Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is Reverend Pat Robertson. Robertson is a past Knucklehead winner, and considering his recent remarks must want to be a 2006 Knucklehead of the year contender. I granted that wish.

Pat Robertson gets today's reward for his recent comments about ailing Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. On his tv show the 700 Club, Robertson said-

"God considers this land to be his," Robertson said on his TV program "The 700 Club." "You read the Bible and he says `This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, `No, this is mine.'"

Sharon, who ordered Israel's withdrawal from Gaza last year, suffered a severe stroke on Wednesday.

In Robertson's broadcast from his Christian Broadcasting Network in Virginia Beach, the evangelist said he had personally prayed about a year ago with Sharon, whom he called "a very tender-hearted man and a good friend." He said he was sad to see Sharon in this condition.

He also said, however, that in the Bible, the prophet Joel "makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who 'divide my land.'"

Sharon "was dividing God's land and I would say woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU European Union), the United Nations, or the United States of America," Robertson said.

Robertson's words say it all. The man is obviously losing it when you also take in his Hugo Chavez remarks of last year. Dr. Taylor says Robertson is nuts. James Joyner refers to the remarks as Robertson's latest idiocy and that the Reverend doesn't represent the majority of Evangelical Christians.

For giving Evangelical Christians a black eye, Pat Robertson is today's Knucklehead of the day.
