He Keeps Making Hits...


I'm here to let you know that the rumors are not true. No matter what you heard any where else on the net, we here at MidwestMindset.com did not make a New Years resolution to not post.

We were just waiting for something that reminded us of the good old days... 2005

Like this.

I think that I'm finally beginning to understand the mind of the great Pat Robertson. Here's the background in case you haven't been paying attention.

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has been struggling with some major health problems that culminated this week in a major stroke. While the media speculated on Sharon's current condition the hospital assured the public today that he was clinging to life after major surgery.

Of course the 700 Club had wall to wall coverage of this story and Robertson had some very interesting things to say about Sharon's situation. Robertson believes that this stroke was God's punishment for Sharon's recent actions, namely The prime ministers decision to withdraw Israeli settlers and troops from Gaza and parts of the West Bank in hopes of peace with Palestine.

Here are some of the heart warming things that Robertson had to say...

"He was dividing God's land, and I would say, 'Woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the [European Union], the United Nations or the United States of America,' God says, 'This land belongs to me, and you'd better leave it alone,'"


What is becoming clear that Robertson doesn't just think that someone who disagrees with him is wrong, Robertson believes that all of his political opinions are held by Almighty God. Whenever someone goes against what Robertson has decided is Right he believes that God's ultimate response will be anger and pain for those who disagree with him.

Now this might not seem like news to anyone I believe that we here at MidwestMindset.com better take note because we have on occasion disagreed with Robertson. It kind of makes me scared to say that I disagree with him because you never know what will happen to me if I voice it in any way.

And isn't that the point. Control by fear.

It always makes me smile to know that one doesn't have to be a liberal Presbyterian, etc (like myself) to be in such sharp disagreement with Pat Robertson. I don't think I've actually gone through with making a comment on here, but I read Midwest Mindset pretty regularly because I love reading what you are all thinking.

hey i've had a cold all week...

let's play "act like your pat robertson" for a while, i expect everyone to chip in here:

"'Woe unto you USC trogans, and any other sports team that promotes pre-marital sex with your mascot,' God says, 'It is because you are named after a prophylactic that I allowed Vince Young to run all over you."

For those needing inspiration, remember what he said about the middle east, new orleans, etc. and then get creative. I have one in mind but I'm saving it to see what you all come up with...

I saw the CNN post and was wondering what the mighty MidwestMindset would say about it. Just so you know, I have forwarded your emails and blog to Pat himself...be ready for the coming retribution.

Oh, BTW, Jake...this part of your comment: "that promotes pre-marital sex with your mascot" leaves an interesting picture. I mean, I've seen some interesting mascots....and some of them need all the dating help they can get. Heck, I was a mascot in junior college...and in those days I probably would have welcomed something promoting pre-marital sex with the mascot.

One of the situations that we never addressed here at midwestmindset.com was when Pat Robertson commented on the Philadelphia Eagles missing the playoffs for the first time in a while.

"Woe unto any NFL Head Coach who takes away T.O.'s right to play football and celebrate touchdown catches to appease Donavan McNabb, Hugh Dougless, the Philadelphia Eagles or the United States Sports Media,' God says, 'This TO's got game, and you'd better let him play'"

He then called for Andy Reid's "professional assasination." I thought that last bit was over the top, but you know Pat Robertson

this just in...

Today on the 700 Club Robertson debuted a new segment on the media... He talked about Arrested Development getting canceled and other... here's the quotes...

"They were trying to do a one camera format - with no laugh track, and I would say, 'Woe unto any sitcom who takes a similar course to appease the "smart" tv viewers, the snobby Sienfield fans, and the Emmy voters' God says, 'This According to Jim is the format that I have ordained since the begining of time, and if you like your job you'd better leave it alone,'"

Robertson then prayed that God would remove the one camera/no laugh track formats from the air by whatever means necessary so that shows of a more "traditional" nature and conservative values can return to the air (such as "My Wife and Kids" and "7th Heaven").

Watch out "the office" and "my name is earl" Robertson's coming for you.

this also just in:

someone once told chuck norris that roundhouse kicks were not the best way to kick someone. this has been recorded by historians as the biggest mistake ever made.

I think a simple equation explains it all: (America's favorite false prophet=Pat Robertson) + (America's favorite idiot=George W. Bush) = dumb and dumber.

You know, friends, I think somewhere I have some incriminating photos of myself, Leah Coon, and norm the forester in a hardy hall couch-bed.
