Pat Buchanan: The White Man's Martin Luther King

You know, we've always liked Pat Buchanan. He reminds of of Uncle Andy. Uncle Andy was convinced there was a vast conspiracy of minorities that kept getting him fired. His favorite saying was "I went back down to (fill in last place he worked) and you know what? They hired a (fill in minority)!" We've removed the colorful Anglo-Saxon expletives and southern slang references to ethnic heritage, but you get the picture. Aunt Tilly was more persuaded it was Uncle Andy's drinking that kept getting him fired, but you couldn't convince Uncle Andy of that. Not even when he was sober. Which wasn't too often.

So every time old Pat trundles himself out onto the sound stage at MSNBC to bemoan the fact that The Man is holding whitey back we think of Uncle Andy who went to his grave convinced a black dude had bumped him off the liver transplant list.

That's why we couldn't wait to read what Buchanan had to say about the nomination of Judge Sotomayor. We weren't disappointed.
Having lost the Congress in 2006 and the White House in 2008, Republicans are looking to redefine themselves for a nation that still leans conservative but is less Republican that it has been in decades.
Umm...Pat? Would that be this conservative leaning country? And is the reason the country is less republican because these folks are the only ones left?
No one has brought forth the slightest evidence she has the intellectual candlepower to sit on the Roberts court.
Well, except these guys. And these guys. Oh, and what about the guy who gave her a job in the first place?
Sotomayor got into Princeton, got her No. 1 ranking, was whisked into Yale Law School and made editor of the Yale Law Review -- all because she was a Hispanic woman.
Really? She didn't, like have to go to classes and take tests and write papers and stuff. What? Was she on the football team or something?
This is bigotry pure and simple. To salve their consciences for past societal sins, the Ivy League is deep into discrimination again, this time with white males as victims rather than as beneficiaries.
Hey, come on Pat. Columbia's not a bad school. Sure, it's no Yale, but then your daddy wasn't the president, was he?
One prefers the old bigotry. At least it was honest, and not, as Abraham Lincoln observed, adulterated "with the base alloy of hypocrisy."
No kidding. That hypocrisy is a lot of work, right Pat? What happened to the good old days when you rely on sunset laws to keep you safe at night? Now black folks and other non-whites can go anywhere they please, any time of day or night. The Founding Fathers must be twirling in their graves.
Republican senators should use this Sotomayor nomination to put affirmative action in the dock for what it is -- race-based bigotry against white males so that persons of color can receive the rewards of society that they could not win in free and fair competition.
Darn straight Pat. Why, if it wasn't for affirmative action we wouldn't have a black president right now. Well, affirmative action and 63 million votes.

Anything the republicans call the "Human Event" thing and has Anne Coulter peering visciously down at the littlest bit of intellectualism, it ain't going to look good let alone sound even better.
All you have to do is take a gander at Pat's sister . and you know where those genes all come from. A slight honk to the west of Mississippi and a whole lot of horse rein around Texas and in between.

People are in the "progressive camp" because they do see other countries performing better. A population ruled by the very few who gain the very most is not a country that lasts and lasts well. It's called, "corruption" at the very least. America has had a melt-down and a wake-up call. Let's hope it is not too late.

I was just surprised to get the part that Uncle Andy could read. Fuck that was amazing all by itself. I kept waiting read how some {fill in racial epithet} had vandalized all his books, and stole his homework.

I have absolutely nothing nice to say about Pat Buchanan. I have had a bad day and right now, he is the only minority keeping me down. The last of the WASPs. So I am going to drink to their assimilation.

As for "the Just because she is Hispanic" bullshit. I will add that it was also just because she is a woman--you know those things with vaginas--that normally only occupy the whore house or the kitchen PAT. Affirmative Action was what allowed me to get my job in the military, but it sure as hell didnt protect me from Sexual Harassment, which you buddy Pat Robertson went on television to say that THAT was all women's fault. Another minority just trying to keep Whitey Penis down. You see Ironicus, Whitey has a last name. Penis.

I am so sick of this bullshit. Really really sick of it. Its old. Its dumb and it's only purpose is to fuck this country up beyond all recognition. The only real conspiracy is the Council for National Policy. And by the way, they aint Jews or Blacks or Hispanic Split-tails. They are all WASPs too.

It has always been who you know and how much donation you can fork over to get into what you want, when you want.
I can think of a gadzillion kids who have no clue about Roman ruins, where Iceland is or even when women got the vote.
"Testing" is basically what you are worth, financially, politically, and socially, and of course, did "daddy" go here.
