I knew Cardinal Richelieu, and Pat Robertson, you're no Richelieu

The holy-rolling Reverend Pat Robertson, who went off his remaining meds some months ago and is free-falling into full-tilt dementia, came out with a pronouncement on the gravely ill Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

In a nutshell, it goes something like this:
He had it coming.

Robertson elaborated, as much as one can when one is non compis mentis, "He's dividing God's land. And I say 'Woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the E.U., the United Nations, of the United States of America.' God says 'This land belongs to me. You better leave it alone.'"

God's office put out a brief comment:
For the last time, my land is Hawaii. I cursed Israel and every godforsaken fool that wants it, lives in it, or makes pilgrimages to it, and I'll curse it again.

In a not-so-surprising turn of events, the Bush White House has belatedly realized that Robertson is a bad pony and they're not betting on him anymore. Bush, who is on a first name basis with God, is praying for Sharon's recovery. That crazy Bush - always willing to put himself out there for his friends.

The Israeli ambassador, Daniel Ayalon, compared Robertson to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The same guy who said the Holocaust never happened, and maybe all of Israel should be transplanted to Europe. Just calling it like it is.
