Chris Matthews decided to have a discussion on Rush Limbaugh's racist rants on his radio show, so who better to bring in to talk about it than their resident racist at MSNBC, Pat Buchanan? So Eugene Robinson got to suffer through not only being asked to listen to and respond to Limbaugh's racist crap but Buchanan's defense of him as well.

Robinson is correct of course. Limbaugh cares about one thing, lining his pockets and probably doesn't even believe half of what comes out of his own mouth but knows he's got to keep amping up the hateful rhetoric to keep his ditto-head listeners coming back.

MSBNC needs to put Buchanan out to pasture. Matthews could have just as easily shown a string of the racist remarks he's talked about on the air and written about in his columns. He's no better than Limgaugh. Media Matters has the run down on Limbaugh's clap-trap they played during the segment.

Limbaugh: "We have a president and a regime who are interested in payback," we have elected an "America-hater"

Limbaugh: Obama "wouldn't have been voted president if he weren't black"

Limbaugh: "We are now governed by people who do not like the country"; "our greatest threat ... is internal"

Limbaugh: Obama "wants to create an illegal alien bill of rights," "always wants to expand" rights of terrorists, spies

Limbaugh: Obama is "the first president in history -- to my knowledge, anyway -- who actually wants his nation to fail"

Limbaugh: President Obama packing Supreme Court to repeal the Constitution

Limbaugh: Freedom evaporating "right in front of our eyes," Obama "loves punishing this country"
