In a brilliant segment, Rachel Maddow essentially destroys whatever credibility Pat Buchanan had left, running through a litany of falsehoods the Right Wing commentator had uttered in a previous debate on her show.

Buchanan had asserted that affirmative action was immoral because white men built America, and white people were being screwed out of jobs they were qualified for to make way for illiterate and under qualified minorities.

The best part of Maddow's posthumous rebuttal was her eloquent reminder that slave labor was essentially the engine of the U.S economy in its early years, and blacks literally built the White House. Via Matt Osborne:
