CNN just reported that our Imperial President is making plans for a triumphal entry into Rome to attend the Pope's funeral-- the first president to ever do so. Think he will bring the elephants? Or maybe the Schindlers, riding the elephants.
Is there no limit to the hubris of the Chimperor? Of course there isn't. Bush will make the funeral about HIM. In Bushworld, the passing of John Paul II is just the mother of all opportunities to gain "traction" with Catholics, Hispanics, and Randall Terrorists in this country.
We know how our sycophantic media will cover his trip: "President Bush, the Man of Faith, honors the Pope with First Presidential Attendance at Papal Funeral." Bush will be quoted as commending the Pope for his "commitment to Life and Freedom, just like me!
"God is not on your side if you invade Iraq." - Pope John Paul II, to George Bush.
