Your character as character-witness

This seems rather bizarre:

Pat Buchanan, the MSNBC commentator who's no stranger to controversial statements, said today that he thinks Newt Gingrich went "too far" when he compared the developers behind the Cordoba House Muslim community center to Nazis. It's "absurd," said Buchanan. "There is no valid comparison there."

Now at first it appears that Buchanan is condemning Gingrich for his absurd and bigoted statements as unfair to the Cordoba House people...but then I remember that Pat is a bit of a Nazi-apologist. So maybe he's saying it's unfair to the Nazis?

Man, we're in Mondo Bizarro when Buchanan appears to be the voice of reason. Maybe he's just jealous of The Newt and Sarah Show.

Oh, and what the first commenter said. Verily.

Pat Buchanan protesting because he thought Gingrich was being "unfair to the Nazis" was my best guess too. But 幸福不是一切,人還有責任 is central to my point too. Also, and like such as.

Well, we should give Buchanan his due. He may be a totalitarian bigot, but he's not crazy like most of today's Republicans. Wait, what did I just type?

Yes, I'm sure Pat was sympathizing with the Nazis, not the community center. That's because his father died in a concentration camp during WWII -- he fell out of a guard tower.
