I love a pundit:

For entertainment purposes only. And office pools. Updated as events warrant.
The chance that . . .
Pat Quinn wins the nomination: 95 percent. Still a chance he does something dumb enough to draw Dan Hynes Kwame Raoul Sheila Simon Roland Burris into the race.
Especially when he’s so darn smart. Tombstone Roland, of course!!!
Dick D. and the White House and his wild, wild history:
Mother Earth, please blow thy winds to my left -H. Reid
Hey, we’ve all been there – told a stretcher about something that might, just might mind you, add a little more cayenne to a yarn, but no one has told so many to no good purpose as Illinois Senior U.S. Senator Dick Durbin. He once tried to make the treatment of terrorists by military personal a huge hoop-de-do –
“in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime–Pol Pot or others–that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners.” Durbin 2005
– and ended up with the handle of Durbin the Turban. Ouch.
more more more from the prolific Hickey, who packs so much in so little space while giving new meaning to verbal proficiency . . .
The bishop of Springtown will not, will not be moved:
As reported at Catholic Culture, the bishop made it clear that anyone attempting to enter the cathedral wearing the “rainbow sash” would be denied entrance, and anyone praying out loud for same-sex marriage would be asked to leave.
“It is blasphemy to show disrespect or irreverence to God or to something holy…Since Jesus clearly taught that marriage as created by God is a sacred institution between a man and a woman (see Matthew 19:4-6 and Mark 10:6-9), praying for same-sex marriage should be seen as blasphemous and as such will not be permitted in the cathedral.”
This is really common sense when you get down to it. Using worship space to pressure whom? God? A bishop? None of these. Voters!
This cardinal knows where it’s at:
What – Cardinal George will bless the two new buses purchased by Leo High School following the very successful Leo Express to Opportunity Campaign, which was co-chaired by His Eminence and Mr. Sam Leno ’63.
This independent Catholic school for boys run by (largely Irish) alumni has his support. Go Leo.
