The Robertson Flap

My initial reaction matches this remark by Mark Daniels:
But there can be no possible Biblical justification for a Christian to call for the execution of a leader of a nation with which our country is not at war.
My second thought was: There are a lot of snarky remarks that half of the public says in private that you shouldn't say in public.

Third thought: I wonder if any of these people are railing against Robertson for condoning violence?

Fourth: offing an autocrat doesn't guarantee that his replacement will be any better. Never depose a leader without having a heavily-armed force to manage the transition process (*coughIraqcough*).

Lastly, I suspect that many of the people least offended are conservatives who normally can't stand Robertson. (You'll find some of those people - perhaps many - at this comment thread at Misha's.) Maybe Pat's trying to expand his base in anticipation of another presidential bid? Has he been spotted in Iowa or New Hampshire lately?
