Rachel Maddow corrects Pat Buchanan's racist statements he made on her show last week. Classy as usual, she manages to do it without attacking Buchanan, but just pointing out the fact that he lies like a rug by debunking his B.S..lol.

Maddow: It's not cool to talk about guests after their segment is over. It's also not fair to re-litigate these arguments in the absence of one of the parties who participated in the argument, and I will not try to do that now. But what I do feel obliged to do is to correct some of the things that were said in the course of my argument with Pat that were stated as fact, that were not true. I feel an obligation just to correct the factual record as we would with anything else that was stated as fact on this show that was not true.

Rachel goes on to debunk Pat's statements about whether Sotomayor has ever written anything in terms of a law review article, how Sotomayor got on the Yale Law Review, that the United States was not "built by white folks", his statements about who died for the United States in combat, his statement that he was not in favor of affirmative action, when he himself promoted affirmative action for Catholics, that the United States track team in the Olympics is not "all black folks", and the Olympic hockey team is not all from Minnesota.
