Any comment I apply to this one would get me branded anti-Catholic – as though I’m “for” any religion…..What really kills me, is the first article I saw on this, was this piece of apologist trype for the Pope.
Really, we’re well out of the dark ages, can’t we just start ignoring this guy now? What use or value to the world does the title of Pope have or is he just a Faith Based Celebrity? (Not. One. Crack. about the gucci shoes. Promise.)
Yet another “religious” body attempting to parley influence into a foreign country (yes, Utah and California are different countries. Test me on this.) with “Scary Old Man in the Sky” whinging.

And finally…
Wired publishes it’s 2008 Foot in mouth awards…and it irritates me. Two points in particular:
1. “Well, I don’t think John McCain could run a major corporation, I don’t think Barack Obama could run a major corporation, I don’t think Joe Biden could run a major corporation,” Fiorina told CNN as a way of backing up her belief that Sarah Palin wouldn’t have been good at running HP.
The only problem was that Fiorina was one of the most prominent McCain campaign advisers and surrogates.

So what’s the issue? A campaign staffer having the *GASP* audacity to speak her mind. The Horror!

2. Obama did manage to taste the leather of his own shoes, however, thanks to Mayhill Fowler, an undercover blogger for The Huffington Post who famously secretly taped him explaining Middle America bitterness to San Francisco donors.

You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

The candidate Speaking His Mind? Without a cavalcade of yes-men and -women censoring and sanitizing everything he says? Oh NOES!!!!!
