Twin sons, different mothers

Recall that on August 21 I wrote, "It's one thing for somebody to say something and then to deny it later. It's quite another for a radio or TV host to say something on the air and then try to deny it later. Thanks to tape, either audio or video, documented proof exists -- there's no hope in trying to wiggle (lie) out of it. But, that's exactly what we often get with the likes of O'Reilly and Limbaugh." I neglected to mention Pat Robertson.

After stating in blatant terms that Chavez should be assassinated, a day or two later Robertson claims he was "misinterpreted." Here's his exact words regarding Chavez: "You know, I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it." And he says more along those lines, such as "We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability."

What's to misinterpret? Again, who do these guys think they're going to fool when it's all on tape?? Limbaugh just attempted this maneuver last week concerning his Sheehan comments. I imagine they believe their diehard followers are just too ignorant and/or lazy to realize that they're just flat-out lying.

Also, why is it King GW says not a peep about Robertson's call for an international incident? Yet, the King will fly in the middle of the night when it concerns Schiavo, he'll feel the urgency in that case.
