WaPo has this priceless quote from Pat Robertson:

“He started off playing a chauffeur in ‘Driving Miss Daisy,’ and then they elevated him to head of the CIA, and then they elevated him to president and in his last role they made him God. I just wonder, isn’t Rush Limbaugh right to question the fact, is he that good an actor or not?”

— Pat Robertson on his “700 Club” television show, using the example of black actor Morgan Freeman to defend Limbaugh’s jab at Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb.

    Jesus wept.

    I don’t get it.

  4. Leo says:

    Hmm, I rather think he is, actually.


  5. Matthew says:

    Every time Pat Robertson opens his mouth, God kills a kitten.

    (Sorry, it was the first thing that came to mind.)

  6. Good grief. It’s almost impossible to convince people that Robertson and his ilk don’t speak for all Christians — and comments like this one make it that much harder.

    Thanks, Pat. Thanks a lot.
