Off the wall
Sen. John Kerry, who still claims to be a Catholic has promised that he will block the nomination of any pro-life candidate for a seat on the Supreme Court.
This might be a good time to recall that, in the published opinion of Cardinal Mahony, Gov. Frank Keating is "off the wall." If any bishop has ever expressed a similar view of Sen. Kerry (or Kennedy, or Dodd, or Biden, or Mikulski...), it hasn't been in print.

Ok....but what about all those "Catholics" who vote for them?

The Jellyfish metaphor is too kind. While Jellyfish lack spine, they do not lack locomotion -- unlike many of the Bishops. A more appropriate sea creature would be the Deep Sea cucumber or sea urchin -- safely esconsed 10,000 feet below sea level. Immovable, content, surrounded by absolute darkness and not built for locomotion. Sort of a cross between Dante's Divine Comedy and Waterworld.

I believe that Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont, who still claims to be a Catholic, has also promised to block any pro-life candidate. Unfortunately, we seem to have too many jellyfish bishops, who fear to excommunicate such Judases.
