DANIEL DREZNER REMINDS US why Pat Robertson was one of the original models for the term "idiotarian."
Robertson isn't just idiotic, though: he's also corrupt. But, then, that's a trait he shares with a lot of others covered by that term.
UPDATE: Michael Graham is savaging Robertson. And don't miss this Michael Barone column on Robertson's sleazy Liberia connections, either. ("Pat Robertson's tie to Charles Taylor is based on a financial connection. In 1999 Robertson's Freedom Gold company signed a deal to mine an area in southeastern Liberia. The Liberian government, i.e. Taylor, has a 10 percent interest in Freedom Gold.")
