Pat Robertson Please Shut Up

This guy just needs to give it a rest. God would seem to have enough on his mind without giving Sharon a stroke to punish him.

Update: Richard Scott Nokes at Unlocked Wordhoard warns -- in "reluctant defense of Pat Robertson" -- that what Pat Robertson actually said may have been misinterpreted. I haven't seen a transcript or heard audio of Robertson's remarks, but I wanted to pass along that caveat from a smart and reliable source. Whether Robertson's words in this instance have been unfairly misconstrued, I think we can all appreciate the wisdom of Horace Jeffery Hodges' observation in the comments: "Pat Robertson is God's way of reminding us that Jerry Falwell is sane."

Update II: Scrappleface has more.

The New York Times reported today that two left-leaning Washington organizations, People for the American Way and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, each have a staffer who monitors Pat Robertson's show every day. They alert the media when he says something outrageous.

Maybe I'm just out of it, but is Pat Robertson still such a big influence among the "religious right" that it's worthwhile for his opposition to monitor him? For years now, I've assumed he was pretty much a has-been.

Interesting story, Jeff. I wonder the same thing you do about Pat Robertson. My impression has been that he's not that influential except for a fairly small faction of the religious right. But doesn't his organization still make a lot of money?

Anyway, I'll remember that story the next time a "liberal" howls about Michael Moore being portrayed as the face of the Democratic party.
