I see New York Archbishop Timothy Cardinal Dolan has taken a break from lobbying to protect child molesters from lawsuits by their victims in order to intervene in the Presidential campaign by picking a fight with Barack Obama over sexual morality.

That’s not as funny as Bristol Palin reading the President a lecture on the importance of two-parent families and the role of the father. But it’s even less convincing.
