god spoke to pat robertson and....

 

 

It appears that god spoke to mr. robertson again.. and this time to tell him who the next president will be.

The "I think" and "I'm not supposed to talk about it" quotes from him really are convincing.

What a douche.

This is one person I feel no compassion for; he's a complete waste of space.

It amazes me that people take Pat Robertson seriously.  It's more like "I have an opinion about who is going to be the next president based on what I've heard them say, what I know about the American people, and what I believe; and I'm telling you that God told me, so you have to believe me."

It annoys me when people use God as an argument clincher.  Then all of a sudden you have dozens of people running around saying they all had a revelation from God -- and nobody can make rational sense of it.

By the way, Stephen Colbert made a great coverage of that Robertson clip: http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/405275/january-05-2012/god-s-message-to-pat-robertson

The Young Turks also covered this Pat Robertson clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBrX5sFMedw  I hope Robertson at least tells us his prediction before it gets too obvious who's going to win.  I don't think even Pat Robertson is foolish enough to wait until after the election to say, "Yup.  That's who God told me would win."
