Pat Robertson is an idiot

On January 3rd, Pat Robertson announced that God had told him who the next president would be and that the US was headed towards economic collapse.

I’d like to point out that if Pat Robertson needed God to tell him that the US economy would likely continue to be in trouble, then Pat Robertson is pretty damn stupid. Are his followers going to wake up tomorrow, turn on the news, hear the talking heads talk about layoffs, more unemployment, etc., and say, “Holy Cow, Pat was right!”?

I, too, have a method for divining the future:

I’m not big on bible stuff, but isn’t the good book pretty specific on telling the reader that people who claim to be prophets are liars?  (2 Chronicles 18:22):  “Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil against thee.”
