The Distorted Media

Posted Saturday, October 25, 2008, at 9:58 AM

I got the following email and want to share...

Sarah Palin is invited to meet with the Pope while he is vacationing south of Rome in Venice .

The liberal press reluctantly watches the semi-private audience, hoping they will be able to allot minimal coverage, if any.

The Pope asks Governor Palin to join him on a Gondola ride through the canals of Venice .

They're admiring the sights and agreeing on moral issues when all of a sudden the Pope's hat (zucchetto) blows off his head and out into the water.

The gondolier starts to reach for the Pontiff's hat with his pole, but this move threatens to overturn the floating craft.

Sarah waves the tour guide off, saying, 'Wait, wait. I'll take care of this. Don't worry.'

She steps off the gondola onto the surface of the water and walks out to the Pope's hat, bends over and picks it up. She walks back across the water to the gondola and steps aboard. She hands the hat to the Pope amid stunned silence.

The next morning the topic of conversation among Democrats in Congress, CBS News, NBC News, ABC News, CNN, the New York Times, Hollywood celebrities, and in France and Germany is...

...'Palin Can't Swim.'

See how easy it is for the Pope to control the news?

Point well made. Arley Steinhour

This, much like Palin's candidacy, was a good joke.

I enjoy your blog, Brian. It's a great read.

Thanks for sharing.

Here is another story you might like. God has had enough with the World. God blessed the Earth, and we turned or back on Him. God announces that He will end the World tommorrow.

The Washington Post then runs a headline:

WORLD TO END TOMMORROW! WOMEN AND BLACKS TO SUFFER MOST!
