And here comes Robertson’s master-stroke, just in time. It’s one thing for Romney to not drink alcohol. We all know people like that. We’ve grown used to people who drink too much and to people who don’t drink at all. But when, thanks to the exciting new dispensation Robertson envisions, the entire country is watching Pineapple Express and getting high, an abstinent president straight out of Brigadoon will be an intolerable anomaly.
It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “Tea Party.”
What if Pat Robertson’s sudden reefer madness is a shrewd ploy to derail Romney and Mormonism with him?
