Not much has been happening Gaggle-wise, sporatic pressers at best, the corps asking questions that won't get answered, you know, biz as usual. Here's a peek at yesterday's do-nothing-say-nothing:

Q Does the President have any plans at all to meet with Cindy Sheehan? And what did you think about the latest, you know, thing where the crosses were destroyed along the road?

MS. PERINO: The President said in his -- last Thursday, when he spoke to you all after the defense meeting, that he sympathizes with her, he has met with her before. He said that one of the most cherished rights in America is the right to free speech and that she has a right to express her views. He does not agree with her views, but he says he respects her right to peacefully protest. But, other than that, I have nothing more to add.
Bi'atch won't even comment on criminal mischief done in Bush's name.

And then there's the underage sex suit:

Q Dana, this just came in -- lawyers for the Pope have asked President Bush to grant him immunity as a head of state concerning a church sex abuse lawsuit in Texas in which the Pope is named as a defendant. Reitzinger is named as an individual in the lawsuit, not as a cardinal or Pope, and was successfully served with the lawsuit earlier this year. Is President Bush inclined to grant him the immunity in that?

MS. PERINO: As you know, I've been sitting here. That breaking news just happened, so I'll have to get back to you.

Yeah, pardon the Pope, bike with Lance, ignore a grieving mother while the world watches. That's our Pretzeldent!

Re: the Pope Scope

Un. Fucking. Believable.

And yet it's happening.

So--If God talks to Bush and the Pope, and Bush pardons the Pope, who pardons Bush?

Jerry Falwell?

I support entirely what Cindy Sheehan is doing. I do NOT agree with her assesment that Monkey-Boy deserves some kind of credit for his "faith." Faith IS a huge part of the problem. Blind faith is what the Right has going for them. Why do you need superstition to guide foreign policy? The intellectual barbarians that comprise the right wing do not deserve any credit for having "faith" nor should the opponents of war give them any ground on this subject. Religious faith is quaint, but we have all the proof we need that it is best kept out of public policy.
