Deep Underground with Raul Groom

Uhh, WHAT?!?!

You would think it would be impossible for Pat Robertson to go off the deep end. But I give you this (thanks to Daily Howler; I don't read the Zahn transcripts):

"I just think God's blessing is on him. And you remember, I think the Chinese used to say, you know, it's the blessing of heaven on the emperor. And I think the blessing of heaven is on Bush. It's just the way it is."

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh............. Okay. The same blessings that were on the ancient Chinese emperors are on Bush. Hopefully the specific blessing that's on Bush is the same one that was bestowed upon the last Shang despot, who was overthrown by commoners in B.C.E. 1027, ushering in almost 300 years of tribal autonomy.

Pat Robertson's God is weird. He bestows blessings on Bush, but doesn't bother to tell him that there might be casualties in Iraq. Of course, I guess it's not as weird as the fact that God didn't tell the Chinese Emperors that they didn't need to have hundreds of slaves buried alive with them in order to make sure they had enough help in the afterlife.

Pat Robertson is not crazy, so stop saying that.
