As a Great Surprise To Absolutely No One...

"Folk singer supports anti-war protesters."

No shit. That reads like one of those Onion headlines that overstates the obvious for tragicomic effect. At least it made me laugh harder than today's other eye-popper: "U.S. televangelist calls for assassination of Venezuelan president."

What a terribly un-Christian thing to do, don't you think?

Edit (August 26, '05) : The Guardian reports, "Yesterday [Pat Robertson] apologised for his remarks. 'Is it right to call for assassination? No, and I apologise for that statement. I spoke in frustration that we should accommodate the man who thinks the US is out to kill him,' he said."

Hmm. Lord only knows why Chavez would think America is out to kill him, eh, Pat?
