Pat Tillman: He’s not with God ..

November 10, 2010

I don’t know Pat Tillman (nor his story), but I was impressed with the kahunas demonstrated by his brother (Richard) on a recent episode of Real Time (with Bill Maher). So much so that I thought it worth repeating.

Maher set up the clip…

“But, you know, they had Maria Shriver and John McCain… Speaking there, and Maria said, “Pat, you are home. You are safe.” And McCain said, “You will see Pat again when a loving God reunites us all with our loved ones.”

Then came a clip of Richard Tillman speaking at the funeral while nearly crying ..

“Thank you for coming. Pat’s a fucking champion and always will be. Just make a mistake, he’d want me to say this. He’s not with God. He’s fucking dead. He’s not religious. So thanks for your thoughts, but he’s fucking dead.”

If Richard’s integrity is anything to go by, Pat was quite the loss.

The whole show can be heard here (start 12m 10s)
