AP Says Ratzinger Gaining Support Among Cardinals!

This definitely means he won't be pope. And why do Italian newspapers have sources saying that Ratzinger already has a solid voting bloc of 50 cardinals? Where do they get this information? Who is leaking, or is it just talk, like Italians are wont to do?

Apparently the AP has become aware of the secret papal succession protocol promulgated at the Council of Trent that specifies a double elimination Indian-leg wrestling tournament to establish a new supreme pontiff. Though Ratzinger is past his prime, his Teutonic frame still has a five or six inch height advantage over the more diminutive Latin American contenders. And you can forget the under-fed Indian and African pretenders. Ratzinger has been stomping heresy and kicking liberal behinds for 25 years. It will take a manly Italian (if there is such a thing) to defeat him.
