Pope Francis Wants To Be President Of The World
OK, that’s not a real job, but he is seeking to lead the global conversation.
From the article:
He hasn’t announced his candidacy.
Indeed, the job he seeks doesn’t really exist.
But shrewdly, methodically and with a showman’s flair, the soft-spoken, 78-year-old Argentinian Jesuit priest named Jorge Mario Bergoglio — Pope Francis — showed Thursday that he is running to become president of the planet.
He did so in a congressional ceremony of secular civic pomp in a massive legislative building that, after all, harks back to ancient Rome.
The first beast rears it ugly head. Again.
Maybe it’s just me but it’s as though this is reported in a joking manner. But this is no joke.
