Why Pat Robertson is an Idiot

Now, as readers here know, I am no fan of Venezuelan Dictator President Hugo Chavez, who's great idea for improving his people's life is to turn the country into Cuba-lite.

But, Pat Robertson is unhinged...

Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson has suggested that American agents assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to stop his country from becoming "a launching pad for communist infiltration and Muslim extremism."
[...]
"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."

If only the Left would show reciprocal criticism of their whackos (see Ward Churchill, Kos, etc).
