he’s a traditional conservative. He thinks that the GOP has shifted from its original values. Had the nerve to quit the party. Doing this, he knew he would never have any chance to win a Presidential election.
(Buchanan doesn’t stand a snowballs-chance-in-Hell of being elected ANYTHING in 2008, but if…through some horrible fracturing of the Cosmic Whatsits…he were to become president, his first action in office would be to pat George W. Bush on the back, vigorously shake his hand and tell him “Well done, great job!”
Such thoughts should make any sane, rational person want to run to the nearest toilet.)
He also DEFENDED Congressman Foley (that’s the one who was sending homo-erotic E-mails to under-age teenage boys. One wonders if he would have eagerly defended President Clinton if all HE had been doing was sending erotic E-mails to Monica Lewinsky)
Some of his more “wholesome” activities have been: Praising and defending Richard Nixon; Worrying incessantly about “cultural pollution” while scoffing at actual pollution such as smog and chemicals dumped into our drinking water; Waging war against Political Correctness; Believing wholeheartedly that our children should be taught lies and myths in their history classes and creationism in their science classes; Bashing-and-smashing homosexuals, AIDS patients, unwed mothers and rock’ musicians (and happily claiming resposiblity while AT THE SAME TIME denying these actions…and praising anyone else who also does the same); Butting into other peoples affairs; Revelling in the fact that he’s anti-semitic; Treating women like chatel slaves; Verbally attacking anyone-and-anyone who is wealthier, healthier, or happier than he is; Utterly against Martin Luther King Day; And just being the sort of anal-retentive person that gives Conservatives a bad name.
