Just when you think the Far Right can't get any crazier, here's Pat Buchanan on the Rev. Wright imbrolgia:
First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.Shorter Pat Buchanan: So slavery was really a good thing, because it got you here.
Kind of hard on the generations that actually lived as slaves, though, don't you think?
