This is his best McKayla Maroney

Yesterday we were fascinated by a column that longtime punchline Pat Buchanan wrote for Town Hall in which he asked fellow “paleoconservatives” whether self-elected pseudo-Communist op-ed writer (and #1 Boyz II Men fan) Vladimir Putin was “one of us” because of how much he dislikes the gays.

Revolving Door: ‘NYT’s Shadid, MSNBC & Pat Buchanan, and More

Sad news to report (we have too much of that lately): The New York Times’ Anthony Shadid, a Pulitzer Prize winner covering events in Syria, died yesterday of an asthma attack. He was 43 years old. The Times has more detail.

Pat Buchanan and MSNBC have “parted ways.” Buchanan, a conservative political commentator, had been suspended for the past four months after the publication of his book Suicide of a Superpower, which many called racist, homophobic, and anti-Semitic. MSNBC president Phil Griffin said the book should not “be part of the national dialogue.” Buchanan says it’s a win for blacklisters. He’s also said this.

Crazy news to report (we’ve had a little of that as well): Nancy Grace went on Good Morning America this week in a wrong-headed attempt to defend her implications earlier this week that Whitney Houston’s death wasn’t an accident. Despite Dan Abrams’ voice of reason, Grace refused to see the error of her ways. [via TVNewser]
