Flirting with the Pope 

Josh Marshall has the dirt on Bush's request for campaign support from the Pope, via Catholic bishops in the U.S. Here is the background, and here is Marshall's take on what exactly Bush might be gunning for.

Bottom line, more or less: Bush is asking the Pope to instruct American bishops to denounce Kerry from the pulpit. Why? Because Kerry is pro-choice. Never mind the Church's stances on war and the death penalty....

One wonders when or if, not to mention how, the Pope will respond. That is, one wonders such things if one has a borderline obsessive interest in monitoring the bizarre and reckless behaviors of the Bush administration. Fun fun fun...
