image for Lieberman says bomb Vatican City
It would be a much better to turn it into a sports complex

Senator Joseph Lieberman has called on the Bush administration to begin a military assault on Vatican City immediately. Lieberman told reporters he was apoplectic with anger over Pope Benedict's discussion of the "worrying situation in Iraq" with the president during Bush's recent visit to Italy.

"There is no 'worrying situation in Iraq.' That's a bunch of Papal bull. These kinds of statements can create doubt and consternation in the susceptible mind of the president, and that's the last thing we need."

Lieberman is calling for an immediate apology from the Pontiff. If that is not forthcoming, said the senator, the United States should use the full force of its military might to destroy Vatican City. "It would be a much better use of the land to turn it into a sports complex," noted the senator.

The Vatican reacted swiftly, calling Lieberman a "…a cocaine-addicted lunatic Satin lover who compensates for his tiny penis by trying to start a global war."

In the past week, Lieberman has called on the United States to bomb Iran, Venezuela, and Hillary Clinton.
