This Day and Age

Via The Corner, video of unrepentant racist Pat Buchanan:
In this day and age, if you are not called some names and you have been in journalism as long as I have, then you probably have not said anything very much worthwhile in my judgment…. What I am is a heretic to the conventional wisdom as it moves further and further left and you are more and more outside. I mean my views in that book many of them would not even have been controversial had they been written a while ago.
Pat's in his 70s so I imagine that "a while ago" is somewhat more elastic than The Lovely Daughter's definition.

Look out Pat! The National Review just fired a couple of racists in a completely sincere attempt to gather amulets. Will The Corner's commentariat weigh in?

It isn't called paleoconservatism for nothing.

The most famous person from my High school is Russ Feingold.

It's kind of sad.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

ummm, I don't mean to say that Russ is sad.

Just that it's sad that nobody more famous has come out of the high school.

I'M certainly not going to fill in one of those spots.

I have no idea if anyone famous, even in local terms, graduated from my high school. School spirit is a much less important thing here.

See, there's your problem, S_McG.

Not enough teen spirit.

Pretty sure there wasn't Teen Spirit in Canada when that song came out.

An amulet is a small amul, right?
