Mr. X

I'd like you to read the following exchange (via Media Matters) from the Hannity & Colmes show.

However, I'm gonna hide the identity of one of the principal characters.

There will be a very brief quiz afterwards:
COLMES: Should (Hugo) Chavez be assassinated?

MR. X: Well, one day he's going to be aiming nuclear weapons; and what's coming across the Gulf isn't going to be Katrina, it's going to be his nukes.
Wait. Quick timeout. Wasn't aware that Venezuela had "nukes."

Google-monkeys confirm, please.
COLMES: Would you feel better going back to the original comment that if he were assassinated, the world would be a safer place?

MR. X: I think South America would. He is -- he is -- got hit squads. He's a very dangerous man.

COLMES: So, you're not taking back the comment. You believe assassination of Hugo Chavez would be in the best interests of the world.

MR. X: Well, rather than going to war. One day, we're going to have to go to war, I'm afraid, if he continues his policy, you know. But, I don't know. I wrote him a letter. I apologized to him.

COLMES: But, wait a minute. If you say you apologized to him, what you just said seems to contravene that, because you just now said --

MR. X: I know. I know.

COLMES: -- you think it'd be better if he be assassinated.

MR. X: Alan, the whole thing we've got to deal with is that, one day, if he continues his course of trying to mobilize Marxist powers in South America, it's going to be a clear --

COLMES: He's very popular with his country.

MR. X: Well, yes and no. But he does --

HANNITY: He's building up weapons against the United States, isn't he?

COLMES: He's extremely popular. Eighty-percent of his country --

MR. X: He's also calling for the destruction of George Bush. He calls him a war criminal.

COLMES: Do you want him taken out?

MR. X: Not now, but one day, one day, one day.

My premise is, and I think as -- you know, until that comment came out, everybody thought Chavez was a fellow having to do with table grapes in California.
That's a quick (and petty) jab at Cesar Chavez, BTW.
MR. X: Now --

HANNITY: I think one thing we could say is, the world would be better off without him where he is, because he is a danger to the United States.

MR. X: Extreme danger.
Alright, kiddos.

Any guesses on Mr' Xs true identity?

Richard Perle? Rummy? The Old Man?

Survey says, "(Buzzer sound indicating a 'negative')."

Mr. X is (trumpet blast)...PAT ROBERTSON.

A religious leader.

"ALLEGEDLY."

There you are, Lord! Where have you been?

"GETTING READY FOR THE BIG GAME, MY SON! 'WE'RE FROM THE TOWN WITH THE GREAT FOOTBALL TEAM, LA DA DA DA, WE CHEER THE PITTSBURGH STEELERS!"

Right.

"BRADSHAW AND ROCKY AND FRANCO AND LYNN, LA DA DA DA -- "

More later --

"GO OUT AND GET THEM STEELERS!"

One last point: Could you imagine...any foreign news program...getting away with a discussion...regarding the assassination of one of our leaders?!

"NOPE."

That's all I'm saying...
