Broadcaster Pat Robertson Calls For Retirement of Justices


— July 15, 2003

“Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson urged his nationwide audience Monday to pray for God to remove three justices from the Supreme Court so they could be replaced by conservatives.”

I would re-write that lead ‘graph as follows:

“Bigoted dipshit Pat Robertson, once again cloaking his narrow-minded racist and sexist views in pseudo-Christian cloth, urged his tiny, dimwitted audience Monday to pray to his archaic vision of “God” to remove three justices from the Supreme Court so that the Bush administration could replace them with moral fascists willing to blatantly violate the Constitution by imposing their own personal, restrictive religious views upon our richly diverse and open-minded nation, against the will of the vast majority of Americans.”

CNN says it somewhat more subtly here.
