Subject: Saint Nancy
Last Saturday afternoon, in Washington, D.C., an aide to Nancy Pelosi visited the Bishop of the Catholic cathedral in D.C. He told the Cardinal that Nancy Pelosi would be attending the next day's Mass, and he asked if the Cardinal would kindly point out Pelosi to the congregation and say a few words that would include calling Pelosi a saint.

The Cardinal replied, "No. I don't really like the woman, and there are issues of conflict with the Catholic Church over certain of Pelosi's views."

Pelosi's aide then said, "Look, I'll write a check here and now for a donation of $100,000 to your cathedral if you'll just tell the congregation you see Pelosi as a saint."

The Cardinal thought about it and said, "Well, the Church can use the money, so I'll work your request into tomorrow's sermon."

As Pelosi's aide promised, Nancy Pelosi appeared for the Sunday worship and seated herself prominently at the forward left side of the center aisle. As promised, at the start of his sermon, the Cardinal pointed out that Ms. Pelosi was present.

The Cardinal went on to explain to the congregation, "While Ms. Pelosi's presence is probably an honor to some, the woman is not numbered among my personal favorite personages. Some of her most egregious views are contrary to tenets of the Church, and she tends to flip-flop on many other issues.

Nancy Pelosi is a petty, self -absorbed hypocrite, a thumb sucker, and a nit-wit. Nancy Pelosi is also a serial liar, a cheat, and a thief. I must say, Nancy Pelosi is the worst example of a Catholic I have ever personally witnessed. She married for money and is using her wealth to lie to the American people.

She also has a reputation for shirking her Representative obligations both in Washington , and in California . The woman is simply not to be trusted."

The Cardinal concluded, “But, when compared with President Obama, Ms. Pelosi is a saint.”

Boy, these guys never miss a trick, do they?

says the pedophile "priest" probably living in a mansion.

Somehow using the RC Church as some kind of moral exemplar to compare against Nancy Pelosi seems, uh, off the mark, to say the least. Kind of like using David Vitter, John Ensign and Newt Gingrich to make preachy moralistic outraged remarks about Bill Clinton & Monica Lewinsky. Oh wait... guess conservatives make a habit and fetish out of being completely hypocritical.

PS Disclaimer: no love lost on my part vis Nancy Pelosi, but I wouldn't use a dumb not-joke like this to express why I dislike her politics. I don't really care about Pelosi personally.

Whoever wrote this joke is definitely NOT a Roman Catholic.

During mass, the priest (Cardinal in this case) gives a homily and not a SERMON.

As for the "joke".....Yawn.

I've always found Nancy Pelosi to be a surprisingly effective Congressional leader. Agree with her or not, she does know how to get things done.

Pity it was Harry Reid, rather than Nancy Pelosi, who was in charge of the Senate for the past six years.

ooh ooh ooh do Harry Reid next please!!!!

I generally like Pelosi, as I think she has a black belt in politics, but her 'impeachment is off the table' remark after Bush the Lesser's debacle had me very disappointed. The bad guys skated after their heinous crimes and betrayals. That sent a very ominous message.

There is not a shadow of doubt that there was a dirty backroom deal involved. And we'll never know, that is also without a doubt.
