"Political language -- and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists -- is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind."
-- George Orwell, Politics and the English Language

Guided By Voices
Is there anybody out there in the "serious" journamalism industry who can give even a half-assed reason why the ravings of this shithouse rat are considered remotely newsworthy? Jesus Christ, this is one step removed from reporting what some crazy fuck with a sandwich board is ranting on the street.
Evangelical broadcaster Pat Robertson said Tuesday that God has told him that a terrorist attack on the United States would cause a "mass killing" late in 2007.
"I'm not necessarily saying it's going to be nuclear," he said during his news-and-talk television show "The 700 Club" on the Christian Broadcasting Network.
"The Lord didn't say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that."
That's how you know it's bullshit. Everyone knows that He pronounces it "nucular". That's where the Bumpkin-in-Chief picked it up.
Seriously. Who are the drooling morons keeping this guy in business, and why are they allowed to have money?
