Pope Benedict abruptly resigned effective February 28th at 8:00 PM. It came as a surprise to everyone around the world.
Well, Jon Stewart took this head on with the prescient question; What does a pope do after he resigns? Well what does an 85 year old do when he retires. There is not much to do right?
Samantha Bee came to the rescue about the reason for his resignation. It was because he questioned a long term relationship with someone he talks to a lot, whom he has never met.
The funniest dialog follows between Jon Stewart and John Oliver.
I am hearing the name Mitt Romney floating around (for pope)
But he is a Mormon
He was a Mormon. He has evolved. I am also hearing Bachman, Gingrich, etc.
What do they know
What do they know about appealing to a floundering organization dominated by old white men clinging to an arcane moral code who must reluctantly embrace change to stay relevant? There is no crossover there at all Jon. (Of course, he illustrated the GOP/Vatican similarities).
