Pat Robertson joins the global warmenizers. They’re welcome to him.

    1. Robertson does have a habit of saying very stupid things see here

    1. Makes sense.  Robertson IS a major source of hot air.

    1. Dear Normal People of the World,

      Please don’t blame normal Americans for the likes of Robertson and his sickos ilk.

      Remember, you’ve got your own moonbats, too.  Feel our pain.

      Dont worry we have Bob Brown over here to atone for yet. (Greens politican that gets more airtime than the leader of the main opposition party)

    1. There are a few worrying conservative politicians in Australia, like Gaia worshipping Senator Ian Campbell.

      Just imagine – 52 wind turbines, having the calculated chance of injuring an orange bellied parrot (or was that a yellow-bellied sapsucker?) once every six hundred years!

      Now kiddies, gather around for Kaboom’s science lesson of the day.

      Wind turbines INCREASE global warming.  All of these bloody great fans cause atmospheric resistance, which slows the earth’s rotation.  Slower rotation means longer days.  Longer days means more sunlight.  More sunlight means it will be warmer.

      I think we should ban these environmental monstrosities, right now.

    1. I thought the Book of Warmen was a different belief system than Pat’s?

    1. One theory is that the political spectrum is really a circle, and if you go far enough right (or left), you begin to sound exactly like the other extreme.  This douchebag seems to be aiming to prove the concept.

    1. Okay, now the funny part will be watching the lefties’ eyes start to bleed as they try to embrace Pat Freaking Robertson into their fold…

    1. Hey Guys!

      Thanks for stopping by!  I had no idea Tim would just link me like that, but I sure do appreciate it.  I’m not sure what Pat is up to here, but I’m sure he found something in the Bible to justify it.  Maybe the icecaps melting don’t factor into his apocalypse, even though we know that the water won’t rise even if everything does melt up there.  Perhaps the flood is supposed to happen some other way.

      Thanks again guys!

      I think that the orange bellied parrot’s name was Joe. Things always are more pithy when you know something personally.

      Most people don’t know that wind farms do nought to decrease emmissions from power stations.

    1. The Economist has reported that Tony Blair and Arnie have joined forces on the global warming bandwagon:

      “Tony Blair visited California, where he signed an agreement with the state’s governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to collaborate on tackling global warming. Mr Schwarzenegger, a Republican, criticised the federal government for not taking strong action on the issue, a position that will do him no harm as he starts his re-election campaign.”

    1. #22 Quentin
      There are similarities. Both of them sought to be candidates for the presidency of the United States as Republicans at various times. Buchanan later actually ran for President as a Reform candidate.

      Robertson is pro-Israel; lots of pro-Israel pieces on his Christian TV program (at least for now – he’s been kind of erratic lately). Buchanan is no friend of Israel and thinks Israel has too much influence on US foreign policy.

    1. O/T but here is a charming article from the gaurdian online with the usual, “Its all the British Empires fault” theme.

    1. I refuse to toady up to stupid leftist anti-Christian, anti-American foreigners and “apologize” for Pat Robertson. Wacky as he is, he’s evidence of the good things about our country. There are too many places in the “enlightened” rest of the world where his religious antics would be neither amusing nor irritating: they’d be unfunny and dangerous. If he were an imam in Pakistan he wouldn’t be burbling about global warming, he’d be shrieking “Death to the Jews!” along with all the rest of them. Instead, he’s an American Christian teevee personality, and I don’t have to worry about his followers chasing me around with torches and axes because they saw me in the street without a burka.

    1. Andrea Harris, Administrator

      Most people dont dislike him for being Christian. Myself I remember back to the “good old days” of Jimmy Swaggert. Most Aussies probably have him in the back of their heads whenever American Evangelists are spoken of. That means 1 part pity for his followers and 2 parts comtempt for what many see as a snake oil salesman.
      Pat might be different but most of us will never see enough of him to know any different.
      And for the most part hes fairly harmless as you say.

      Heres a link for those who came in late,

    1. #18: Hilarious! Thanks for the link (btw, the article also refers to them as “guilt-free” pancakes).

      My wife makes delicious buttermilk pancakes from scratch, with bacon or sausage every Saturday morning. Covered in syrup, they are neither age-defying nor guilt-free; in fact, eating them is probably like screwing a cork into your aorta. But everything in moderation, as they say. Followed up with a tasita of Cuban coffee, it’s the breakfast of champions.

      I agree that Pat is more or less harmless. In a world filled with would-be caliphs calling for the literal destruction of Israel and the U.S., it would be absurd to posit moral equivalency between them and Pat Robertson. Which no one here has done, incidentally, although there are leftists who occasionally try to turn him into a true bogeyman from time to time.

    1. Andrea — You don’t read enough Andy Sullivan.  Robertson’s followers and the rest of the theocratic neocon fascists are indeed following you around with axes, working up the nerve to strike, or at least to lock you away in some undisclosed foreign prison where a Bush-pardoned Lynndie England will inconvenience you with trash bags and polaroids…

    1. I keep getting Pat Buchanan and Pat Robertson mixed up, for some reason.

      Oh, hell, that’s an easy fix:  one prays, the other wants to be worshipped.

    1. If Pat Robertson has jumped on the global warming global cooling climate change bandwagon, it only means he’s found a way to make a buck off it.

      I’m sure great things will come from the Blair/Schwarzenegger collaboration. Might as well just file it under “problem solved”. The Guvenator got my vote last time for the asking. This time he has to earn it and he’s way far from sealing the deal. However, with or without my vote, he will win.

      I cancelled my 15 year subscription to the Economist a couple of months ago, when their obituary was on the Gitmo inmates off-ing themselves.

    1. I have to go with Andrea on this one.  Ol’ Pat’s good for his entertainment value.  When I think he can’t come out with a statement dumber than the one he just made, he surprises me.

      Posted by RebeccaH on 2006 08 04 at 12:23 PM • permalink


    1. I knew people who worked for Pat back before he got famous.

      One had the job of previewing all the Popeye cartoons before they were shown on CBN to eliminate the ones featuring the Sea-Hag, who, as you no doubt will have figured out before I can tell you, was a non-angelic supernatural being and therefore Spawn of the Devil.

      Pat’s crazy as a loon, but his fans are crazier.

    1. You are quite right, Andrea. Don’t get me wrong, I like ‘ol Pat, and am defnitely gonna try the pancake recipe.

      Besides, the man had the cojones to come right out and say “We should just take out Hugo Chavez!”—or words to that effect—and apologised most abjectly to Ariel Sharon’s son for intimating that the former’s stroke was caused by his usurping the will of G-d by pulling out of Gaza.

      The apology is on his website.
