CNN Seems Surprised That Africans Are Ready For An African Pope

CNN Seems Surprised That Africans Are Ready For An African Pope

These days just about everyone likes to dump on CNN for its graphics gimmicks, 27-person political round-tables, and the total inability of its star anchor — Wolf Blitzer — to veer off-script in a coherent manner. Not me. I'm willing to give credit where credit is due. Apparently, CNN was the only news organization bold enough to commission a massive survey of 20,000 people living in 11 countries across Africa. That Herculean effort yielded this crucial and shocking takeaway:

Holy McGillicutty, stop the presses! I gotta call my editah! Wait a second. I am an editah!

Thank Zeus for CNN, because otherwise we'd have no idea that people who identify as members of a certain group feel that they're just as capable of doing certain jobs — like poping — as people who do not identify as members of said group.
