I forgot Pat Buchanan went to Georgetown
By now, Pat Buchanan vs. Rachel Maddow on Sonia Sotomayor's nomination to the Supreme Court is old news, but I've just gotten around to watching the clip (at the bottom of this page, or elsewhere on MSNBC's web site). Georgetown has many famous alumni, among them George Mitchell, Paul Tagliabue, and of course Bill Clinton. Why is it that I always forget Pat Buchanan went there too? I'm sure Pat's Georgetown experience in the late 1950s was vastly different from mine in the mid-1990s. For one thing, he would have had far fewer women and minority students to pass on his way to class.
