Conservative tantrums

Why is it that conservative pundits have an uncanny knack of throwing sociopathic hissy fits when things don't go their way? I can understand anger. I can understand vehement disagreement. But the need to wish not just misfortune but death and misery on the people who disagree with you? Some people weren't taken to the woodshed enough as a child.

First Bill O'Reilly has a vengeful conniption over San Francisco's ballot measures:
"And if Al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we're not going to do anything about it. We're going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead."

Yep. That's compassionate conservatism all right.

Then Pat Robertson seems to all but delight at the possibility of divine retribution, wishing disaster on fellow Americans who voted out the absurdity of Intelligent Design and turning God into an agent of Brother Pat's political ideology:
"I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: if there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city".

"And don't wonder why He hasn't helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I'm not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that's the case, don't ask for His help because he might not be there"

You do not speak for God, Pat. Don't embarass yourself any further by thinking that you do.

Pat goes on to say in response to criticisms about the above statement:
"I was simply stating that our spiritual actions have consequences and it's high time we started recognizing it. God is tolerant and loving, but we can't keep sticking our finger in His eye forever. If they have future problems in Dover, I recommend they call on Charles Darwin…maybe he can help them."

I wonder how 'tolerant and loving' a God is that would abandon men, women and children in a disaster just to dish out a little divine payback. Over a school board policy? Are you fucking kidding me?

And here I was told Intelligent Design wasn't a Christian evangelical apparatus. Seems Pat Robertson and God himself would disagree. Hmmmm.

Grow up, gentlemen. The world is FULL of disappointment.
