True Colors.

Pat Buchanan and Chuck Colson of Nixon administration infamy were conferenced in with Matt Lauer on Today today, to comment on the self-outing of Deep Throat. In case you think presidential candidacy and TV punditry had balanced Buchanan or evangelical salvation had mellowed Colson, this was a rare opportunity to see them out themselves as unregenerate Watergate loyalists. Both denounced Mark Felt as a traitor to the FBI's code of "respecting confidences." Respecting confidences in the name of covering up felonies committed by the President and his men? This position of Messrs. Buchanan and Colson deserves the widest distribution possible. It's good to know.
