Pat Buchanan is Deep Throat, maybe…

This from Talking Points Memo:

Have you ever seen Buchanan hide from a microphone? Of course not. If he’s such a Nixon loyalist why isn’t he rushing forth to deny it and even demanding Woodward do the same? Is Pat’s phone disconnected? Has everyone forgotten the address of his home over in McLean, Virginia? He hasn’t been able to return the calls yet? Please.

Pat Buchanan seems to be on everyone’s short list of Deep Throat candidates. No one knows for sure except “Woodstein.” And it appears likely that we’ll wait for Deep Throat’s death before they will tell. For me, the most compelling bit of evidence is the fact that no one has claimed to be Deep Throat despite the fame and fortune that would follow. Why not cash in? Right now the only credible answer seems to be that Deep Throat is someone trying to protect a profession and/or political position. Buchanan fits that description.
