Emperor Palpatine

Am I the only one who thinks Pope Benedict looks like the evil emperor from Star Wars?  Except that..you know Palpatine’s not quite as evil.  Headline from Yahoo! News today:  Pope Has Immunity In Abuse Trials: Vatican.

Really?  That’s your strategy?  Claim diplomatic immunity?  And then claim you’re being attacked by the NYT?  Yeah, that’ll work.


Oh, wait, it gets better.  It looks like Bill Donahue of the Catholic League has climbed out from under his rock to let us know the priests aren’t pedophiles since the victims are mostly post-pubescent.  Thanks for clearing that up, Bill.  Important distinction.
