Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

Lemme get this straight:

According to Pat Robertson, if Haiti hadn't made a pact with the devil 200 years ago, there would be no earthquake there, and the horrible poverty that preceded it likewise could have been averted. "True story," he said in his telecast on The 700 Club.

Because, as we know, there's NO other way that anyone could have possibly defeated the French. Only by using Faustian strategy could such a thing be accomplished.

And it took two centuries before the time was just right, eh, Pat?

Folks, there was a time when this guy had a real shot at the Republican presidential nomination. [Shudder.]

I think Pat Paulson had a better shot. I remember the debate. Robinson or Jesse Jackson. Commentators were commentating. I was saying "Are you Effing Kidding Me"

Thing is, like Jimmy Carter, he's consistently gotten loopier. I can hardly wait to see what he sounds like in another four or five years.

If Haitians made a pact with the Devil, why do they live in such misery?

If you were doing deals with the Devil (and somehow had standing to bind your countrymen and generations to come), would you have a clause or two about the luxury you were to live in?

§1: The streets paved with gold clause.
§2: The hot women clause.
§3: The Fountains of booze clause.
§4: The Mansions for all clause.
§5: The lack of disease clause.

They kicked out the French, ripped out a white stripe in the flag, and had to eat muddy shit in socialistic regimes? I sold my soul to the Devil and all I got was this lousy t-shirt (which I had to eat)?

And now Danny Glover says Haiti's earthquake happened because we failed at Copenhagen. From one kook fringe to the other...

At least Pat finished by saying that his group was sending aid supplies and relief workers, despite the Haitians "pact with the devil" or whatever. I don't see Danny Glover doing that, or the guy over on Yahoo who says it's the USA's fault that the Haitians didn't build to California's earthquake code requirements.
