Something not right about dressing an 18 month old baby as a pope. Sacrilegious? This provocative pope should not have encouraged it by making it a media event. I applaud the baby for bawling his head off. The pope to the baby could be quite frightening. I think this is one of the better visceral reactions we have seen to this pope. Cracked me up. Kind of confirms my oft stated view that this pope, however hard he tries, doesn’t have the avuncularity of ‘Good Pope’ John XXIII or the innate warmth of John Paul I.

I would have preferred to see the kid dressed as Batman, Superman or failing all of that, as Obama — of course, with a darkened face.
