Endorsements for sale

This is tv evangelist Pat Robertson, presumably jammin' to some Dokken when this picture was taken.

Yesterday, he undoubtedly took a shitload of money from the Republican National Committee in return for his endorsement of professional tragedy exploiter Rudy Giuliani.

Wow, what a coincidence. Rudy, who is on his third marriage, has cheated on twice as many wives as Bill Clinton, and is pro choice and pro gay civil unions, is the Republican's only hope in the general election. Unfortunately for those who want to keep the country heading in its present death spiral, the Religious Right threatens to block his nomination in the primaries.

But now the Religious Right just had a bone thrown their way. A guy who uses Jesus Christ to rip off the old and the sick has officially endorsed Rudy. Damn, Giuliani must be okay after all if someone who steals money from the feeble-minded in the name of God supports him. He'll get the nomination for sure now!

As a funny aside, just a few years ago Pat Robertson indirectly blamed Rudy for the 9/11 attacks. Wait, let me explain. While bodies were still being pulled from the rubble of the World Trade Center, Jerry Falwell was on Robertson's television show, blaming the attack on "abortionists". Robertson said, "I agree." Those words would lead me to believe that Robertson did indeed "agree" with Falwell's sentiments. Since Rudy Giuliani has always been pro choice (or an "abortionist" in crazy speak), Robertson and his now-dead pal sort of blamed him for attacking his own city. Wacky stuff, huh?

I wonder why Pat Robertson would endorse a man with whom he disagrees so vehemently? I'm guessing there was a big pile of money involved. The filthy lucre always has been Robertson's real god, anyway.

I thought Rudy had it in the bag when he snagged the transgendered gay marriage abortionist vote, no?

Clearly Jesus had a say in this.

Didn't you go to a Baptist high school? Never should have stolen that watermelon, bro.

Robertson looks like Beavis rockin' out to AC/DC. Hey, weren't you a HUGE AC/DC fan back in those days too? Hee hee.

I know the left is hoping like hell that the right wingers will prevent Giuliani from getting the nomination in the primaries, but it simply isn't going to happen. If it is between a Rudy and a socialist choices on the left, we will take Rudy.

i like this post. it's like an andy rooney thing, but more fun.

That is a hilarious picture, by the way. Looks like he's at an Amy Grant concert. The only thing missing is the white man's overbite.
