Pat Robertson

Even if you’re not plugged into the Christian Television world, you probably know Pat Robertson. He’s been on your television for four decades now and utilized his power as a Christian celebrity to enter into mainstream culture and, yes, politics. He ran for President in 1988 and even won a few states in the primary. Trouble is, he might be a monumental asshole. Take a listen and see what you think.
