Color Me Confused

My hero Jon Stewart just informed me that our president just gave the pope a Congressional Medal of Honor.


The Congressional Medal of Honor shouldn't really be going to religious figures anyway, but that's not what's interesting. Oh no. What's interesting is that Bush is the kind of right-wing fundamentalist Protestant that traditionally hates Catholicism.

It just doesn't make sense. You could say he's making a play for his Catholic voters, but most of them--at least in Boston--are ready to have Pope John Paul II's head on a platter right now. (I'm working on a separate post covering this topic. Stay tuned.)

Insight just dawning: Latinos will comprise a record number of voters this year. An analyst on NPR recently said that the Latino population will decide this election. I'll bet Bush is trying to appeal to that demographic...
