I wonder if God revealed to "President" Robertson who was going to win the presidential election in 1988, when Pat Robertson ran for president? Oh, he lost?
Pat Robertson has already put his money this time around on Rudi Giuliani. Does the revelation match the backing? Pat's not telling. I guess we'll have to wait and find out. My breath is so baited, I can't stand it.
"He told me some things about the election, but I'm not going to say, because some old man on "60 Minutes" would make fun of me, so I'm not going to tell you who the winner's going to be..."The ratings for Robertson's 700 Club show must be down a bit. "Stay tuned for our next show, where Pat will absolutely, positively, maybe tell you who God told him will win the next election!!!" Sounds like we all got stuck in a room with no door and have been forced to watch episodes of Lost--forever.
Does God actually speak to someone who advocates murder? MediaMatters reported in late 2005 that Robertson called for the assassination of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez. It doesn't matter how much you hate someone, advocating their murder disqualifies you to speak on any sort of religious grounds.
You know...there is an upside to Robertson's refusal to reveal of whom it was revealed to him would win the presidency. On election day, when the votes are all in and the controversy is over, he can (a) receive another revelation, or (b) exclaim "That's what God told me..back in January!!!"
And then we can make fun of him some more.
