Pat Buchanan Promotes 9/11 'Truth'

Anyway, I’ll go back to the original question. Yes, I think this article is disqualifying. PJB should resign from any government position he holds, and should not be appointed to any in the future.

Being a bit less facetious, I think this pretty much disqualifies him from being taken seriously on anything, and I’ve got no problems seeing it used against him regularly. On the other hand, both personally and in my expectations of what will happen, I don’t expect the same outrage as there was against Jones. Buchanan is not in government, and that makes a real difference.

Also, at least at the moment, I find the ACORN scandals more interesting to follow, and would be more likely to get involved in trying to get rid of officials who have been involved with them. I guess I see Buchanan as a has-been, and just don’t generate the same level of scandal.

Apart from some kind of ideological bias, how on earth could anyone find the ACORN stuff either more relevant or more important— let alone more interesting?
You’ll probably also spin away PB’s prominence as ‘oh well it’s just the MSM making a big deal out of him’, while at the same time exaggerating ACORN’s role in everything since time began.

Not that ACORN isn’t crappy and problematic, but PB and people like him (and Beck and tea parties, et al) are indicative of some major systemic rot right now.
