    Are you sure that's all you had to confess? Stop using the Pope to further your blood soaked hands. Greed is also a sin.

    Didn't I hear he offered to take HRC shooting, since she's told us all how much she loves sport shooting? Please Cheney, tell me you really mean it!!!

    What a "elitist"! I am surprised that Cheney can even show his face
    to the American People. But then again, I am sure the Journalists and correspondents love him dearly. Cheney made lots of stories to write
    about when they had "nothing" else to write about. Soon the books
    will be written on the "legacy of this Admin. Hope they tell the truth, then arrest them all.

    I admire him, and I love the way he told wolf he was out of line last year.

    Dang. That's pretty funny. You've got to take it with a grain of salt, considering who's talking here, but that's pretty funny. This guy's attitude & cockiness is legendary.

    This Man is what evil is all about. He has no respect for people of the United States and this is an "Elitist".

    He scares me more than North Korea or Osama Bin Ladin

    I didn't know love was a sin. He's gotten away with murder and no one cares to report it, so what else would he have to confess about except his love of the press?

    Really? A confession to the Pope. Cheney, the pope can't stay
    that long. It would take a month to confess.

    Even if he sins no more we will be stuck for years with the consequences of the his previous sins. If there's a hell...

    The Prince of Darkness talked to the pope?
    I wonder if a black hole opened somewhere.

    I am sure the Pope said two things to Dick Cheney. First, I am,sorry but I am on a tight schedule, and don't have a Month to listen to all your sins, and 2nd, with everything you have done and all the lies you have told, you are still going straight to HELL!

    This story somehow implies Cheny is actually capable of feeling remorse and would actually seek forgivness.

    The legacy of this administration (particularly this sleezebag) has already been documented: see Bush's War on PBS.org

    I'm an agnostic, so I say IF there is a God and he absolves a criminal like Rove with as much unrepentant blood on his hands as he has... I'll never be in that club. The Pope could have exorcised him, but then again there wouldn't be anything left once the demons were gone.
