standing Pat

Today, the news networks are reporting that superstitious nutcase Pat Robertson has sent a letter of apology to Ariel Sharon's family, and by way of extension to Israel, for his recent public comments to the effect that Sharon had been stricken because he had contravened god's instructions to not divide the country. It is also being reported that he is asking forgiveness for his statements.

However, a simple and perfunctory reading of Pat's letter shows clearly that what the networks are reporting is, once again, not quite the reality.

Pat clearly apologizes.

Not for what he said.

He apologizes for WHEN he said it. He explains that it was "inappropriate" and "insensitive" for him to say these things at a time when Sharon was near death and his family distraught. He doesn't say a single thing about the content of what he said, and really just implies that he should have waited until later to admonish Sharon.

Pat, I hope that when something horrible happens to you or your loved ones that you realize it is your own god bitch-slapping you for your sins.

Pat Robertson is a wretched little man and an utter waste of DNA.

And, isn't there one single person in the traditional media that understands the English language any more?

at least the Israelis have wised up--they are no longer in communication with him.

He is a waste of air, as well as DNA.

And, no. Very few of the people who are supposedly trained in communications actually can.

My son wants to be a play-by-play announcer in football. I've told him that I'll be listening, and the grammar police never sleep!
