pat robertson is an ignorant ass

Pat Robertson, being an ignorant crazy ass once again. This week, on the February 7 edition of the Christian Broadcasting Network's The 700 Club, Robertson said that people who have received too much plastic surgery "got the eyes like they're Oriental" while he put his fingers up to the side of his face. You know, like they used to do on te playground. Where'd you learn that, Pat—third grade? He was referring to Fox News host Greta Van Susteren's plastic surgery: Robertson: Too much plastic surgery gives people "Oriental" eyes. They've got a video clip over at Media Matters, but here's the basic transcript:
ROBERTSON: You know there's a lady named Greta Van Susteren, who's on Fox.

WATTS: Yeah.

ROBERTSON: Got a very popular --

WATTS: Oh, I saw her.

ROBERTSON: She looked gorgeous last night, but she had a really serious facial deal. And it did a wonder --

WATTS: Sister needed help.

ROBERTSON: Sister got the help.

WATTS: Sister -- she needed some help, yeah.

ROBERTSON: But she got it. She just looks great, and she's so popular.

WATTS: But have you ever seen someone who got it too much, and so they come up to you, and they're like, "Pat, how are you doing? It's so good to see you."

ROBERTSON: Yeah, they got the eyes like they're Oriental, and, you know, it's all pulled. So, make sure you do it right. But -- it's -- that's one way you can go, but it'll cost you five or six thousand dollars probably. All right. What else?
Was that really necessary? Robertson, of course, has a history of ridiculous and ignorant remarks. It's scary to think a guy like this wields so much power through CBN. Oriental eyes? That's racist!
