Moronic convergence

(Alternate title: Politics makes for strange bedfellows)

Howard Dean. Pat Robertson. Together. On television.

Excuse me, I think my mind just exploded.

Howard Dean, Chairman and lead vocalist of the Democratic National Committee, former governor of Vermont and erstwhile candidate for President of the United States. Pat Robertson, head of the 700 Club, minister, right-wing whacko, and erstwhile candidate for President of the United States. On television. Together.

Dean, taking time away from pushing for free abortions on demand for anyone (regardless of age, race, circumstance, financial status, or even sex), the removal of all outward displays of Christianity, legalizing drugs, public sanction of gay marriage, and a whole laundry list of liberal causes, appeared on Pat Robertson's TV show. That's the same Pat Robertson who called for religious testing of any and all government officials, the death penalty for abortionists and women who seek them, imprisoning gays, nuking our enemies, and assassinating foreign heads of state.

Dean was on the show to appeal to Robertson's supporters, to convince them that the Democrats were worthy of the Christian Right's support, that they could trust the Godless Secularists and Satan's Helpful Idiots with the reins of power.

Dean's lucky he didn't get burned at the stake.

As an agnostic, I have to fault God for a huge missed opportunity. Had lightning struck the studio with Dean and Robertson, I would have had no choice but to acknowledge His existence. But He blew it, and both men are still around to plague us today.

Hell, it's got me doubting my faith in quantum physics. According to them, when such polar opposites meet, they are supposed to mutually annihilate each other, yet both escaped unscathed.

Howard Dean and Pat Robertson. Together. On television.

My brain just exploded again.

Anyone got a spatula?

So, Dean supports a hate-filled demaogue. Funny, I imagine if Bush or Mehlman appeared on his show, there'd be a bit of a firestorm. I also don't expect to hear about how the Dems are in bed with the Religious Right or anything.

It's just the tactfully useful convergence of two world class bullshitters. People possesing two or more working brain cells never pay attention to either one of those putzes. That is why the Almighty has not caused the world to short circuit itself.

Imagine a version of American Idol, called King of the Bullshitters. In the final between these two who would the judges pick as the winner?

Mac Lorry:

It's just another shameless attempt by HD to disguise the Democratic agenda as something palatable to religious people. The fundamental problem is that most religious people accept the wisdom of scripture as immutable. For liberals, living one's life in accord with rules laid down thousands of years ago is untenable and even those liberals who say they are Christian often want to parse the Bible into what is the true word of God and what is not. The problems is that their guide then becomes their own fallible human nature, and with such a guide, the Bible is of no value to their spiritual growth. For democrats to make substantial in-roads into the ranks of Evangelical Christians, they must come to terms with the concept immutable truth.

Its actually quite simple. Pat Robertson supports bike paths, so Dean has no problem with him.

Anybody remember Oral Roberts and his schtick about giving money to his church or else God would call him "home"?

This definitely reminds me of that.

Mighty Dwight:

I by no means am a Pat Robertson supporter. I think in his old age Pat has gone off the deep end of the ocean idealogically. But can you please source your quote that says that Robertson supports "death penalty for abortionists and women who seek them"? I'm not sure I recall Robertson ever saying anything like that. I just tried to google it and I can't find anything either.

Peter F.:

No, Jay, you're looking at this in completely the wrong way. This is just proof of His glory and His mysterious sense of Humor. Who else would even consider putting these two in same place together? You just know He's slapping His knee, cackling heartily and saying "I just crack Myself up sometimes...!"

After we've been treated to years of hysteria from off to port about The Coming Neo-Con Theocracy™, we have John McCain kowtowing to Jerry Falwell, Rudy Giuliani endorsing Ralph Reed for lite-gubnor of Georgia ... and now this.

My God, the lefties were right -- only it's the moderate-to-liberals that are going to bring it about!
