Lis Smith of the Obama campaign just tweeted:

One day after endorsing @SteveKingIA, @MittRomney's now campaigning with Pat Robertson on stage in Virginia Beach.
(Note: in the video, Robertson's right behind Romney, you can see Pat as Willard paces back and forth)

So, on the occasion of Romney's second day in a row of palling around with bigots and lunatics, I thought I'd remind everyone of just a (very) few of the many, many insane, hateful, bigoted things "Bobby" McDonnell's "good friend"  - and obviously Willard Romney's big-time supporter now - has said recently and over the years.

*Robertson Blames "Satanic" Atheists for Wisconsin Shooting
*Robertson Says Gay Rights Advocates Should "Shut Their Mouth"
*Robertson recently went on a bizarre rant against adoption
*Robertson said about Todd Akin's "legitimate rape" comments, that Akin "apologized," so "let's get on with life."
*Pat Robertson: Falls Church Episcopal Church Lost "Blessing of God" Over Gay Bishop
*Robertson has engaged in insane talk and hate speech against numerous groups. For instance, Robertson said that feminism is "a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians." He also said, "You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense, I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist." And that Planned Parenthood "is teaching kids to fornicate, teaching people to have adultery, every kind of bestiality, homosexuality, lesbianism – everything that the Bible condemns."
*Top 10 Craziest Things Ever Said By Pat Robertson - Including classics like the earthquake in Haiti had something to do with Haitians supposedly having "swor[n] a pact with the devil; like Hurricane Katrina supposedly was related to "the wholesale slaughter of innocent children;" like totally concurring with his friend Jerry Falwell that the 9/11 attacks were the fault of the ACLU, "abortionists," "pagans," "feminists," "gays," "lesbians," People for the American Way, anyone who tries to "secularize America."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
