Sad as it is, we live in a world that continues to allow conservative televangelist Pat Robertson to have a public soapbox, and more often than not he uses that platform to spew ignorant, closed-minded stupidity. It would be funny, but sometimes things are too ridiculous for even that.

This is one of those times.

Proving himself to be a misogynist -- yet again -- Robertson took some time on his show ‘The 700 Club’ to blame Paula Broadwell for leading General David Petraeus astray.

That's because it’s always the chick’s fault, you guys. Even the leader of the most powerful military in the world is no match for a she-devil.

According to Robertson, the General is in a land far, far away. He’s been gone from his wife. He's lonely. There’s a woman. An “extremely good looking” woman. He’s spending a lot of time with this woman. She’s “throwing herself at him." So of course he’s going to have an affair with her. Derp.

Women are the spawn of Satan. It’s a tale as old as time, or at least as old as Pat Robertson. He's solved the mystery. It was clearly Broadwell’s fault. What was Petraeus to do?

We can't explain it any further. You just have to watch the video to believe it.

We should listen to Robertson more often. After all, he’s the man who once told a concerned wife to be more attentive to her husband and not hassle him about his flirtations with other women. He’s also the man who didn't understand the runaway success of '50 Shades of Grey' because he couldn't fathom that women might -- gasp! -- have an interest in erotica.

And lest you forget, he's the man who once wrote that feminism “is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”

In other words, he's obviously a man in tune with society and the modern female.

As for his co-hosts, it must be some sort of a feat of womanhood to sit with Robertson at this '700 Club' desk and chat with him about social issues. It’s the last rite of passage for ladyhood.

Job ... check. Family ... check. Invasive preventative medical procedures ... check. Talk with Pat Robertson without murderous lesbionic witchcraft ... check. Congratulations! You’re a woman.

Keep talking, dude. While you're busy blaming global warming on the gays, we'll just be safe and secure in the knowledge that it's all that hot air you're blowing instead.
