    On Wednesday, Cardinal Dolan released a statement saying the parade organizers have his “confidence and support.”

    “My predecessors and I have always left decisions on who would march to the organizers of the individual parades,” he said. “As I do each year, I look forward to celebrating Mass in honor of Saint Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland, and the Patron Saint of this Archdiocese, to begin the feast, and pray that the parade would continue to be a source of unity for all of us.”

    Not the marchers or the marching, but it's something.

    Someone actually admitted on DK, "Yes. If it pisses you and the other Greenwald-Tweet-pearl-clutchers off, it's smart." Wow. Just....wow.
