This just confirms my deepest suspicions . . .
Politicians have learned that all-too important lesson not to be photographed in certain situations--like Michael Dukakis doing the head-bob with the tanker's helmet, or John Kerry in his blue sani-suit crawling through the Space Shuttle mock up.
Theologians probably ought to take note of this principle. It may have seemed like a good idea at the time . . . but the Pope with a cop's hat? Not a good idea.
