    Curious: did Blitzer comment on the reactions to his piece?

    Just ONCE I would love to hear someone give that response to a reporter who asks a disaster victim if he/she is grateful to God that they survived. It would be a hoot!

    As a cyborg I don’t think Blitzer has received the programming to respond to the piece. There is hope he will be implanted with a chip that allows him to display human emotion.

    Initially we had high hopes for a creation of a robocop, but the best we could do was a roboreporter.

    Dude, less dissing cyborgs. Hell, Eliza could probably do better than him.

    i concur. let us have more cyborg newscasters, and fewer “blitzers.”

    “God?… what, He Who caused this mess? No, I thank the science, the system, and the people who could deliver sufficient warning.”

    I’m just worried Wolf Blitzer will end up killing John Connor, then what hope does humanity have against Skynet?

  • John Conolley

    My answer:
    What act of God do you think I should be thanking him for? Blowing my house down? Endangering my family? Terrifying my husband? Or sending an idiot to interview me? Get away from me, you jackass.

    Look, it was Oklahoma, and as Maher said, he’d probably spent the entire day hearing people say, “Thank the Lord!”, so he was expecting it, and very likely just wanted to get the interviews over with and get back on the plane.

    A lone Irish-American cop according to the crossover I remember reading.

    I hate it when people use guns to murder replicans
