Call me skeptical, but I don’t think this is a winning political message:

Pope Francis is the Catholic Church’s Obama - God help us
Pope Francis is undergoing a popularity surge comparable to the way Barack Obama was greeted by the world in 2008. And just as President Obama has been a disappointment for America, Pope Francis will prove a disaster for the Catholic Church.

Please proceed, governor. I hope the right spends more time alienating Catholic voters. Lord knows, they’ve alienated almost everyone else.
