A slight fix for the Cardinal Stafford story
The cardinal did not say, as reported, that Obama himself was "apocalyptic." He said about Obama that his "rhetoric is post-modernist and marks an agenda and ambition that are aggressive, disruptive and apocalyptic."
So I regret the error. It is only Obama's "agenda and ambition" that are "apocalyptic."
Somehow, though, that does not make me feel any happier about the next four years. How about you?
