Years may come and years may go, but Pat Buchanan’s right-wing nutsery never changes. It was actually nostalgic for me to hear the old Nixon retainer and wistful supporter of white supremacy debating Spencer Ackerman on Morning Joe this morning and calling for “hostile interrogation” (aka torture) of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. The hell with mollycoddling people with liberal mush like civil rights and stuff like that. What does it matter that it happened on an American airliner in U.S. airspace? “We’re at war!”
It’s like it’s 2001 all over again.
