This Is Rich [Corrected]

[UPDATE: Note that I got this totally, totally wrong. The source for this quote comes from the very satirical, Onion-like Dateline Hollywood site. Still, rather entertaining, and not so far-fetched.]

Pulling back from putting out hits on duly elected foreign leaders, the ever wise Pat Robertson turns his attentions to Hollywood:

Pat Robertson on Sunday said that Hurricane Katrina was God’s way of expressing its anger at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for its selection of Ellen Degeneres to host this year’s Emmy Awards. “By choosing an avowed lesbian for this national event, these Hollywood elites have clearly invited God’s wrath,” Robertson said on “The 700 Club” on Sunday. “Is it any surprise that the Almighty chose to strike at Miss Degeneres’ hometown?”

Robertson also noted that the last time Degeneres hosted the Emmys, in 2001, the September 11 terrorism attacks took place shortly before the ceremony.

“This is the second time in a row that God has invoked a disaster shortly before lesbian Ellen Degeneres hosted the Emmy Awards,” Robertson explained to his approximately one million viewers. “America is waiting for her to apologize for the death and destruction that her sexual deviance has brought onto this great nation.”

Can we now start ignoring this clown?
