention that "it probably sounded better in the original German."
As people given thousands of hours of face time on cable news go, Buchanan was as vile as they come: A virulent homophobe, racist, anti-Semite and apologist for Hitler, who . . . um, was misunderstood and the U.S. should have fought on his side in The Big One.
And so I took some satisfaction when MSNBC dropped Buchanan on Thursday four months after suspending him following the publication of his latest book, Suicide of a Superpower, which contained scrumdiddlyumtious chapters titled “The End of White America” and “The Death of Christian America.”
As is typical of vile people like Buchanan, he denies that he loathes gays, Jews and blacks, and he was quick to denounce MSNBC, his employer for 10 years, as having bowed to us mean libruls.
