Twice the Dickheady Goodness

First: "Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson warned residents of a rural Pennsylvania town Thursday that disaster may strike there because they "voted God out of your city" by ousting school board members who favored teaching intelligent design."

Yet more proof that Pat Robertson is a lunatic. Didn't God tell him Bush would win by a landslide?

The normal pattern follows (as we saw when he called for Chavez' assassination) - he "clarifies": "Later Thursday, Robertson issued a statement saying he was simply trying to point out that "our spiritual actions have consequences."

"God is tolerant and loving, but we can't keep sticking our finger in his eye forever," Robertson said. "If they have future problems in Dover, I recommend they call on Charles Darwin. Maybe he can help them."

Funny thing, sticking finger in God's eye...I thought he was incorporeal, and that speaking of him in physical terms is akin to idolatry. (Sorry, I've been reading the Bible.)

It's always worth reminding people that Pat Robertson knowingly did business with one of the most brutal and murderous dictators in recent African history; if only this was something his audience knew.

So, dick number 1.

Dick number two - sort of a collective dick, less than an individual.

So Scott McClellan, in the daily lie fest on October 31, let his guard down and told the truth.

"At the Oct. 31 briefing, David Gregory of NBC News stated the following question to McClellan about White House aides Karl Rove and I. Lewis Libby: "Whether there's a question of legality, we know for a fact that there was involvement. We know that Karl Rove, based on what he and his lawyer have said, did have a conversation about somebody who Patrick Fitzgerald said was a covert officer of the Central Intelligence Agency. We know that Scooter Libby also had conversations."

The official White House transcript states that McClellan's response was "I don’t think that's accurate."

But two outside news agencies, Congressional Quarterly and Federal News Service -- which provide transcripts for a fee -- both reported the response as "that's accurate."

Not only do they report that - if you hear the audio or watch the video, you'll hear, quite clearly, Wormtongue saying this.

Never fear, though; the White House will right the record and replace what everyone there heard, and what everyone watching saw and heard, with what has to be heard to maintain our fervor for our war with Oceana.

Every day seems to bring yet a new low - and today, it's flat out of 1984.

Are you effin' kidding me?

What's next - the vice president is going to be working behind closed doors to make it okay for the US to commit torture?
