Pat Buchanan: The Conservative movement is "a racket."

Here's a direct quote from arch-conservative Pat Buchanan:

"Eric Hoffer, the longshoreman philosopher said 'Every great cause evolves into a business, and then it degenerates into a racket.' And that's what has happened to our movement -- the Conservative movement. It came with Goldwater; it was full of passion and ideas. It culminated in the Reagan White House and now it's everybody get it while you can and we're here, we're the power now and we're behaving now -- it's like Orwell's Animal Farm. You remember at the end? The pigs and the farmers were playing cards, wrestling on the floor. You couldn't tell one from the other. That's exactly what's happened to the Conservative movement."

You heard it here first. Unless you were watching The Situation with Tucker Carlson this evening.

... and tell 'em Big Mitch sent ya!"
