Kmiec Claims He's In the Loop for Vatican Post
(Hat tip: Thomas Peters at American Papist)
Prof. Kmiec claims he's under consideration for that job he's denied coveting:
Kmiec ... confirmed that Obama may be considering appointing him to the position of Vatican Emissary."The President is nowhere close to determining such things because of the order of events … everyone's first order of business is economic recovery," [ED.: Except, of course, for that bit about updating the White House website to make it more culture-of-death friendly, not to mention that whole overturning the Mexico City Policy thingy] Kmiec said. "At the appropriate time, when diplomatic relations through the State Department need to be addressed, I think my name would be part of the discussion."(emphasis added)
Jeff Miller (aka The Curt Jester) nailed it in the comments at American Papist:
Of course he would think that. Everything is always about him. The question is is Pres Obama stupid enough to appoint him?Or brazen enough.
