Pat Robertson - Fountain of Insanity

Just when I thought nothing would peak my interest today to blog about. I was going to rant about the West Virginia miners who were declared alive by the entire press corps only to be killed by them a few hours later. Its no different than the game "telephone" kids play. They just repeat whatever they hear so they can be first to say it. Whether its true or not is irrelevant. So while standing before cameras and unable to actually do any real reporting someone tells the cable talking heads that 12 miners were found alive and they repeat it. What if they were told Amelia Earhart was found in the cave? Would they just repeat it? What probably happened is that someone said 12 miners were found and someone else thought that meant 12 were found alive. Big difference. And papers coast-to-coast reported it right over the headline "Dewey Defeats Truman." The media is worthless. Stick to blogs. Preferably this one.

On to Pat Robertson who at this point I look at like watching Anthony Bourdain eat ant egg tamales, braised bat, lamb testicles or cobra hearts still beating -- I can't turn away from it but it makes me dry heave a bit. Robertson probably figured he hasn't gotten any national attention lately that would help his fundraising efforts so he has weighed in on the as yet to be confirmed although broken here story that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is dead. Robertson said that Sharon was struck down by God for dividing the land of Israel. "He was dividing God's land, Robertson said. "And I would say, Woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the E.U., the United Nations or the United States of America. God says, This land belongs to me. You better leave it alone." Doesn't sound too different from the Iranian President hoping for Sharon's death. Robertson has provided many blog rants here, here and here to cite a few.

There is so much land to plow here that I am considering a second blog site devoted exclusively to Pat Robertson's verbal diarrhea. He certainly pooped himself again today.

Yes, the Holy Spirit's message on the Christian Prophet blog specifically calls Pat Robertson "insane." To my way of seeing, the view of Christianity presented by The Holy Inheritance blog is far more reasonable.

It's amazing, when you listen to the words of the Christian fundamentalists and the Muslim fundamentalists, they sound alike.

What I find even more interesting is Robertson's quote that Sharon is "a very tenderhearted man and a good friend." With friends like these...

I think I'll go have another beer.

I'm still laughing Crankboy...

As I've said before: this guy would be a urine soaked barker on a college campus somewhere if he wasn't rich.

And he got rich by stealing from the poor and investing the money with inhuman African tyrants.

He's not insane, he's the Devil.
