From The Corner
PHEW [Kathryn Jean Lopez]I read that Obama had 200,000 people at his rally today. The pope has him beat — my friends at The National Catholic Register tell me “nearly 300,000″ went to see B16 last weekend in Australia. It’s not that my faith would have been tested had Obama managed more. But I can’t speak for stricter numbers watchers, so I like the safety in bigger papal numbers.
I assume this competition will follow the usual path of escalation: trash-talk, shoulder-shoves, then the whole thing will climax with Senator Obama and Pope Benedict drag-racing for pink slips.
