I don’t give two shits what tim says, PB rocks! And just to prove that point…

Here is my new favorite old song by Nick Lowe:

All Men, All Men are liars their words aint worth no more than worn out tires.
Hey Girls, bring rusty pliers to pull this tooth, all men are liars and thats the truth.

My wife laughed and asked: what has America come to when Pat Buchanan is the most reasonable person in the room?

Anyway- I was reminded of Pat’s appearance on Ali-G. He does a great job answering questions about a different election but similiar issues (like BLT’s in Iraq)…
