PAT ROBERTSON CLARIFIES: Joel Mowbray didn't say "nuke the State Department," -- Pat did. That was actually the way I heard it all along.
There's a reason why Pat Robertson was one of the original models for the term "idiotarian." As you know, I'm no fan of the Saudis, or of the State Department with which -- as Mowbray has pointed out -- the Saudis have far too much influence. Sadly, however, Robertson's dumb remarks, and Mowbray's failure to chastise Robertson (however futile such chastisement would surely be) only serve to strengthen the State Department's position.
