I caught the following discussion between two Irish Catholics–Pat Buchanan and Lawrence O'Donnell–about whether Notre Dame should grant an honorary degree to Barack Hussein O'Bama, 44th President of the United States of America. Buchanan says no, on account of O'Bama's position on the only two issues right wing Catholics seem to care enough about to make any kind of political stand: abortion and stem cell research. Ok, I'm probably wrong about that. I think they also care about gay marriage. You can watch the exchange at this link (I cannot figure out how to embed video–anyone?).
