Pat Robertson: Still Relevant and Medically Alive

Tee-vee's Pat Robertson is unwilling to let his mental faculties melt away quietly, but with today's glut of unhinged far-right screeching, how does a black-souled dotard rise above the din?

Wander onto the set of the 700 Club (now conveniently adjacent to the room where a team of cosmetologists, dermatologists, and embalmers keeps him looking almost life-like) and start yammering about Haiti, that's how!

I'll go this far along with Pat Robertson's easygoing misanthropy: supposing there is a devil, I would take Pat Robertson as an authority on its dealings, past and present.

With all due charity to the tee-vee-famous preacher, nothing flits through the headlines that he cannot pull down, pluck clean, and shove through the grinder of the the bits of Biblical lore he still thinks he remembers. For that matter, calmly explaining Haiti's pact with Satan while its people bleed in the rubble is probably milder than what he kept repeating during rehearsals.

Aging with dignity and decency, thy name is Pat Robertson.

You know how they came up with the name "700 Club?"

They rounded up from 666.

Did you see the Haitian Ambassador's reply, on Maddow? It broke my heart.

Lets pray for preacher Pat Robertson So that he can come out from such mind.
We must pray for Haitian So that they over such a massive disaster.

I love how he says, "True story!" Like that is a reason to believe him.
And he is so optimistic.
Thanks Pat.
