Are they on the wrong planet ...or am I?

The African bishops of the Anglican Church, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Bob Allen, Pope Benedict XVI, the government of Cameroon, Dick Cheney, Ann Coulter, Larry Craig, Rudy Giuliani, Ted Haggard, Tim Hardaway, Paris Hilton, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, John Howard, Mike Huckabee, Don Imus, LeBron James, Jim McGreevey, Dina McGreevey, John McCain, Donnie McClurkin, Glenn Murphy Jr, Jim Naugle, Scott Lively, the mayor of Moscow, Rupert Murdoch, Bill O'Reilly, Ge. Peter Pace, Billy Packer, Rene Portland, Vladimir Putin, Bill Richardson, Mitt Romney, Karl Rove, Arnold Schwarzenegger, OJ Simpson, Leslie Southwick, Clarence Thomas, John Travolta, Donald Trump, Mark Wahlberg, Isaiah Washington, Rowan Williams...

...and this is just the short list. Where's Julie Andrews singing "My Favorite Things" when you need her?

Now I read that the Pope not once but twice has declared that the biggest threat to world peace is not global warming, North Korea, Vladimir Putin's suggesting he'd like to scrap all the nuclear non-proliferation treaties and outfit Russia with some new nukes (having enough to blow up the Earth a dozen times over isn't enough? Or have they "lost" all their old ones?),the generals of Myanmar, Hugo Chavez, the People's Republic of China, Sudan's genocide in Darfur, the political unrest in Pakistan, or Israel's occupation of the Palestinian Territories... it's gay people!

Am I suffering from seasonal affected disorder? Or do I just need some chocolate? When do I not need chocolate? Maybe the Pope needs some chocolate. Maybe he should read a newspaper printed after the 14th century.
