Pat Buchanan really doesn't like it much when his opponents pin him down on his religious hypocrisy. Lawrence O'Donnell, on Hardball today, was admittedly relentless in trying to get Buchanan to fess up to complaining about Barack Obama speaking at Notre Dame while he had no problem with George W. Bush being there.

As O'Donnell points out repeatedly, the Catholic Church is every bit as opposed to the death penalty as it is abortion. And yet Pat -- who is fine with the death penalty -- thinks it's an outrage that Obama, who is adamantly pro-choice, is speaking at Notre Dame. Finally, Buchanan gets fed up and tells O'Donnell: "If you will shut up I will."

Pat thinks this is his winning argument:

Buchanan: Every unborn child is totally innocent. And in the United States, everybody who goes to execution is guilt of murdering someone, of taking innocent blood.

Um, not exactly.
