Pat Robertson has lost it

By | January 6, 2007

I think it is safe to say that Pat Robertson has pretty much lost all contact with reality:

In what has become an annual tradition of prognostications, religious broadcaster Pat Robertson said Tuesday God has told him that a terrorist attack on the United States would result in “mass killing” late in 2007.”I’m not necessarily saying it’s going to be nuclear,” he said during his news-and-talk television show “The 700 Club” on the Christian Broadcasting Network. “The Lord didn’t say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that.”

Now, I’m not saying that Robertson has ever had a firm grasp of reality, but at least he used to seem like he had at least one foot grounded in the real world. But now? I think he’s lost it. Completely and totally. Unfortunately, his delusions are going to scare the hell (and a lot of cash) out of a lot of gullible people. And that’s just plain sad.

Welcome to 2007, I guess.
