So now Pat Robertson is saying that he didn't say "assassinate" when it came to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
Uh huh. And monkeys are flying out of my butt.
Let's all refresh our memories of what Pat said, shall we?
I didn't say 'assassination.' I said our special forces should, quote, "take him out," and "take him out" can be a number of things including kidnapping. There are a number of ways to take out a dictator from power besides killing him. I was misinterpreted by the AP, but that happens all the time.
You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war.
We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another $200 billion war to get rid of one, you know, strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with.
Mmmhm. Whatever, Pat. Seriously.
Does anyone else notice that Pat is getting a little shaky? I'm talking early stages of Parkinson's, perhaps. Dude needs to retire and get some rest.
