Left-footers choose Torquemada


Rather like Bush's nomination of John Bolton as UN Ambassador, the selection as Pope of the head of the Inquisition (aka the Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Roman and Universal Inquisition amongst other things) repeats to those hoping for some kind of movement of policy the famous reply of Brigadier-General Anthony McAuliffe:
