Robertson finds another shark, jumps it

Sure, televangelist Pat Robertson today said he was sorry for that whole "suggesting the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez" thing, but where was his demand for an apology from the liberal media? After all, only the most biased reporter could misconstrue his innocent statement Monday -- "If [Chavez] thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think we really ought to go ahead and do it" -- as a call for killing a foreign leader.

As Robertson noted today, The Associated Press completely ignored the context; he merely said U.S. forces should "take [Chavez] out." And hey, that could include anything from kidnapping to a romantic candlelight dinner. Maybe both. But even if Chavez insists upon ordering the lobster, no price is too high to prevent "Muslim extremism" from taking hold, even in countries where 98 percent of citizens are Catholic or Protestant.

Regardless, now that this whole Chavez ugliness is behind him, we can join Robertson in returning our attention to the activist judge crisis that threatens to consume everything we hold dear. In the long term, of course, we need to build a missile defense system to protect Florida from homosexual-induced meteor strikes, but we should be fine as long as God's chosen president is in charge.
