Eternal Sayings From Recent Times

First, our dear friend, the conservative Christian televangelist and arch-wingnut Pat Robertson prophesies the future of the Dover school district in Pennsylvania where the most recent school board started a war for creationism and where the voters promptly got rid of them:

"I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: if there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city," Robertson said on his daily television show broadcast from Virginia, "The 700 Club."

"And don't wonder why He hasn't helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I'm not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that's the case, don't ask for His help because he might not be there," he said.

See! God's feelings are very easily hurt and Mr. Robertson is that go-between in all this.

And then Arnold Schwartzenegger had a serious bout of introspection after having all his propositions soundly rejected by California voters:

In a reference to his famous movie role, he said at a news conference: "If I were to do another Terminator movie, I would have the Terminator travel back in time to tell Arnold not to have a special election."

Too sad reality doesn't have retakes, and too sad that voters must learn not to elect people who have no experience with real politics by first electing them.
