Leg-press for Jesus

On a brighter note, my favourite right-wing loon, the PT Barnum of modern-day Christendom, puttin' the fun back into fundamentalism, is at it again: the inimitable Pat Robertson flogs an Age-Defying Shake (what, no ™?), and it sounds like potent stuff:

Did you know that Pat Robertson, through rigorous training, leg-pressed 2,000 pounds! How did he do it?

Where does Pat find the time and energy to host a daily, national TV show, head a world-wide ministry, develop visionary scholars, while traveling the globe as a statesman?

One of Pat's secrets to keeping his energy high and his vitality soaring is his age-defying protein shake. Pat developed a delicious, refreshing shake, filled with energy-producing nutrients.

As this article points out, though, the Florida State University record is only 1335 pounds, and the record-holder had to have the leg press machine specially kitted to hold the weight, and the record-holder got burst capillaries in his eyes from the effort.

Although that would explain Pat's handsome squint.
