It's pretty bad when your ratings are too low even for MSNBC.

Well I don't like the Abrams report either. He tries to clone O'Reilly too much and it is painfully obvious.

Maybe this particular show is just the wrong vehicle for Pat "Raus, Juden! Raus!" Buchanan.

Maybe something more along the lines of -- and I'm just blue skying here, is all -- a remake of Hogan's Heroes. With Pat reprising the Sgt. Schultz role. :)

I don't know why we automatically think it's Pat's star who is dimming. Bill Press is certifiably a relic, an old, out of touch California relic at that.

MSNBC has obviously decided that democrat debates and predictable political pukes talking over each other and repeating themselves ad nausum, is not getting the ratings. MSNBC obviously wants to concentrate on sex and murder trials. I think they're smart to put Abrams up against Brit.

Pat's dropped from being a cancer in the body of Conservatism to a painful but largely irrelevant puss-filled boil on the rear end of Conservatism.

It's disasterous. I can't stomach either one of them.

Too bad.Mr Buchanan has great vision and is in tune with the maladies that plague the U.S.Immigration,entitlements,foreign entanglements and the unexplicable suicidal rush to the bottom.A great thinker IMHO.

Press I hate, but I tried to be 'kind.' If you know, haven't the desperate folks at PMSNBC hired Jesse Ventura? Mu husband said he saw the idiot while channel surfing the other day.

I know -- hard to believe that maybe 15 years ago he was one of ours. Of the four famous Buchanans I can think of -- Pat, Edgar, James and Buck -- I think Pat comes in a distant fourth.

Pat had no competion from Press, who is just another sidekick like Colmes is for Hannity.

Now if they could match Pat up with Kristol, Limbacher or any Muslim, they would have a winning show. But the the only thing the neocons know, is how to harp and smear.

Pat is intellect that's hard to match.

slightly different take here...MSNBC wants to be a hard news station..not a talk news station..they going after CNN, they know they can't beat FOX..that's why Dennis Miller's new show, which will be hot, IMHO, is going on CNBC, opposite Hannity...

Too bad Pat didn't lose his job to some Pakistani making $2.50 an hour. That would've really set him off.

Pat Buchanan is an anti-semetic thug who gives Christians a bad name and does Conservatives no favors.

I used to be a Perotista and joined the Reform party.
Buchanan drove THAT little effort right into the ground.

Pat was best when he was a rabid attack dog, (Crossfire) always trying take a piece out of some demonrats behind. Once he started going after his own side, it was all downhill.

"Both men will continue to be contributors to MSNBC, said Erik Sorenson, the network's president. "

In other words, they have to pay them their full salaries anyway.

Pat's star continues to dim.

Agreed....his light is just about OUT!

He was right about IMMIGRATION though.

"I just spent a few minutes listening to Pat defend Michael Jackson. (I am NOT making this up.)"

Surely you aren't serious! Personally, I am sick of Patrick Buchanan...seems like more often than not, he agrees with Eleanor [Rodham] Clift on the McLaughlin Report.

Acutally Miller's going to be on CNBC, not MSNBC. (Why does NBC has TWO networks? Beats me.)

And Miller's new show will air at 9pm ET, right up against Hannity and Colmes. Ironically, Miller used to do weekly commentary for that show.
