In the backwater of right wing madness, barely visible beyond the glow of truly insane blogs and the current wingnut heroes, National Review plugs along, probably making poor old Bill Buckley roll over in his grave several times a week (he was brilliant but wrong and certainly would not be part of the dumb-down movement which the GOP has parlayed into a non-mandate for 2011-12). Lo and behold, one of the abominations he helped unleash on the world, the Great Hater, still writes for NR. And here I thought Pat Buchanan had been relegated solely to the roll of the Crazy Old (and dangerous, but never mind that, he’s Irish Catholic) Uncle in the Attic at MSNBC, or as I like to call them, Fox Left.
Good Ol’ Pat, Nixon’s primary thug until even nuttier guys like G. Gordon Liddy came along, reveals the true nuttiness and disdain for American verities which lies in his black heart; it is something which is is evident to anyone paying attention to what he says and the crazy light in his eyes as Chris Matthews fawns over him on the tube:
Remarkable. The least respected of American institutions, Congress, with an approval rating of 13 percent, is imposing its cultural and moral values on the most respected of American institutions, the U.S. military.
Quite simply, Pat thinks that the authority of a civilian government over the military is an abhorrence. Why does he hate America so? You really should go read the whole thing. And definitely the Comments which follow.
