Pat Robertson really, really dislikes Hugo Chavez

The occasionally wacky Greg Palast has a fascinating chapter in The Best Democracy Money Can Buy on Hugo Chavez and the US role in supporting the “popular coup” that tried to force him out of office (here’s the BBC story on which it is based). No surprise that Donald Rumsfeld is once again stalking squinty-eyed through Latin America trying “to stitch together support for isolating Chávez” (to the consternation of Arlen Specter). But to hear Pat Robertson – of, you may recall, the 700 Club and the Christian Coalition for America – openly calling for Chavez’ assassination?! (via Atrios)
