WWJA (Who Would Jesus Assassinate?)

I stole this from Coop cause it was too funny.

"I don't know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we're trying to assassinate him, I think we really ought to go ahead and do it. It's a whole lot cheaper than starting a war, and I don't think any oil shipments will stop. But this man is a terrific danger, and this is in our sphere of influence, so we can't let this happen. We have the Monroe Doctrine, and we have other doctrines that we have announced, and without question, this is a dangerous enemy to our south, controlling a huge pool of oil that could hurt us very badly. We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability. We don't need another 200-billion-dollar war to get rid of one strong-arm dictator. It's a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with."

- Pat Robertson, advocating the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

He has since sort of apologized for the comment, but you've got to be kidding.

I think if Jesus would assassinate anyone, that he would pick Roberts any day of the week.

Did you mean Pat Robertson or the current Supreme Court nominee?


Wow! I didn't expect answers?! We'll make the bracelets together, sell them big, and split the profits.

Yeah, I meant Robertson. But of course, in jest.
