Speaking Power To Truth

After a warm welcome of George Bush by Pope Benedict XVI this weekend in repayment for the one the Holy Father recieved in the U.S. last April, Yahoo! News reports this soundbite-worthy observation from the U.S. President:

After the meeting in the tower, they stood on a terrace to take in the view of 44 hectares (108 acres) of manicured gardens, buildings, ancient walls and St Peter’s Basilica that make up Vatican City.¬†

Bush asked: “How big is it?” A Vatican aide responded: “Not quite as big as Texas.” Bush then said: “Yes but more important … this is spectacular.”

Everything’s bigger in Rome.
