Where's the mute button when you want it

The Rev. Pat "Loon" Robertson has called for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Mr. Chavez is, no doubt, a vile excrescence on the human race, but any Christian minister (even one of such dubious history as PR) who would nonchalantly call for his political murder debases his calling. He is no better than the mullahs issuing fatwas against Western leaders.

I don't know that we can make him shut up, but how's this: let's give him a one-way ticket to Venezuela to talk things over with ol' Hugo.
