and in other news

Pat Robertson is trying to clear the air a bit over his unfortunate comments about Venezuela's democratically elected leader, Hugo Chavez, claiming that his remarks were taken "out of context" and that he never, never even implied that Chavez should be murdered by United States operatives.

Gee, let's go to the record:

"If he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war. We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with."

Yep, clearly nothing to worry about here. Everybody knows that Pat didn't say Chavez should be killed, he said he should only be "taken out." Context is clearly everything.

Dinner and a movie, perhaps?

For that matter, why don't we "take out" Pat Robertson? Goodness knows he deserves it.
