Or, Who Would Jesus Assassinate?
On Air America (The Rachel Maddow Show and Morning Sedition) this morning they've been playing a clip of Pat Robertson suggesting that the United States launch a covert operation to assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
Been a while since I've read the gospels, so maybe I'm just forgetting, but.... Where in the Sermon on the Mount does Jesus say "Blessed are they who terminate with extreme prejudice heads of state who displease them"?
If Pat's going to heaven, I'm glad I'm headed to hell. Or as Mark Twain put it, "There you have it. Choose heaven for climate, and hell for society."
UPDATE: MediaMatters has the video clip.
