robertson, robertson, and norquist

Robertson on Sharon
Really, it's almost too easy to make fun of Pat Robertson for saying stupid stuff. He's done it again, suggesting that Israel PM Sharon's stroke was divine intervention because God didn't like it that Sharon was going to divide "God's land."

When Pat Robertson dies, as he surely must, how shall we assess his death? Whatever it is, I'll say it's God judgement against Robertson for being so quick to judge others...

Robertson on Alito
Meanwhile, Robertson says God told him Samuel Alito would be confirmed, and a liberal justice would retire this year. What's with that moron who will "consecrate Room 216 Hart" where the Alito hearings will take place? Will Jews or atheists go up in smoke when they enter the room? I guess the Senate has exempted itself from any restrictions on the separation of church and state.

Norquist on Abramoff
Back in 1995, Reagan worshipper Grover "Drown the Government in a Bathtub" Norquist (about whom I can't say enough unpleasant things) said to the National Journal about his former partner in crime with the Young Republicans: "What the Republicans need is 50 Jack Abramoffs. Then this becomes a different town." As E.J. Dionne wrote, "Norquist got his different town. It's why the place so badly needs cleaning up."
