Amy: Per your post below, Swampland commenter Trifecta55 has a proposal for how we should deal with this:

Don’t you mean “radical cleric” Pat Robertson Michael?
I am semi serious. When crazy muslim preachers get that title, why don’t those of you in the media use that on Pat Robertson. I am serious, and politefully request a response if you have time.

UPDATE: CBN offers an exceedingly lame clarification of the radical cleric’s comments.

UPDATE2: Newsbusters does not like this post, and claims I am linking the radical cleric to inciting terrorism. From Merriam-Webster:


3 a : marked by a considerable departure from the usual or traditional : extreme b : tending or disposed to make extreme changes in existing views, habits, conditions, or institutions c : of, relating to, or constituting a political group associated with views, practices, and policies of extreme change d : advocating extreme measures to retain or restore a political state of affairs


Function: noun
Etymology: Late Latin clericus
Date: 1621

: a member of the clergy

To paraphrase the country song, what part of “radical cleric” don’t you understand?
