The Pope & Nancy Pelosi are on the same stage in front of a huge crowd.
The Madame Speaker & The Pope, however, have seen it all before.
To make it a little more interesting, Madame Speaker says to the Pope, “Did You know that with just one little wave of my hand I can make every Democrat in the crowd go wild?”
He doubts it, so she shows him. Sure enough, the wave elicits rapture & cheering from every democrat in the crowd. Gradually, the cheering subsides.
The Pope, not wanting to be outdone by such a level of arrogance, considers what he could do…
“That was impressive, the Pope says, “But did you know that with just one little wave of MY hand I can make many people in the crowd, & many around the world, go crazy with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display like that of your subjects, but will go deep into their hearts, & they will forever speak of this day & rejoice.”
The speaker seriously doubts this, & says so. “One little wave of your hand & so many people will rejoice forever? Show me.” So the Pope slapped her.
The rest of the world cannot understand how, after bitter election campaigns, American politicians can kiss and make up. But the election is over and it’s time to repair friendships with the other party. Governor Sarah Palin is doing her part to do just that.
For instance, Gov. Palin has invited to her great state of Alaska the men who defeated her, Barack Obama and Joe Biden, along with their wives. She has set up a moose-hunting trip for their enjoyment and hired three prominent experts in their field to assist them.
Dick Cheney will carry the gun, Ted Kennedy will drive them back to their cabins each evening, and Bill Clinton will entertain their wives while they’re out hunting.
Sarah is such a sport and thinks of everything! What a lady!
