  •  Pat has been this way for 40 years at least (5+ / 0-)

    I was convinced he had some magical "Whacko Bigot Pass" that allowed him to get away with it for all this time. Because it is not like these views on Pat's part are anything new; he was openly admiring Hitler and the Nazis back in the 1980s in the pages of the Washington Freaking Post. For some reason he has been allowed to be a part of the mainstream media lo these many decades despite consistently being a racist, isolationist loon.

    I sort of thought MSNBC (and especially Rachel Maddow) used to bring him on in a "look, see, there are people who really do think like this" sort of capacity, but even in that utility he is long, long past his expiration date.

    I support torturous regimes! Also, I kick puppies.

    •  Oh, I think he's got more seniority than that (1+ / 0-)

      Unlike some of the about-face neocons, Mista B never had a librul period.  As a paleoconservative, he was red-baiting on the editorial pages of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat when he was 23 and quite proud that his ancestors had fought for the secessionist slave-owners in the 1860s.  His reign may well date from 1938 - November 2, to be exact.
