Bad hair day for Pat Robertson

News & Politics

ctually it wasn't the hair so much as it was the ridiculous and bigoted comments. There was the affirmation that Democratic judges represent a greater threat to the U.S. than Nazi Germany, the Civil War or al Qaeda; then there was the assertion that Muslims ought not be appointed to the cabinet; and finally he claimed that God allowed the tsunami to kill hundreds of thousands because "He" doesn't dabble in tectonic plates, magma or wind. Unfortunately, in '98 the the Rev. warned the city of Orlando that displays of gay pride like flag-waving would: "bring earthquakes, tornadoes and possibly a meteor." Interesting side note: Just 6 years later, Florida was pummeled by a half-dozen hurricanes as if to say: "hurricanes too. don't forget the hurricanes." (Media Matters)
