Pat Robertson is in the stocks this week for genuflecting to Tim Tebow instead of Christ. Pat ranted about being “disgusted” by the Saturday Night Live skit in which Jesus suggests Tim Tebow should “take it down a notch.”
Pat’s just jealous that SNL hasn’t done a good skit about him since 1988.
In that piece about the Republican Presidential Debate, Bob Dole (Dan Aykroyd) tells Robertson (Al Franken) “You know, and I know, that you’re an old Bible-thumping, revival show con artist from way back, who claims to heal people. I’ll tell you something, Pat Robertson – you turn to me and heal my right arm, and I’ll be glad to step aside and let you be President of the United States!”
Now that’s funny.
In The Stocks returns us to the era before mass media, when village miscreants were pilloried for public mocking and ridicule.
