Who Should Be the Next Pope?
MSNBC Panelist Pitches Sotomayor

National Review Online, by Andrew Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/18/2013 1:54:44 PM

On MSNBC Live over the weekend, New York magazine’s contributing editor Chris Smith toyed with the idea of Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor as the next pope. “Here’s a trifecta: Latin, female, American. It would do a lot of good,” Smith said. “That’s not going to happen, but it would speak to some of the issues about how the Church needs to open itself up.” He added that finding someone who “has mixed it up in the real world . . . would be a good thing for whoever is pope” and believes

I am F´ing sick and tired of being told we need to open ourselves up ... meaning we have to bend over and grab our ankles for some totally unqualified black or hispanic just because they´re black or hispanic. Intense times are coming.

The truly sad (and very scary) thing is that Chris Smith is probably serious.

The Church needs to open up? When people take on the mindset that unity and acceptance are more important than truth, they have completely misunderstood the person of Jesus Christ.

Applying politics of inclusion to faith. Really just a chance to lambaste the Church for not allowing women to become priests. I found myself wondering why someone of faith from Latin America would find it inspiring for a liberal, with no history of religious beliefs or works, from the US would be named Pope.

It is one thing to be ignorant, and stupid, and keep your mouth shut to make people guess.
But to open your pie-hole, and prove beyond a doubt; there is no depth to the ignorance of your subject, and the insane stupidity expressed by proving it once an for all. Chris is nothing more than an empty, talking head.

How well did "opening up" work for mainstream Protestant churches? They are pro-gay, pro-abortion and pro everything else that´s deviant. Episcopalian, Anglican, Methodist and Presbyterian churches are lucky if a couple dozen people show up on Sunday morning. Meanwhile the mean old closed up Catholic churches are standing room only.

If you believe in nothing, you´ll believe anything.

Sotomayor´s big beef is growing up in the projects. To build the projects neighborhoods were ripped up and millions spent on building poor-quality buildings with money wasted on politicians and their pals. Crime is out of control because of oversight by liberal judges and the ACLU. She does come off as a nice decent woman. My nomination for pope would be Jeremy Irons but me and MSNBC do not have a dog in this hunt.

President Obama golfed on Saturday with former NBA player Alonzo Mourning and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad after discussing the military tensions in Ukraine with foreign leaders. The commander-in-chief skipped out of Washington this weekend to vacation with his family in Key Largo, Fla. The White House said Obama placed calls to leaders in countries such as Britain, France, Italy, Lithuania, Latvian and Estonia before he hit the links. Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida.

Zaid Jilani, a former blogger with the left-wing think tank Center for American Progress, explained this week how the Obama administration frequently tries to censor the progressive organization’s content when it departs from the White House’s agenda. Jiliani was reacting to two on-air protests by journalists opposed to Russia’s invasion of southern Ukraine. The two worked for Russia Today (RT) — an English-speaking media outlet funded directly by Moscow — and felt their bosses were trying to censor their opinions. In a post titled, ”How Working in Washington Taught Me We’re All A Little Like RT America,” Jilani explained how

Speaking at CPAC on Friday, the star of 2016: Obama´s America said that Obama did not create American progressivism, but was instead deeply shaped by it and its "moral attack on capitalism." And that is why it is a mistake to brush him off as a bumbling amateur. Obama, he said, knows exactly what he is doing. "The point about Obama is that he is someone who wants to shrink America´s footprint in the world," he said. "He wants to remake America." Modern progressives like Obama, D´Souza said, believe

As the Clintons gear up for what appears to be a 2016 presidential run, journalists are already downplaying the potential negatives Bill Clinton would create for Hillary. According to the Washington Times, the former President has cashed in on a non-profit hospital, taking nearly a quarter million dollars in speaking fees as the hospital laid off hundreds. Writer Jim McElhatton explained, "Bill Clinton accepted a $225,000 speaking fee from the nonprofit Washington Hospital Center smack in the middle of two big rounds of layoffs in 2012." He added, "The $225,000 payment wasn´t made public by the hospital on its annual Internal

You would think that MSNBC hosts might not want to invite Bill Press on their shows to talk about supposedly inflammatory conservative rhetoric, given Press’s track record of vile left-wing bile. But on Thursday, host Al Sharpton once again invited Press onto PoliticsNation to discuss what the reverend called conservatives’ “ugly, very ugly attacks on the president over the crisis in Ukraine.” [Video below.

Sixty-five percent of people support the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline between the United States and Canada, a new poll finds. A Washington Post-ABC News poll released Friday shows only 22 percent are opposed to the project. The poll shows there has been little movement in support or opposition to the pipeline in the last year. A Pew poll last April found 66 percent backed construction. Majorities of every political party back the pipeline, with Republicans most in favor. Eighty-two percent of Republicans back the effort, while 65 percent of independents and 51 percent of Democrats feel the same.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) apologized Thursday to his committee´s ranking Democratic member for cutting off his microphone at the end of a hearing Wednesday, according to a local report. Issa told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he personally apologized to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.). His apology comes after the House earlier Thursday voted down a motion to censure the chairman for his treatment of Cummings. Issa ended a hearing on the IRS scandal Wednesday despite Cummings´s attempt to make a statement and ask a question. When Cummings persisted in his effort to speak, Issa personally cut

Facing legal action, the State Department on Friday responded to a request for documents about the qualifications of President Obama´s ambassadorial nominees. The American Foreign Service Association, the labor union for career diplomats, has been dissatisfied with the backgrounds of several recent administration picks for ambassadorships and on Thursday threatened to file suit against State for withholding information about their qualifications. Last summer, AFSA filed a Freedom of Information Act request for “Certificates of Demonstrated Competence” that the State Department fills out and submits to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee before nomination hearings. It requested the certificates for every ambassador

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa joined Megyn Kelly Thursday night to react to the uproar over him cutting off Elijah Cummings‘ mic during a contentious IRS hearing, saying that accusations he was “racist” are just “beneath response.” Issa suggested Cummings’ outburst was a “pre-staged event,” but Kelly asked, “Who cares? Let him have his couple of minutes to rip on you! You’re a big guy, you can take it!” He acknowledged that in hindsight, he might have let Cummings rant, but it’s completely unjustified for any member of Congress to try and get his chairmanship revoked over the incident

So, Lois Lerner still won´t talk about her role in the illegal targeting and harassment by the IRS of conservative and Tea Party groups seeking 501(c)(4) tax exemptions. Lerner appeared for a second time Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and claimed her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself. It isn´t hard to figure out why Lerner´s lips are sealed. First, she knows the House of Representatives can cite her for contempt of Congress, but Attorney General Eric Holder would decide whether she is prosecuted on that charge.

McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) apologized Thursday to his committee´s ranking Democratic member for cutting off his microphone at the end of a hearing Wednesday, according to a local report. Issa told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he personally apologized to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.). His apology comes after the House earlier Thursday voted down a motion to censure the chairman for his treatment of Cummings. Issa ended a hearing on the IRS scandal Wednesday despite Cummings´s attempt to make a statement and ask a question. When Cummings persisted in his effort to speak, Issa personally cut

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

The White House said the US president told his Russian counterpart that Russia’s actions were a violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. During the hour-long phone call, President Obama urged Russian forces to return to their bases. The White House said it hoped the crisis could be settled diplomatically and urged the Russian and Ukrainian governments to hold direct talks in an effort to find a settlement. The President called for an agreement which would protect the interests of both Ukrainians and ethnic Russians living in Ukraine. This was the second phone call between the two leaders in a

The millionaire attorney funding a ‘spoiled’ cheerleader’s lawsuit against her own parents let the teenager drink in his house, threw ‘alcoholic parties’ and apparently allowed her to have her first drop of booze, according to court documents. When Rachel Canning was a 15-year-old freshman she got so drunk on vodka at Jon Inglesino’s home that she was sick all over the sidewalk and into a garbage can after her dad Sean picked her up for a basketball game. And according to the Canning family, Inglesino’s wife Amy gave Rachel and her friends wine coolers in the back of a limo

Sarah Palin, the tea-party-darling former Alaska governor who ran for vice president in 2008, is leaving the door open for a president run in 2016. ´It depends on what it is that Americans really, really want in a candidate,´ Palin said Friday night. ´If they want a fighter, if they want someone who can so respect our exceptionalism, everything that makes America great, the promise of America. And if we don´t find that, then I would run.´ [Snip] Asked who her favorite presidential hopefuls are so far, she singled out Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul while

A Georgia Tech graduate student who set himself on fire while apparently experimenting with bomb-making elements in his apartment last month has died, officials confirmed Thursday. Saamer Akhshabi, an Iranian national, had burns on more than 90 percent of his body following the February 4 explosion in his apartment near the university, where Akhshabi was studying in the College of Computing. [Snip] ´The FBI has relayed that, to date, they have not developed any information or evidence indicating criminal intent in this investigation.´ Law enforcement officials determined that Akhshabi wasn´t a threat to the Georgia Tech community, but it remains
