That was the morning of the Scooby-Doo cartoon-athon
George Will must have wandered into the kitchen to get a Lucky Charms refill when Pat Robertson was on TV:
And last Sunday Pat Robertson, who is fervid but also shrewd, seemed to understand that religious conservatives should be a bit more meek if they want to inherit the Earth. Robertson was asked on ABC’s “This Week” whether religious conservatives would be seriously disaffected if in 2008 the Republicans’ presidential nominee were to be someone like Rudy Giuliani.
Here’s Pat, that same interview, being fervid and shrewd and meek all at once:
Federal judges are a more serious threat to America than Al Qaeda and the Sept. 11 terrorists, the Rev. Pat Robertson claimed yesterday.
“Over 100 years, I think the gradual erosion of the consensus that’s held our country together is probably more serious than a few bearded terrorists who fly into buildings,” Robertson said on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”
“I think we have controlled Al Qaeda,” the 700 Club host said, but warned of “erosion at home” and said judges were creating a “tyranny of oligarchy.”
Confronted by Stephanopoulos on his claims that an out-of-control liberal judiciary is the worst threat America has faced in 400 years – worse than Nazi Germany, Japan and the Civil War – Robertson didn’t back down.
“Yes, I really believe that,” he said. “I think they are destroying the fabric that holds our nation together.”
One imagines George shuffling back into the living room in his robe and slippers asking, “What did I miss?”
