IS PAT ROBERTSON MOONLIGHTING AS DON CORLEONE?
It sure seems that way.
First, the true Christians are still trying to clean up the mess Robertson created when he suggested that the United States "take out" Hugo Chavez, the Venezualian President.
Next, when it's reported he's sanctioning assassinations of Foreign leaders, he goes on his own show, the "700 Club" and insists that's not what he said. Sorry, but that clip got played on the Daily Show so much, those segments are enough to guarantee Jon Stewart another Emmy award. Plus he showed the good Rev. Robertson to be directly in violation of God's order to NOT TELL LIES.
Or bear false witness against your neighbor. As in, "Saddam gave money to Chavez..."
So, it shouldn't come as a surprise that he's threatening GOP Senators if they vote not to confirm, or to confirm Harriet Miers to SCOTUS. First, he's a hit man; now he's Don Corleone.
I'm beginning to think it's time for the "700 Club" to seriously discuss asking Robertson to stand down as a pastor and as a public figure. He's already discredited himself as a religious leader when he ran for President. He takes discrediting what Jesus represents to a whole 'nother level, with his talk about assassinating foreign leaders and whatnot.
Now this. Head over to Kos' place and if you see Driftglass in the house, ask him to pour you a cold one, because you will need it to keep from losing your sanity in an Orwellian type world...
