White smoke.

Seriously, it's kind of exciting. i hope it's the German.

Update to the update: Note to the non-Catholic, but curious: If you thought the conclave was exciting, wait until you see our convlex!

Let's see: "Put a gun in the hands of a German and he turns towards France".

I wonder what happens when you put a bible in his hand?

What if there were some "irregularities"? Has every vote been counted? Where is the paper trail?

He's old. I've got at least one more shot at it. Seriously, here's hoping he has the stamina to un-do some of the damage that's been done by the abuse scandal.

The AP already has a "story" out on the wires about how the Third World is "disapointed" with the selection. In keeping with the AP's rigorous journalistic standards, the reporter went out and found a couple of people who would have prefered a person from Latin America or Africa and then ran the story as if there was some sort of general disconent. The MSM just really sucks....

If you want to see somebody really pissing his pants over the selection, go check out Andrew Sullivan's site......was he expecting a pro-gay Pope?!
