Speaking of Hitler …

September 9, 2009

Pat Buchanan thinks he was misunderstood and a victim of those who stood up to his expansionism. Seriously.

Historian David Silbey has this to say:

Enough. This is the kind of horrendous drivel that would embarrass a crazy uncle spouting off at a family reunion as everyone stands by awkwardly and shuffles their feet. It is the historical equivalent of speaking in tongues: the syllables, accents, rhythms, and pauses of actual speech that, when actually heard, dissolve to gibberish. Buchanan strings together his events from the past in a coherent narrative; coherent but absolutely disconnected from reality. Somewhere in this world, a rabbit in a waistcoat is looking at his watch, muttering about lateness. Buchanan has no worries on that score; he is well down the hole already.

    I’ve noticed that former Nixon staffers seem to have difficulty with thinking. Besides Buchanan, G. Gordon Liddy and Ben Stein come to mind as being especially thinking-impaired.
