The fact that blogs and the news are covering this freaks me out a little bit. I’m sorta disappointed in the blogosphere for continuing to cover this…I’ll just add to the pile.
I remember having to watch Pat Robertson on The 700 Club when I’d go to the babysitters in the morning. This was when I was really little. Even then I remember not listening to what he had to say. I knew he was just talking to get money for god. I’ve always thought he was pretty much insane. That’s why I can’t figure out why so many people put so much weight in what he said about assisinating Chavez.
Now, there’s no doubt that Chavez is a dangerous guy. Just check out what Danny Carlton (Jack) had to say about him in his commtary today. He’s also got a good post about what Chavez is up to and where all his money goes. Sounds like he likes to play with his military. Can’t say I blame him.
Stones Cry Out have a post entitled “An Embarrassing Retraction by Robertson”. It’s actually pretty funny. Sounds like Jim put a lot of thought into it.
What’s almost even funnier is the fact that a Finnish christian TV station is dropping The 700 Club because of what Robertson said. Way to go guys!
Personally, I think we should assisinate Chavez. Too bad it’s illegal. We should repeal whatever law it is that prevents political assisinations. I think it’s executive order 12333. Well, I take that back. He should be assisinated if he does anything to antagonize us. Forget what he’s done in the past, focus on now and the future. If he can shut up and be a good little dictator/president, then we should leave him alone.
Castro is gonna be a bad influence on him.
UPDATE: Ace of Spades HQ has basically the whole entire thing right. Ace touched on pretty much every aspect of how the U.S. should react. Didn’t the U.S. government play a role in killing Pablo Escobar?
