    Isn't Buchanan a Scottish name?

    •  He's an Irish mutt of sorts (0+ / 0-)

      It's possible the name is used in both places.  But while Buchanan does have some Scots ancestry, he's a Catholic and tends to talk more about the Irish side more (I didn't know about the Scott, German or English parts of his family until I looked it up).
