Pete Wehner on the Blasphemous Pat Buchanan

Far be it for me to judge these things, but Pete is a righteous Christian, especially when compared to Pat Buchanan, who might be in for a big surprise if he ever does meet Jesus (Hint: He'll be the Jewish dude with the stringy hair and the kipah, and quite possibly a guitar):

This is really all quite ugly. For Buchanan, a Catholic, to compare Demjanjuk to Jesus -- who, according to Christian belief, was deity, holy and without sin -- is strikingly offensive. So is his effort to revive the charge of blood libel. Rarely do you find such an obscene mix of blasphemy and bigotry, and all in less than 900 words.

William F. Buckley, Jr. did many great deeds on behalf of conservatism over the course of his life. Near the top of the list was when he said in 1991 that he found it "impossible to defend Pat Buchanan against the charge that what [Buchanan] did and said during the period under examination [the first Gulf War] amounted to anti-Semitism, whatever it was that drove him to say and do it.
