Nobody thinks right-wing blowhard Pat Buchanan is a softie. Yet even for Pat, his statement about Bristol Palin ex-fiance, Levi Johnson, is over-the-top.
For the record, we don't believe in murder. Even as a joke, suggesting the murder of a public person seems to be, well, ill-advised.
Yet good ole Pat can't help himself. Hate, prejudice, and violence—it's the Buchanan way. Here's what he said today on MSNBC's Morning Joe show:
BUCHANAN: “Well, first, with regard to Levi, I think First Dude up there in Alaska, Todd Palin, ought to take Levi down to the creek and hold his head underwater until the thrashing stops.“
