Farewell and Bite Me, Pat Buchanan

This might be the best decision MSNBC has made since hiring Rachel Maddow and Melissa Harris-Perry.

MSNBC dropped conservative commentator Pat Buchanan on Thursday, four months after suspending him following the publication of his latest book. The book “Suicide of a Superpower” contained chapters titled “The End of White America” and “The Death of Christian America.” Critics called the book racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic, charges Buchanan denied.

Who will be the first to snatch him up? CNN or Fox News? I predict CNN. Fox News people will likely think he's a double agent -- and now they can say "some folks are saying" because I just said it.
