Pope Provoked Muslim Rage To Help Bush and Republicans: "Ratzinger is not stupid. Including the reference to the passage that has incited Muslim anger was no accident.

The Vatican has become a partner with the republicans, so they coordinate, come the final stretch of election time, to make things happen, make statements, take positions that help the Republicans. "
