Rachel Maddow Corrects The Record On Pat Buchanan's Racist And Sexist Rants But She Fails To Understand The Real Problem
With that said, Maddow clearly missed the point about much of the anger and disappointment that her viewers were feeling after Buchanan's sideshow performance. You didn't need a college degree to know that Pat Buchanan was telling some wild-ass whoppers and making some XXL-sized, KKK-endorsed, racist ravings. Once that crap has been tossed out into the air, it's out there forever, correcting the lies doesn't change that fact.
The real problem is that a dude like Pat Buchanan is getting paid six figures plus to spew his white supremacist ideology on national television. The real problem is that Rachel Maddow felt that she needed this dude on her show in the first damn place. And I really didn't get the impression from Maddow's segment this evening that she will not avoid having Buchanan on her show in the future and that's a real damn problem for me.
