I would like to take this time to say goodbye to Pope Francis. It was nice having you here for a couple of days, and you certainly seemed to inspire the faithful.
I know that some business folks are complaining, but I think Philly shined big time for a national and international audience.
I got a lot of e-mails and texts from friends who are not from here, who were surprised at how beautiful the Benjamin Franklin Parkway looked for the festivities. (For those of you who have ever traveled to Paris, I think that you will agree with me that it [The Parkway] is the closest thing that you will find to the Champs-Élysées. )
Anyway, I hope that American politricksters take heed to the big guy's message of inclusiveness and love.
“I ask you not to forget that, like those who came here before you, you bring many gifts to your new nation. You should never be ashamed of your traditions,” the pope said. “I repeat, do not be ashamed of what is part of you, your lifeblood.”
Yo Donald, check the polls. This Pope guy is stealing your thunder.
Anyway, the Pope certainly inspired John Boehner to find his religion and make some life changing moves. Now the devout Catholic is calling out his fellow wingnut politicians for being "false prophets".
"But the Bible says "Beware of false prophets." There are people out there spreading the noise about how much can get done. This whole idea that we're going to shut down the government to get rid of Obamacare in 2013, that plan never had a chance."
Oh my! Those are strong words from the outgoing speaker. It's a shame it took a message from His Holiness to make him see the light. Now it's too little too late. His legacy has already been tarnished.
Finally, let me end this post with some breaking news: Carly Fiorina just had a stage collapse at a campaign event in Texas.
Calm down Mr. Trump, everyone seems to be alright. You're going to have Carly to contend with for the next few months.
