In giving up the papacy, Pope Benedict XVI was brave and bold. He did the unexpected for the good of the Catholic Church. And when it selects a new pope next month, the College of Cardinals should be equally brave and bold. It is time to elect a nun as the next pontiff.
In this “Daily Show” special feature, “Blessed Week Ever,” Jon Stewart surveys the American media’s scintillating coverage of Pope Benedict XVI’s visit, from brilliant observations about the pope’s “gentle” ways to the glory of his White House visit, and offers his own take on just what President Bush might have said upon first meeting the pontiff. Popemania!
