Romney campaigning with homophobic nut Pat Robertson today

Pat Robertson isn't just an old religious right leader. He's a hateful nut. A sampling of what kind of hate and quackery Mitt Romney is now embracing in his desperate quest for the presidency:

Haitian ambassador responds to Pat Robertson's remarks today about Haiti paying a price for making a pact with the devil

Then there was the time that Pat said that God gave Ariel Sharon his stroke as punishment.

Or the time God told Pat that he might just send a tsunami to America.

Or the time Robertson said it's better to just divorce a spouse with Alzheimer's.

Or the time Robertson said that Episcopalians, Methodists and Presbyterians are tied to the anti-Christ.

Then there's all of this:

Robertson is opposed to abortion and same-sex marriage.[15][16] He has described feminism as a "socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."

Many of Robertson's views mirror those of fellow evangelical pastor/activist Jerry Falwell, who made frequent appearances on The 700 Club. He agreed with Falwell when Falwell stated that the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks were caused by "pagans, abortionists, feminists, gays, lesbians, the American Civil Liberties Union and the People For the American Way."

On the June 8, 1998 edition of his show, Robertson denounced Orlando, Florida and Disney World for allowing a privately sponsored "Gay Days" weekend. Robertson stated that the acceptance of homosexuality could result in hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, terrorist bombings and "possibly a meteor."[20] The resulting outcry prompted Robertson to return to the topic on June 24, where he quoted the Book of Revelation to support his claims. The first hurricane of the 1998 Atlantic hurricane season,[21] Hurricane Bonnie, actually turned away from Florida and instead damaged the rest of the east coast. The area hardest hit by the hurricane was the Hampton Roads region,[22] which includes Virginia Beach,[23] where the Robertson's The 700 Club originates.[24] While other hurricanes did hit Florida,[21] none of them hit Disney World.

While discussing the Mark Foley scandal on the October 5, 2006 broadcast of the show, Robertson condemned Foley saying he "does what gay people do".

There's much more, just Google it.

But seriously, how desperately does Mitt Romney want this job that he has utterly sold his soul to the devil in order to get it? Is there anyone Mitt Romney won't pander to, any extremist or extreme position he won't embrace, in order to win in November? Is there point at which this man's better angels, if he still has any, will step in and say 'enough'?
