The vilest maddest thing that Pat Robertson has ever said

You might think that a Christian, even a rightwing Christianist piece of fly-infested mumbling shit, would regard the most important thing about the Haitian earthquake would be the absolute duty of everyone, Christian or merely human, to act in accordance with the Beatitudes - heal the sick, feed the hungry, all that jazz.

But no, Robertson has the real stuff to explain to us:

Apart from the insanity of all of that, he's a historical simpleton and illiterate who cannot even tell Napoleon from his nephew.

Somehow this is even more insane than if it were the simple racism that it clearly is underneath - people like this live in a garish world of angels and demons that make comic books look like Wittgenstein.
