    There is, obviously enough, no such thing as a "Catholic vote" and Peters doesn't claim that there is. We all know that there are Catholics and there are other Catholics. Catholics do not vote as a bloc and do not pay much attention to the emanations from the USCCB on the issues. What's very bothersome about Newt is his lack of candor on his lobbying activities, however defined. It's also disturbing to note that he entered public service worth a few thousand and departed as a millionaire.

    I think Newt would be very comfortable if someone proposed redefining Dec. 8 as the Feast of the Immaculate Implantation.
