Moonbats descend on Pat Robertson

Among the vast audience that tunes into the 700 Club on a daily basis is a small group of liberals who eagerly wait for conservative televangelist Pat Robertson to slip up. On the occasion that he makes an off-the-cuff comment that is seemingly at odds with his Christian faith, it is then plastered all over the newswires to show the world what a hypocrite he supposedly is. The latest controversy has to do with Robertson's on-air comments calling for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez:

"We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability," Robertson said Monday on the Christian Broadcast Network's "The 700 Club."

"We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator," he continued. "It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with."

Gasp! Where's my smelling salts. The only thing is, Robertson is right. We are at war and we need to deal with any potential hotspot before it becomes too hot for us to handle. But that's not what this story is about as far as the MSM is concerned. This story is about Pat and his professed Christianity ("what about 'Thou shalt not kill'? Hmmmmmmmmm?")

It is interesting how that commandment is tossed aside by the liberal press when it comes to abortion and euthanasia yet becomes all-important when it comes to the life of a terrorist-friendly thug dictator.
