Pat Robertson-- Nothing if Not Reliable

Pat Robertson can always be relied upon to be crazy and offensive:

Conservative Christian evangelical broadcaster Pat Robertson on Thursday linked Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke to God's "enmity against those who 'divide my land.'"

"He was dividing God's land and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU, the United Nations, or the United States of America," Robertson said on his television program, "The 700 Club," broadcast from his Christian Broadcasting Network in Virginia Beach. "God says 'this land belongs to me. You better leave it alone.'"

Apparently, the 77-year old morbidly obese Sharon would have lived in perfect health forever were it not for his decision to cede control of Gaza to its inhabitants.
