Kerry: Bush's Vatican appeal 'inappropriate'

You're damn right it's inappropriate. Asking the Catholic Church to bring itself to bear on the issues in an election, and complaining that bishops aren't supporting his agenda of discrimination against gays and stripping choices from women, is beyond what even I would expect from George W. Bush. I knew he wasn't a smart man. I didn't know he was so thoroughly without principles.

I predict this will not cause middle-of-the-road voters to look kindly on Bush. Regardless of their position on the issues, I don't think many swing voters believe America should be lectured by the Vatican.

Well, at least Bush isn't trying to funnel federal money to religious groups. What? He is. Well, shit, I guess this is inappropriate then.
