It's horrifying to think of how many people ingest his drivel. But look at this:

Rev. Paul Raushenbush, the religion editor for the Huffington Post, gave
Robertson a harsher directive: "Go to Hell, Pat Robertson -- and the sooner
the better," he wrote. "Your 'theological' nonsense is revolting. Don't
speak for Haiti, and don't speak for God. Haiti is suffering a catastrophe
and you offer silliness at best, and racism at the worst."

"It never ceases to amaze that in times of amazing human suffering somebody
says something that could be so utterly stupid," White House Press Secretary
Robert Gibbs said at his daily press briefing today.

David Waters, editor of the Washington Post's "On Faith" online column, said
the time has come for Robertson to stop.

"Considering the massive death, destruction and misery in Haiti, it is
shameful for anyone -- but especially a so-called minister of the gospel --
to suggest that God or the poor people of Haiti had anything to do with it,"
Waters wrote.

Sometimes stupidity is excruciatingly painful (drying your poodle in a microwave, using a soldering iron to floss your teeth, playing "chicken" with a freight train, choking yourself with.....well, you get the idea. In Robertson's case, the true horror is the rapt enrollment of the followers.
