    I can't believe that he lasted as long as he did.

    Not terribly surprised. I tried to read the Book and I think he focused too much on race. Totally turned me off of it.

    Pat B is my favorite GOP oldie but goodie.

    Pat is completely out of step with the neo-cons.

    Among other reasons, because the still loves America.

    Mostly I disagree with his POV, but at least I believe his motives aren't evil.

    he was a regular on the network. i actually used to love when he'd go on rachel maddow's show. two really good minds actually debating.

    if you actually watched things like morning joe and maddow, you'd see that there are a LOT of people from the "other side"... fewer on maddow b/c they're afraid of her. joe scarborough's an easier play for the righties.

    It's disappointing MSNBC ousted him for his bigotted and racist viewpoints. While I never agreed with them..they were at least thoughtful. It's important to understand that viewpoint as well.

    Buchanan is a lot of things..but fool isn't one of them.

    He's a very savvy pundit. And he really knows the ins and outs of government.
