Pat Robertson, Mr. Holy o' Holy, wants to nuke the State Department!
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A26601-20...


The Rev. Pat Robertson seems to have backed away from his suggestion of last week that the State Department should be nuked. Robertson was chatting last week with Joel Mowbray, author of a book assailing the department, and offered: "When you get through" the book, "you say, 'If I could just get a nuclear device inside Foggy Bottom, I think that's the answer.' "

The State Department, understandably, was not pleased. "I lack sufficient capabilities to express my disdain," spokesman Richard Boucher said. "I think the very idea, though, is despicable."

(snip)

But it turns out this was not the first time that Robertson has suggested nuking the department. He did so in June when Mowbray was on the show.


Cool, huh?

When's he going to Guantanamo Bay? He is clearly an enemy combattant. Expressing the want to overthrow the government is a big no-no, or that's how it was the last I'd heard...
