I'm Just A Pat-sy!
It seems one of our favorite reverends, Pat Robertson, has once again put his foot in his mouth. On Monday night, the Christian Coalition founder called for the assassination of the president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez. Regardless of how you may feel personally about Chavez, it just seems to me that calling for the assassination of a foreign leader is not WJWD (What Jesus Would Do)...or maybe it is, hell I don't know. Regardless, having a religious leader calling for the assassination of a president just sounds rather Al Quaida-ish, don't you think? (Another tie-in to my previous article "What's the Difference" located below this one.)
Today, Patsy boy tried defending himself by further sticking his foot in his mouth. "I didn't say 'assassination', I said our special forces should go 'take him out,' and 'take him out' could be a number of things, including kidnapping...I was misinterpreted by the AP, but that happens all the time."
Well, first off, I think anyone with any sense at all would have taken your comments of 'take him out' to mean 'Kill.' I sure as hell did. Don't blame the AP for your poor choice of words (if those were the words you had used.)
Second, you did call for his assassination. I know you are getting older in your age, and because of that, your memory may be sliding a bit...but c'mon, surely you remember your words from two days ago...right? If not, here they are: "If he thinks we are trying to assassinate him, we should go ahead and do it..."
I thought lying was a sin in your book Pat-sy boy...guess I'll see ya in hell!
