What is WRONG with these people?

Yesterday, the increasingly aged nutter, The 700 Club's Pat Robertson went off again on an insane rant, this one about Haiti. He said, and sadly, I quote: “Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about. [Haitians] were under the heel of the French...and they got together and swore a pact to the Devil. They said, ‘we will serve you if you’ll get us free from the French.’ True story. And the Devil said, ‘OK it’s a deal.’ Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after another.”

But just when you thought Demented Pat couldn't be topped for the Batshit Award, Rush Limbaugh stepped in during his radio programmer with (and notice I quote) the following proFOUNDly insensitive and freakin' STUPID statement in response to a caller's question about where he could donate money to help with the tragic Haitan situation: ""We've already donated to Haiti,'' Limbaugh told the caller on his radio show. "It's called the U.S. income tax." But that's just the VERY tip of the hateful bile he spewed.

I encourage you to read the full transcript of the show, including such charming segments such as "Oh, this is what he (Obama) lives for. He lives for serving those in misery. Now, don’t misunderstand here, folks. I don’t have the whole press conference, but I wonder did he apologize for America before acknowledging we are the only people on earth that can possibly help ‘em out down there in any significant way? By the way, I’ve checked it out, Cuba has offered nothing. Venezuela has offered nothing. They have nothing to offer. (interruption) Venezuela is going to send 30 people? Well, they’re people who want to get out of there anyway because they’re having rolling blackouts in Venezuela, in Caracas, which is an oil-driven — it’s the most amazing thing. The vision of our future is right before our eyes in Venezuela. Socialist country, devalued the currency on purpose a couple days ago, putting people in jail if they raise prices as a result of this. We are devaluing our own currency, not as rapidly as Hugo Chavez did but we’re doing it with all of our deficit spending and borrowing. " You can find it posted here.

So, Heartless Rat Bastard Award of the week goes to Rush Limbaugh. An easy choice. The ONLY saving grace in all this is the relief I get by watching Jon Stewart and his brilliant associates give us this news with that mythical spoonful of sugar. See for yourself...
