    Kerry was going to visit the Catholic National Cathedral outside
    Washington as part of his campaign. Kerry's campaign manager made a
    visit to the Cardinal and said to him, "We've been getting a lot of
    bad publicity among Catholics because of Kerry's position on abortion
    and the like. We'd gladly make a contribution to the church of $100,000
    if during your sermon you'd say "John Kerry is a saint."
    The Cardinal thinks it over for a moment and agrees to do it.
    Kerry shows up, and as the Mass progresses the Cardinal begins his
    homily. "John Kerry is petty, a self absorbed hypocrite and a nit-wit.
    He is a liar, a cheat, and a thief. He is the worst example of a
    Catholic I've ever personally known.
    But compared to Ted Kennedy, "John Kerry is a saint."
