It must say something about the current state of affairs in this country that The Note is so consumed by just who will be brought along, with the Bushes, to the Pope's funeral. They spend their column speculating.

Meanwhile, we have Tom DeLay and John Cornyn supporting the murder of federal judges, a GOP majority clearly out of control and over reaching on issues like Social Security, the "Nuclear Option, " and Terri Schiavo and doing themselves real, poll-proven political damage in the process. We Democrats don't mind doing the work of pointing these things out to the press, but let there be no mistake that the GOP crack-up is the real story in American politics today, not who's flying with the Prez to Rome.

...The WaPo sees the light.
