Much has been written about Pat Robertson’s latest bit of insanity, suggesting on the 700 Club that we should assassinate the president of Venezuela. The only thing I have to add is this: if this were a Muslim cleric rather than a Christian one advocating the murder of a head of state, he might well find himself in Gitmo. Especially since this same nutball just a few short months ago was saying that we should drop a bomb on the State Department. If he was Muslim, he’d be on a terrorist watch list by now at the very least, and quite possibly in custody. But he’s a Christian, and a loyal Republican, so we get weak statements from the government about how it’s “inappropriate” (State Department spokesman) and “private citizens say things all the time” (good ol’ Donald Rumsfeld).
