SOURCES: POPE FAVORED TO WIN ‘NOBEL PEACE PRIZE’… ANNOUNCEMENT EXPECTED THURSDAY

. . . and I thought, “Cool. Finally, the man who leant some real moral weight to the West’s victory in the Cold War is getting his due.”

Silly me.

Here’s the whole story:

Kneejerk support for thuggery got the award for Jimmy Carter last year, so why not the Pope this time around?
