    Oh but it gets better! Apparently Robertson also said this:
    As Atrios notes:
    Any liberal who made that claim would be forced from whatever organization that gave them a platform to say it, but Robertson gets to keep on keepin' on... It's disgusting.

    There are actually three issues that matter to the social right. God, gays, and guns.

    It actually might not be a bad idea to find a *very* liberal Muslim judge (there have to be a few out there, right?) and nominate her (OK, now I'm probably dreaming) to a high appellate court, then scream racism when the right (rightly) flips out over her out-of-the-mainstream judicial opinion.

    Or better yet, find a moderately left-of-center Muslim for the job.

    That's why Guiliani is a losing candidate for the GOP. No matter what Robertson says, evangelicals and rednecks will stay home rather than vote for a pro-choice, pro-gun-control guy who's soft on gays too.

    So, essentially.... the increasingly marginalized bulk of the GOP: Moderates are not a factor in determining a GOP candidate. I can see this... Being that the GOP machine is currently still in debt to the religious bleeding-right-edge.

    Now if someone could just talk W into growing an odd little moustache no wider than his nose...

    And Giuliani?

    In fact I just lost whatever respect I had for Rudy Giuliani, now that I know who calls him "a very good friend."

    I wonder whether Rudy will disavow his "very good friend" Pat Robertson's characterization of Muslims?

    Anyone else remember the stink theliberalmedia made about comments made by Whoopi Goldberg that were deemed inappropriate? Democrats were forced to disavow her comments, and they were linked to John Kerry as if he'd said them. Yet have we heard more than a peep out of theliberalmedia over this? It's been widely reported on lefty blogs but on the MSM?

    And lest we forget, Whoopi was never a Democratic Presidential hopeful. Robertson was.
