So the pope landed and expressed "shame" over the priest abuse scandal. Um...that was, like, oh years and years and years ago. I was still living at home, and I haven't called mom and dad's house home for at least 7 years.
So it's really no wonder that he seemed happy to meet the Shrub
As the guide of millions of Catholics around the world, I think maybe he could have tempered his enthusiasm to meet one of worst of the world leaders. I mean, waterboarding, torture, killing thousands of people, slaughtering the English language. Maybe he should be doing a little more "tsk, tsk" wagging of the finger instead of trying to get the wave going.
