I don't think the far right has too many liberal pundits. They do have Rush Limbaugh, though, who acceded the pope of spouting communist ideas. I'd say anyone who can piss off Rush can't be all bad, but it seems ANYONE can piss off Rush. He's too easy.

I meant they have their pundits too, Lol.  I don't waste too much time listening to Limbaugh either, I do like Chris Christie of NJ, won't 2016 be interesting if he runs...

Number five, Are you surprised by Time magazine's pick for person of the year? No, but it is the "safe" choice. I love Pope Frank, but I am on Team Snowden on this one.

"I truly doubt this pope will compromise church principles for social justice." -------- According to many Christians church principles should coincide with social justice. It should certainly not be one against the other. How would social justice compromise church principles?

Jams, with something like gay marriage, for example, it would really not be against church principles if the church just stayed out of it instead of actively railing against it. There is the time-honored principle of "give unto Caesar" after all. It would only be against church principles if the actual Vatican decided to PERFORM gay marriages, something nobody has suggested they do.

Huh? Of course the catholic church stays out of gay marriage. Context means a lot mops, I believe that link you've copied is from my quote of where the Pope and Maddow differ.  He's a people's pope which is a wonderful thing but he won't gamble church principles.

Do you send Christmas cards?

Yes, I do.  That is my goal to finish this weekend actually.

What is your favorite holiday movie?

Miracle on 34th Street, either version.

Do you  have a favorite holiday cookie?

Yes, those peanut butter ones with a kiss on top.  Not "holiday" but they are the best, so sad that I can't bake any right now.

What's for dinner on Christmas?

I don't know, not cooking.  The tradition has been for prime rib, twice baked potatoes, creamed spinach, crab cakes, lobster and some veggies.

Number five, Are you surprised by Time magazine's pick for person of the year? 

I had to look it up, lol.  No, not surprised as I believe he will shake up the Catholic Church by dealing with the problems of the world and the church, not pretending they don't exsist.

Me too, and I'm in total denial over the live version ever happening.
