Proof that the Pope Is All Law and No Gospel

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.

It's so creepy (fitting perhaps) that the Holy See looks like Emperor Palpatine.
