Jeez.  Pat Buchanan isn't even trying to hide his ignorance and bigotry now.  Here he is from last night's Rachel Maddow show, in response to her point that 98% of all U.S. Supreme Court justices have been white men:

"White men were 100% of the people that wrote the Constitution, 100% of the people that signed the Declaration of Independence, 100% of the people who died at Gettysburg and Vicksburg, probably close to 100% of the people who died at Normandy. This has been a country built basically by white folks."

That's an interesting take on history — let's ignore the contributions of blacks to this country because they were slaves and subjects of discrimination.
