Dumb. Just dumb.

I am informed that some idiot at CNN thinks it would be a good idea for the Pope to be chosen by popular vote, and actually polled people about this. The good news is out of the ten people they showed on the tube, only one thought it was a good idea.

Personally, I think it would be suitable revenge on the American news media if Cardinal Ratzinger and the lads took a variety of smoke grenades into the Sistine Chapel so they could mess with the talking heads..."Geraldo, we're seeing...purple smoke?"

Update OTOH, Father Neuhaus' Rome Diary is very much worth reading, and not merely for his snarky comment on the recent wedding of Prince Charles. (Via Professor Bainbridge. Come for the snark, stay for the analysis! ^_^)
