Why does MSNBC keep Pat Buchanan?
No one listens or cares about what Pat has to say. He is loud, always wrong, and has an annoying voice. Every time he gets on the air I change the channel because he never has anything new to say and he drives me up the wall.

If MSNBC is going to keep Pat Buchanan, then I think they should bring on someone that is equal to him on the left. My thought, Ralph Nader. Ralph is old, loud, and outspoken. The main difference between Nader and Buchanan is that Nader is almost always right.

1. Pat is a crazy SOB who is wrong 99% of the time
But there are always a few random gems that he makes sense. He was on MSNBC ratting our McCain's campaign when they flew to Georgia to offer American implicit backing for Micha to start a war with Russia. I don't know who lit that fire, but he was going on for about 10 minutes throwing Randy Schuunamen and other McCain advisors under the bus

11. Actually as far as right wingers go Pat is comparatively sane.
Though I know it's not saying much.

17. Right-wingers and sane don't belong in the same sentence
and that LePen-defending racist can go and take a long walk on a short pier.

10. I thought it was because his high pitched whine
attracts lost dogs. MSNBC has a side-service in lost dog locating . . .

4. Originally he was RW Repub who opposed the Neocons
He was the only one on the air taking the Administration to task for being controlled by Neocons, but always gave GW a pass. Too dumb to understand maybe?

They couldn't find one of the great apes that would act out as idiotically or fling their feces as well.

7. Asshole Pat
Rachael M and Keith will always put Pat in his place. Joe S. and Pat B. are both assholes and love bossing the weaker media folks around... MSNBC should have been had someone on the opposing side to really fight those punks back.

8. Buchanan and Nader stumped the nation together against NAFTA
if they ever put those two side by side on national television

it would be the political equivalent of cold fusion

the networks are malign and iniquitous, not stupid

Buchanan is crazier than a shit house rat and every time I have to listen to that SOB I ask this question...

"Who gives a shit what Pat Buchanan thinks?"

it's a mystery

12. To show people how much better Rachel Maddow's ideas really are.
I'd much rather have Pat on MSNBC being challenged (and thus crushed) by Dr. Maddow than have your typical Republican assclown like David Frum who, being short on ideas and overflowing on vitriol, can't legitimately debate. As least Pat will honestly debate, even though he's wrong.

14. Repubs relate to his average IQ. Oh, and, also, because he's a media whore.
He'll say anything.

If TV were stocked with intelligent, reasonable, informed, ethical people, no repubs would watch.

And you'd have to call it PBS.
