The Leiter Reports carries an item about the influential US Republican religious leader Pat Robertson calling for the assassination of the Venezuelan president.
Most of Robertson's argument is incoherent but one part of his meandering and hysteric logic seems particularly odd: "This is in our sphere of influence. We have the Monroe Doctrine, we have other doctrines that we have announced," he announces portentously. Where exactly is not in America's "sphere of influence" nowadays? China, I suppose.
