Oh, this is a stunning development
Wingnuts of a feather wingnut together:
WASHINGTON (CNN) — CNN has learned that Pat Robertson today will endorse Rudy Giuliani for President.
Republican and Giuliani campaign sources tell CNN Chief National Correspondent John King that Robertson, the television evangelist and Christian Coalition leader, will endorse the former New York City Mayor when the two men appear together at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Well, isn't that lovely. I guess St. Rudy figures this will be his "in" with the religious reich; endorsement by one of their own.
It was Robertson’s 1988 presidential campaign that, while unsuccessful, cemented evangelical voters as a dominant force within the Republican Party.
Gosh, thanks ever so much, Pat! I can't TELL you how much I appreciate the de facto requirement now that every Presidential candidate bend over backwards accommodating your Taliban-esuqe peers, while the people who paid a little more attention to what the Bible actually says, instead of your peculiarly bigoted version, get ignored. I can't express my admiration of your masterful way of taking a big stinky dump all over the democratic process, hiding your religious affiliations while you ran for office, pretending you weren't actually an Evangelical 'cause it might not be good press. (I believe that falls under "bearing false witness", but maybe that's just me.)
Oh, and your dumbass attempt during that campaign to invoke another Cuban Missile Crisis. Smooth move, Sherlock.
And I really want to thank you, Pat, for enabling others as willfully ignorant and hateful as you are to ooze into the political environment in a like manner.
Maybe Rudy'll make you his Ambassador to Israel. Or maybe Zaire or Liberia. Wouldn't that be special.
