    He’s the only politician I trust at all. Honest enough to say what he believes and vote that way.

    So in case you’re keeping score at home, here at CAEI it’s…

    Number of Catholic GOP Congressmen boycotting the Pope’s address: 1
    Number of Catholic GOP Congressmen lauding the Pope’s visit: 1

    Your job is to figure out which one of these guys is held up as representative of the broader GOP, and which one is the exception.

      Would that be the broader GOP where Donald Trump and Ben Carson are lapping the field?

      • ManyMoreSpices

        Why don’t you tell me what Trump and Carson have said about the Holy Father? I promise I’ll get back to you with an answer.

        • Willard

          I’m not aware that they have. What does that have to do with the “broader” GOP where Trump and Carson are lapping the field?

          • ManyMoreSpices

            If the Republicans who are “lapping the field” haven’t said anything bad about the Pope, you can’t use their success as evidence that the “broader” GOP hates the Pope.

            We can, however, use this a data point in the broad pattern of reflexive, uninformed disparagement of the American right that has become coin of the realm here at CAEI.

    I’ve heard him speak at the March for Life, and I think more than once. I’m pleased that he’s written such a magnanimous welcome to our Holy Father.
