Pat Buchanan Flips Out When Black Guest Calls Out His Racial Prejudice, Tells Her to "Shut Up" [VIDEO]

Last night on MSNBC's Live with Dan Abrams, guests Pat Buchanan, Rachel Maddow, and Keli Goff discussed the role of race in Barack Obama's presidential campaign. Buchanan suggested Obama is winning the black vote simply because he is black. Goff countered that Obama has won states that have small populations of African-Americans. As Goff spoke, Buchanan grew more agitated, ultimately lashing out. "Shut up for a second please!" Buchanan yelled.

"Pat, I've been on TV with you a million times," Maddow said to Buchanan. "I've never heard you tell anyone to shut up before. That was absolutely, completely ridiculous of you."
