Pat Robertson Provides Worst Endorsement EVER

Marion "Pat" Robertson, noted televangelist, publicly stated that, before the invasion of Iraq in 2003, he informed Pres. Bush that he "had better prepare the American people for casualties" in Iraq ("the Lord told me it was going to be A, a disaster, and B, messy"). According to Mr. Robertson, the president responded, "Oh, no, we're not going to have any casualties." Mr. Robertson went on to state that said he wishes Pres. Bush would "admit to mistakes that he has made", but then notes that he supports Bush in his bid for reelection, as "the blessing of heaven is on Bush."

CNB wonders:
  1. If Pres. Bush is thinking "Thanks, Pat. Get off my side."
  2. Why Pres. Bush, with his noted direct pipeline to God, did not see this coming. Possibly Mr. Robertson got faulty information, which is why Pres. Bush felt free to disregard advice allegedly coming from the Almighty? (Bush should know all about faulty information)
  3. If this is proof that that polytheists are correct, and Pat and Georgieboy are simply talking to different deities?

In any event, this is the worst endorsement of a candidate since Kerry Haters for Kerry.
