A profile of elaborate huckster Pat Robertson. Here's the introduction to the article from the VQR blog:

Sizemore looks at Roberton's weight-loss diet shakes, his Liberian diamond-mining operation, African gold-mining operation, his Cayman Island for-profit corporation, and his role in the US attorney appointments scandal. In short, Sizemore doesn't find much to like about the man.

And here's a fun little snippet about how they were planning for the broadcast of the second coming of Jesus:

We even discussed how Jesus' radiance might be too bright for the cameras and how we would have to make adjustments for that problem. Can you imagine telling Jesus, 'Hey, Lord, please tone down your luminosity; we're having a problem with contrast. You're causing the picture to flare.'

If only toning down the luminosity of Jesus were that simple.
