The Most Extraordinary Rendition of All

PZ Myers has my favorite take on Pat Robertson's recent claim that God told him that America would suffer a very bad terrorist attack "sometime after September" this year:
Hang on there. A possible nuclear attack by terrorists? We've heard this possibility discussed before as a justification for torture. Robertson knows something. Quick, call Kiefer Sutherland and let the waterboarding begin!

Once he breaks, he'll lead us to the terrorist mastermind (codename: Lord), and then we can send in a Ranger battalion to take him out.

Alas that this is only slightly less silly and convoluted than the average 24 plot.

"The Lord didn't say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that."

"...and he didn't actually say 'attack,' but I do believe something like that will be enough to scare the bejabbers out of you gullible 700 Club viewers, and keep the flow of checks coming in."
