Barach Obama made a secret visit to Pope Benedict XVI during his trip to the Middle East and Europe. When it was time for the Presidential Candidate to return to the plane, the Holy Father called for a limosine. But when the driver saw who the passenger was, he begged the Holy Father for a chance to meet him. Known for his thoughtful kindness, the Holy Father suggested that the driver sit in the back with Obama on the way to the airport while he drove.

The road was clear, so the Holy Father decided to see how fast the limosine would go. Almost immediately, he was pulled over by a highway patrolman. When Pope Benedict rolled down the electric window, the policeman almost had a stroke.

Then the back door opened, and Barach Obama stepped out. “Is something wrong? he asked.

The policeman fell to his knees and when he could not be induced to rise, Obama got back into the limosine and it drove away.

When he had recovered from the shock, the policeman called his wife. “The newspapers were right!” he exclaimed.

(P.S. This is supposed to be a joke, not a news account.)
