    how dare this human garbage talk about confessions, even as a joke.

    there arent enough heartbeats left in his tiny, shrivelled-up, black heart to get him through 1/3 of the things this beast needs to CONFESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Did you confess to shooting your friend in the face on purpose?

    Cmon Cheney, you know you wanted to do it.

    I think the American people would like Cheney to confess that he and GWB have not served this country in the best interest of the country and then leave office, now.

    That's not possible: it would take the Pope's entire trip to America and then some for Cheney to confess all his sins.

    His comments were sickening. For him to joke about him using a hybrid ambulance as his contribution to his carboon footprint is sick.

    All of the people here are painfully liberal and anti-conservative.

    Time to see how well the Pope remembers how to carry out an exorcism. Please, your holiness, drop by the White House and dole out some Vatican Healing, Chuck Norris style!

    As usual, you liberals have no sense of humor.
    Would you honestly rather have Bin Ladin babysitting your chidren one night, than Cheney?

    Very funny. Really a nice man and a dedicated public servant. The liberal press has been extremely unfair to him. I'd go hunting with him any day.

    Really?

    He couldn't tell the truth, even if he was confessing confidentially to the pope.

    Chronic liars cannot tell the truth even when their soul is at stake!

    You are right to confess to god, but there is no way we can know if you told the truth. You lied to us about Iraq and took us to a costly war.

    I dont' even believe you told the pope the truth.

    HILLARY & HANNITY BOTH CLAIM THAT THEY ARE SERVANTS OF GOD,THE BIBLE SAY NOT TO PUT A STUMBLEBLOCK IN NO ONE WAY ,AND NOT TO SLANDER.IT'S NOT WHAT GOES IN A PERSON THAT DEFILES HIM BUT WHAT COME OUT OF HIM.
