Daily Double Nuts

Today, this blog serves up a Daily Double 'Toon Feature providing two views of the Reverend Mr. Pat Robertson (aka Pray For Money Pat). During his daily scam on "The 700 Club" on his Christian Broadcasting Network (aka cable station), Pray For Money Pat offered his wacky take on the Haitian earthquake. The disaster was divine retribution for a Haitian revolutionary leader's pact with Satan in 1791 when French colonial control of Haiti was overthrown in a slave revolt. Pray For Money Pat's followers attend the Tea Party conventions and mob scenes and vote Dumbo at every opportunity. If this is (fair & balanced) racial nuttiness, so be it.
