The ever-racist Pat Buchanan outdid himself last night while debating Rachel Maddow on affirmative action, Sonia Sotomayor and why we don't need no brown-skinned people here, thanks. In response to Maddow's note that 108 of 110 Supreme Court judges have been white:
“White men were 100% of the people that wrote the
Constitution, 100% of the people that signed the Declaration of
Independence, 100% of the people who died at Gettysburg and Vicksburg...This has been a country built basically by white folks."
