From the man who finished above George H. W. Bush in the 1988 Iowa Republican Caucuses:
He said that the storms weren’t a malicious act of God and instead turned it around on the victims, asking, “why did you build houses where tornadoes were apt to happen?” [...]
Robertson continued that the tornadoes may not have happened if people had prayed for divine intervention, “If enough people were praying He would’ve intervened, you could pray, Jesus stilled the storm, you can still storms.” He also told people who live in areas prone to natural disasters that it’s “their fault, not God’s.”
But come on, does anyone really take this lunatic seriously anymore? I mean, you’d have to be completely insane to court him and give him any attention as a real public figure worth…
Ok, sure. But are we really supposed to believe that Rand Paul would turn down an interview with anyone to the right of Sean Hannity? It’s television, for Pete’s sake!
Or maybe it’s just in the blood.
