Hey Newt, When Pat Buchanan Thinks You’ve Gone Too Far……

Patrick J. Buchanan is no stranger to making outrageous statements. After all, this is the guy who thinks there just might be too many Jews on the Supreme Court, and who said in 2009 that World War II was caused by Poland’s refusal to give in to Nazi Germany’s demands for territory.

So, when Pat Buchanan reacted like this to Newt Gingrich’s comparison of the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque” to placing a Nazi Memorial outside the Holocaust Museum, it raised some eyebrows:

As usual, very Nixonian of Pat but when even he thinks you’ve gone to far, perhaps it’s time to take a step back.

    I suspect it’s not so much that Buchanan thinks that Gingrich went too far, but rather that only Buchanan is allowed to go that far.
