In the bucket o' crazy, the largest piece is Pat Buchanan

Sure, he gets competition from Beck and O'Reilly and the gang at Fox, but Pat's been around a lot longer, so when he goes off the deep end, he really makes it a rollicking good time.

Did Hitler Want War?

You can go read his bit of lunacy for a few laughs, a few tears, and a wee bit of searing pain mixed in for good measure. Essentially, he's arguing (I think) that Hitler didn't want war, and it was Britain getting involved in a minor border skirmish that really wasn't even a concern to Poland that lead to World War II. Some of the commenters are especially loony. That group clearly thinks the six million Jews let themselves be murdered in death camps just to set the rest of the world up for a major guilt trip, in order to further the international Zionist conspiracy. According to Buchanan, as far as I can tell, tens of millions of people died for no good reason in that war, and it's certainly not Hitler's fault.

He wrote a book about it. I guess it didn't sell very well, so he's repackaging his column to drum up sales.

Pat reminds me of the Kissinger character in Dr. Strangelove whose arm goes up in a Hitler salute whenever the President asks his counsel, or slips up and calls the President 'Mein Fuehrer'.

Pat's been called a nativist; isn't that like a neo-Nazi?
