I never thought I’d be posting something positive, nay… glowing, about something Pat Robertson said (via ):
The founder of the Christian Broadcast Network charged the Republican Congress as “abandoning” fiscal responsibility, noting among other things the $223 million for the construction of a bridge connecting Alaska’s Gravina Island to Ketchikan (also dubbed “the Bridge to Nowhere”).
“This is our government at work, and unfortunately it is run by Republicans,” he said.
Robertson was among several Republican figures who spoke to a group of about 40 people at the convention held at the Prince William County Government Center.
In light of the NSA wire-tapping revelation, which he called a “tool of oppression,” Robertson admonished the Bush administration for “encroaching on” Americans’ personal liberties.
“One day this whole thing is going to be in your hands,” Robertson said to the group of teenagers, encouraging them not to stray from their “core values” – Christianity, limited government and fiscal responsibility – in their political pursuits.
*Rubs eyes* Did he really just say something all pro-libertarian? Or have I ended up in a parallel dimension where Al Gore really is the president?
I’m going to start watching The 700 Club just to see if an alien chestburster rips through Robertson’s chest one day and starts quoting Thomas Jefferson.
