I'm sure Pat will be the first to remind you he's Irish.

�We all know how well they were treated back in the 19th century.

�Calling them "white" would have been considered a stretch for some in polite company.

�Can you say "NINA", sure you can! �Before the Civil War, the Irish were famous for taking dangerous low paying jobs in the nascent railroad construction industry.

�At least in the East.

�A funny thing happened to these Irish lads as they moved West.

�They started to dress differently.

�The new clothes made them look less like overgrown leprechauns and more like Chinamen.

�If I didn't know any better, I swear they actually were Chinese.

�Rumor has it a lot of folks thought these railroad workers were Chinese, too.

�Maybe it was the clothes, or maybe cowboys didn't know what Irish people looked like.

�For some odd reason, maybe to avoid the NINA signs, the lads actually took to claiming they were Chinamen.

�I guess their luck at finding jobs using this strategy is where the phrase "a Chinaman's chance" comes from.

�Remind me to ask Pat next time he's around.You may find that hard to believe, but there's historical evidence to support that claim.

�Actually, the lack of evidence is what supports the claim.

�I checked the census data.

�It turns out census records from the 60s don't show any Chinese living in America.

�Of course, the census didn't report any Indians either.

�Chinese and Indians were not added as separate ethnic categories to the census until 1870.

�Prior to that the only racial categories were White, Negro and Mulatto.

�In light of that historical revelation, maybe I'm being too hard on Uncle Pat.

�Maybe he simply mispoke.

�When he said "1960" maybe he really meant 1860.

� After all, the years before the Civil War began hold a special place in his heart, just like it does for many of his fellow travelers.

�I'm sure Pat looks back at the antebellum South with fondness as a time when the natural order of things was still respected and people knew their place.

�To paraphrase Ronald Reagan's eye-popping comment from his debate with Jimmy Carter, Pat longs for:the days when I was young and when this country didn't even know it had a racial problem.

� As Carter noted in his response: Those who suffered from discrimination because of race or sex certainly knew we had a racial problem.

Of course Carter's mistake was to rely on logic in responding to that dog whistle.

�We all know that for people like Pat those people don't count...

so why count them? �You can't fault Republicans for going with the prevailing policy of the day, even if it a bit out of date.It's kind of quaint when people rewrite history to seek refuge in simpler times.

�Of course it's a little less quaint when they pick times they actually lived through, then it comes across as nutty.

�Like a lot of the people he appeals to, Pat lived through WWII.

�He would have been seven years old when it ended.

�Even a cloistered kid would have noticed something odd was going on.

� Some kids would have been in the thick of it.

�You know, kids like former Bush Secretary of Transportation, Norman Mineta.

�This may come as a surprise to Pat, but when the government took away little Norm's baseball bat and stuck him in an internment camp, he was a Boy Scout.

�That's right.

�I'd love to hear Pat explain how a die-hard baseball fan and Boy Scout born in this country isn't part of �our nation.

� �You know who else would be interested in hearing that? Michelle Malkin.

�She is gonna be facinated to learn who the hell we really stuck in those internment camps.

�She wrote a book based on the premise they were Japanese.

�If Buchanan is right, she's going to need to rewrite her apologia justifying why it was a good thing Roosevelt took swift action to protect Real Americans from those inscrutible slant-eyed bastards.

�Boy, is she gonna be angry.

�Trust me, you don't want to see her when she gets angry.

� � �!
