Okay, that’s my last offer, your holiness…
Blog Guy, after New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson dropped out of the Commerce Secretary nomination, what’s he up to now? I mean apart from being governor.
Well, I just saw some photos of him today. It appears he’s hanging around public places trying to sell jewelery.
Excuse me? That doesn’t sound right. You mean he’s just going up to strangers to see if they want to buy something?
That’s how it looks. You have to give him credit. Today he got through tight Vatican security to try selling a necklace to Pope Benedict XVI.
Amazing. Did the pope buy anything?
I’m not sure, although in the photo it looks like his holiness is driving a hard bargain.
I think this is just more of your lazy reporting. Check the captions, and you’ll see this was a gift.
Of course they would say that. You think they want every Tom, Dick and Harry schlepping jewelery to Saint Peter’s Square?
That’s it. I’m never coming back to this bottomless cesspool of misinformation.
Big talk, but the next time you need to get something wrong, you’ll come crawling back here.
