1966: Mao Tse Tung, at 73, claims to swim some 9 miles across the Yangtze River.
2006: Pat Robertson claims to have leg-pressed 2,000 pounds at the age of 73.
One would think that Robertson’s people would have vetted this hilarious irony with their dear leader. But I like to think that there’s an insider working at The 700 Club with a marvelous sense of humor.
