Actually, I think it was the Danish PM taking the selfie!
In other news, Palin appeared on the Christian Broadcasting Network to bore the pants off of everyone with her “reason for the season” and her “plastic Jewish family” blather. She offers nothing new and is wrong all of the time. She is looking extremely scary. If I opened my door at night and saw this thing on my doorstep, I would have to wonder whether it was Halloween.
And to add insult to injury for Palin, Pope Francis has been named Time Magazine Person of the Year.
Pope Francis has been named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2013.
The magazine credited him with shifting the message of the Catholic Church while capturing the “imaginations of millions” who had become disillusioned with the Vatican.
“So much of what he has done in his brief nine months in office has really changed the tone of what is coming out of the Vatican,” Time Editor Nancy Gibbs said in announcing the choice on NBC’s Today programme.
“He is saying: ’We are about the healing mission of the church, and not about the theological police work’.”
“This new Pope may have found a way out of the 20th century culture wars, which have left the church moribund in much of Western Europe and on the defensive from Dublin to Los Angeles,” it added.
Vatican spokesman Fr Federico Lombardi said: “The Holy Father is not looking to become famous or to receive honours.
“But if the choice of Person of the Year helps spread the message of the gospel – a message of God’s love for everyone – he will certainly be happy about that.”
Well, that has got to be frosting someone’s chops.
