Pat Robertson is way too funny. He actually called for the assassination of Venezuella's president Chavez on his TV show: "I think we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war," Robertson said during Monday evening's broadcast of "The 700 Club," his Christian news-talk television show. "We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability." Hmm, yeah. That didn't go well! "Our department doesn't do that kind of thing. It's against the law," Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack called Robertson's comments "inappropriate" and out of step with U.S. policy. Not to mention it would be cost effective. OK, am i the only one who sometimes thinks that the Iraq war cost way too many billions? I mean if they wanted Saddam dead, all they had to do was put a price of 1 Billion on his head, and any one of us would've done it gladly then. Shit, for one Billion I would've killed Saddam and his whole family myself. And so would you. Don't even front like you wouldn't do it! Anyway, due to calls of outrage, Pat Robertson issued what could be refered to as an explanation, but it was kind of vague, probably because his foot was still stuck in his mouth. Conservative U.S. evangelist Pat Robertson, who called for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, said on Wednesday he was misinterpreted and there were a number of ways to "take him out" including kidnapping. "I said our special forces could take him out. Take him out could be a number of things including kidnapping," Robertson said on his "The 700 Club" television program. "There are a number of ways of taking out a dictator from power besides killing him. I was misinterpreted," Robertson added. Riiight!
